Nothing can explain to you my joy at having cracklings for the first time -- the crispy skin of pork. Porchetta has been vending at food festivals and events around the city, but the original shop is still my favorite. Ask for your pork with cracklings and go home happy and full.
Only one thing is sold at this tiny East Village storefront, and it isn't prime rib, roast chicken, or hummus. The titular sandwich is monstrously enjoyable.
Tender Juicy Roast Pork Sandwich – Chinese like roast pig and when this sandwich shop opens, I know I am going to love it no matter what. I saw this huge rack of roast pig on display and I gave in right there.
Porchetta uses high quality bread and they give you a generous portion of roast pork. It immediately reminds me of the Chinese roast pork in Chinatown, so tender and juicy.
It does not have extra sauce or toppings. It is simply a pork sandwich, nothing else. However, it is truly amazing and if you like pork, come to Porchetta!
Porchetta is sublime – Simple food done right. The pork is delicious! The herbs are perfect and the ratio of crispy skin to juicy pork is sublime.
I could eat their food almost every day. A little pricey but so worth it!
Stark but accomplished East Village takeout specializes in just one thing: pork sandwiches. – In Short
Porchetta is a project that shows singular clarity and focus of mind. It has no furniture, no menu, no service, no amenities. All it has are pork sandwiches, overloaded into fresh loaves of Italian bread and served with or without equally porky potatoes and some greens. There's no beer, but gourmet sodas, and you can always grab a beer at a nearby bodega.
