Bouchon Bakery’s Roast Pork Sandwich is Worth the Splurge

bouchon_rock centerEver since Bouchon Bakery opened earlier this year, I’ve been having fun eating through the menu of sandwiches and sweets. I’d previously declared their tuna ni├žoise to be a fine sandwich, and I recently decided to splurge a bit for the slow roasted pork sandwich on a Dutch crunch roll ($11.25).

Pig is the star of the show in this sandwich, and they manage to pull out deeply savory and porky notes, with little too no intrusive seasonings or sauces save a thin layer of melty cheese and a few stray pickles. However, the Dutch crunch roll plays a good supporting role, with its slightly sweet, and flakey crumb with a gratifying crackly crust – like the love child between a Southern style biscuit and a fresh baguette. Served warm, it’s outrageously good, certainly worth breaking a $10 lunch budget for.

  • my pork (today’s post) beats your pork

  • I decided to get this today. Not bad, but was missing a little something. Maybe adding a little spice. Can’t quite put my tounge to it, but I wouldn’t say “outrageously good”. For half the price you can get a tastier Cuban sammi from Margon. I’d only suggest it if you’re truly there for the bakery stuff and want lunch as well.

  • I’m sure that’s good…but what is definitely worth the splurge at Bouchon…the PB&J macron. Had one on Monday, and it was legendary.

  • Eating it now, not impressed.

    Just had one. Now I kinda feel gross; should’ve shared it with someone. It was definitely lacking something – salt maybe?

  • This sandwich is great. I love the pork and the bread. It has a calorie bomb feel, and it’s very enjoyable.
