Bouchon Bakery’s Roast Pork Sandwich is Worth the Splurge
Ever 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 niçoise 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.
