Eddie’s Pizza Truck Now Serving Sandwiches
If you stopped by Eddie’s Pizza Truck yesterday to score some free food care of LevelUP, you might have noticed a few new items on their menu. Starting this week, they started carrying sandwiches along with a few more expensive pizza toppings like argula. I stopped by to check those out–not for free of course since I already have LevelUP on my phone–and instantly knew that I had to get the porchetta sandwich when I saw it on the menu. Hello cracklin’s!
The sandwiches are being served up on fresh bread from a small bakery in Brooklyn with the porchetta on a bready ciabatta roll. Upon reading the description, the only part I was worried about was the addition of salsa verde, an ingredient I definitely don’t see on other porchetta sandwiches. Thankfully, the salsa verde works since it does bring a lot of flavor. The porchetta itself is tender and a wee bit juicy, but it lacks some seasoning and there is just too little of it for me to get really excited. Also, I prefer my porchetta in chunks, not slices because the latter tend to be a little drier and don’t have a concentration of flavor or meat juice. The provolone on the bottom adds its own mild, cheesy flavor, but I could have easily done without it and not noticed. The sandwich itself is on the smaller side being that it’s $9.50. For that much money, I want more fillings or a generous amount of cracklin’ goodness.
Has anybody tried any of the other sandwiches? Let us know what you thought in the comments.
