In this great nation of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year--so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
It is extraordinarily difficult for me to pass up ordering anything with porchetta on it when I see that magical word on a menu. There's just something about those fatty slices of succulent, herb-stuffed pork that fills me to the brim with pure, unadulterated joie de vivre.
A pity, then, that more of it didn't make its way onto the pan-seared porchetta sandwich ($8) at Laurelhurst Market. Best known for its status as one of Portland's best and most reasonably priced steakhouses, Laurelhurst Market also features a butcher shop with a front case packed with one delicious slab of sausage and house-cured meat after another. Having eaten their steak before, I can attest to the quality of the meat here, and the moist, savory porchetta did not disappoint.
