Try the Lomo, one of many delicious sandwiches from Marcona on Melrose. First, there are the obvious, large pieces of fatty pulled pork jammed between slices of crusty, toasted ciabatta. Don't overlook the tangy date mustard which is so apt a complement to that pork that you catch yourself nearly wondering aloud whether you've ever really tasted mustard before today. The onions taste lightly pickled, and the nutty manchego cheese brings everything together.

Marcona's Spanish Gyro ($11) presents itself open-faced, a generous amount of spicy lamb merguez resting on top of a tall heap of arugula. Hidden among the leaves are piquillo pepper and cucumber. Sheep's milk yogurt serves as a thin but pleasant binder.
