A Sandwich a Day: Pulled Pork at The Commons Chelsea

If living in Durham has taught me anything, it's that pulled pork sandwiches should come with a mess (and yes, that is the correct term) of meat, spilling off the sides.

Authentic Mexican truck near Flatiron?

The other day I was walking the Highline. I had just gotten off, starving, and got a carnitas gordita at a food truck with this short older Mexican lady.

Turns out gorditas aren't those crappy things you get at Taco Bell. They're a cornmeal shell with hot fatty pork bursting out. Cilantro, onions, and green sauce finish it off, with lime for balance. They're mind blowing, game changing, and I dream of finding another source for lunch.
