Best Porchetta Sandwich.





The last time I tried to eat at the Stockyards, it was closed. At 8pm on a Saturday night! This time, we went a bit sooner. I was starving after my long run this morning and C wasn't working today, so we hopped on the TTC and headed straight over to St. Clair West. Having studied the menu before leaving the house, I already knew I had to have the Porchetta Sandwich. With the sauteed rapini. And fries. And a Stewart's lime soda to drink. It did not disappoint in the littlest way whatsoever.

First of all, the pork was moist, juicy and layered in beautiful thin slices. The garlic aioli was just enough. Not so garlicky that it overpowered the flavour of the pork. And the fries? Thin and hand-cut. But most importantly, this special sandwich was made with tender loving care by the lovely gentleman in the photo above. And love is that je ne sais quoi ingredient that just makes everything taste that much better. Go to the Stockyards right now!
