The beauty of Porchetta is how simple the menu is (above). And if you're like me, who has anxiety when I open a menu with over ten options, then this place is for you. With extremely reasonable prices and a small no-fuss seating area, Porchetta is a perfect place to grab an inexpensive bite if you're on the go.
This was my view while I was dining. YUM!
I always go for the "Plate." Its tender roasted pork, a side of beans and a side of greens, brocolli rabe to be exact. And if thats not enough I have to go with a side of roasted potatoes with the burnt ends of the pork in them. The potatoes are just heavenly. If you want to keep it even more simple, they have a porchetta sandwich that is also phenomenal and if your with a vegetarian there is a mozzarella sandwich option.
Is burnt pork skin good for indigestion? Most likely not. Drinking black coffee on an empty stomach had me feeling a little well, sour. So I opted for porchetta for dinner then leftovers for lunch and I was so surprised to be dusting off the Tums. Warning: If you're prone to the agida then stay away from pork skin. Or just keep the Rolaids nearby.
