So far, I've tried the summer pig and the fall pig (pictured above) sandwiches. The summer pig consisted of Braised Pork Belly with IPA Marinade, Aleppo Pepper and Caffe Vita Ground Coffee Rub with Sharp Cheddar, Chocolate Mint, Pickled Blueberries, Smoked Cherry Preserve, and a Fried Egg on top. This sandwich is my spirit animal. Eating this sandwich was such an enormous undertaking. I experienced glory as I devoured this beautiful mess of mouth-watering, juicy pork belly and dripping hot yolk. The delightful flavors of the blueberries and the cherries were helpful in avoiding a completely umami-rich meal.
Similarly, the Fall Pig consists of Greenport Brewery Leaf Pile Braised Pork Belly, Brown Butter Quince Jam, Apple, Pickle, Cheddar, Chocolate, Apple Mint, and, of course, another fried egg. Eating this brought me a bit too much pleasure. This time, the sweetness of the apple and chocolate were a lot more apparent. Since it was sweeter, it didn't make me feel as full, which was perfect because Steph and I had decided to share an ice cream sandwich and then go to Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken for lunch #2. Don't judge me! Sometimes I need two meals... for lunch. Anyway, the ice cream sandwich here is pretty legit. We got the "Lex", which was made of Makers Mark Bourbon Ice Cream sandwiched between Brown Sugar Cornmeal Cookies from Melt Bakery. It was MAGNIFICENT. The cookies were so chewy and sticky. The ice cream had the perfect balance of oaky and caramel flavors with a slight alcohol taste. 10/10 would get again.
NOTE: When looking at their hours, refer to the hours listed on the website and not Yelp. Yelp's hours are incorrect.
Rant: Service is very slow. During our latest visit, we waited about 50 minutes for the sandwich then another 30 for the ice cream sandwich and an extra 15 for the bill. No bueno.
