    First time having a porchetta and, while I imagine this was a good rendition of it, the overall sandwich was not that interesting, in fact it was rather bland and boring.

    The Lebanese Pressed Chicken Sandwich is roasted, sliced and slathered with toum, an intense spread of garlic, olive oil and salt. Pressed and topped with pickles, it evokes a Cubano by way of Beirut. Read more

    The Tuscan establishment's take on the classic Lebanese chicken sandwich is an interesting contrast to its Bay Ridge and Astoria counterparts, but is as every bit as snappy and memorable.

    The porchetta was a disappointment. The bread was super hard and not enough crackling. Meat and bread's porchetta sandwich is way better. Go to Vancouver and try it!

    the porchetta sandwich is my favorite - it tastes just like a real italian one, but the cut of pork is a bit leaner so it may seem dry if you know the real sandwich. crispy potatoes are a must.
