porchétta [por'ketta] n. roasted pork with crispy skin, highly seasoned with aromatic herbs and spices, garlic, sage, rosemary and wild fennel pollen. Typical plate of the Roman cuisine. Slow cooked Italian fast food.
possibly my FAVORITE porchetta sandwich in the world
Get the roasted carrots- which are roasted in olive oil until they're caramelized and creamy, and then dressed with a bit of pomegranate molasses and a shower of cilantro.
if you're feeling really hungry, get the potatoes and burnt ends on the side. the crispy bits, ooh, the crispy bits

Try the Porchetta Sandwich
Porchetta sandwich FTW!
Pork lovers: eat Porchetta's porchetta. That is all.
Just cant improve on this sandwich...perfect
Keep on raising their prices - it's now over $13 (including tax) for the sandwich
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!
Try the Cooking Greens
Try the Crispy Potatoes And Burnt Ends
Bring your own bottle of wine (but don't forget your own wine opener)
gotta try the pork sandwich finally
I'd like to try a better sandwich than the fennel pollen rubbed pork from here. But it probably doesn't exist.
Try the Porchetta Sandwich - Half size. Really good.
I know everyone says it but ask for extra cracklings on your sandwich. Add a little hot sauce and I'm in heaven!
The crispy potatoes with burnt ends may be one of the best food-things on earth.
Classic porchetta sandwich & chicory salad (dressing = super garlicky) to go.
potatoes and burnt ends ftw
oh, that yummy pork!
The fat in the porchetta sandwich melts in your mouth and the skin is like candy. Don't forget the potatoes with burnt crispy bits. Oh, and share if you get both.
The porchetta sandwich feels like Tuscany! I would have it everyday!
Good lord, try the lasagna, its bonkers good.
Make sure you use the special salt that they have on the counter. Goes great on the potatoes.
Hands down the best sandwich in NYC. Make sure to try the crispy potatoes!
request extra cracklins for that intense crunch
Pick up the sandwich and take it to Tompkins Square Park. The owner will suggest the crispy potatoes and burnt ends.
Dying to try this place...
My favorite sandwich ever.
The best porchetta and roasted potatoes you can get without going to Ariccia, Italy.
PUT THE POTATOES AND BURNT ENDS INTO YOUR MOUTH
According to Sosh, they are now serving the pork lion in a Burmese coconut curry broth (kaukswe)!
Just as good as my dear authentic porchetta back in Rome and Ariccia! Try all their sandwiches!
Lebanese Pressed Chicken Sandwich: $10.00
The banh mi, man. You've got to try it.
Don't be fooled any only order a half sandwich. You will not regret ordering a full sandwich!

If they have lasagna, get it!
Solid porchettas but just a step below the one at Eataly.
