A quick Update of some Seriously good Food.

So there were two points this past weekend where I was eating something and literally had to stop and take a moment because the food was that good. First up is the Cubano Sandwich from the Spotted Pig.



Oh my goodness this is the best sandwich I have ever tasted in my life. For starters the bread has an excellent crunch and the insides are toasted and buttered with maybe a little garlic.

Next is the amazing healthy serving of gruyere cheese which comes just oozing out of the sides of the sandwich.

But oh wait...there is so much more.



The slow roasted pork is incredibly mosit and melty, proababy due to the fact that it's cooked in duck and pork fat! Topped with pickled jalapeno peppers and an amazing Prosciutto de Parma it has all elements of a kick ass sandwich.

It came with an arugla salad on the side which really helped to lighten the rich flavor of the pork although I would have enjoyed my sandwich either way!

The other amazing thing I ate was the Beef Short Rib at the new BBQ joint Wildwood.

This thing is mammoth!!! Fred Flinstone style it comes out and is packed with flavor. I had thought Hill Country was the best but this place brings BBQ to a whole other level. The meat was again incredibly tender and moist with a fantastic sauce.

We had a couple other things there- the brisket being the other highlight of our meal- and really enjoyed it.

What's really nice is that they also have an excellent beer list with everything from Ommegangs to Lagunita's. I envision myself spending a lot more time at Wildwood in the future!

Now I need to get back on track and try and have some vegetables or something. It's really hard when this city is filled with such good meat.
