comfort food at a reasonable price...
Three words: Pulled Pork Sandwich. Deeeelicious! Think: an oozing and generous amount of saucy, tangy, spicy, stringy and tender pieces of pulled pork with a creamy and crunchy coleslaw sandwiched between two halves of a fresh Portugese bun. It is very messy to eat, so be prepared to have piles of napkins ready (in addition to making sure that what you're wearing is pulled-pork-proof! lol!) This p.p sandwich stood out from many others that I've tried because of many reasons, one being the the fact that it was served on a nice, toasty, portugese bun and two, I loved that the sauce was a bit spicy. The sandwich also came with an order of fries which I liked. They were crispy, tasted like pomme frites (my favourite), and very similar to the fries from NY Fries!
Since my d.c and I had dinner plans later in the evening, we made a very wise and conscious decision to share the p.p sandwich with an order of Perogies, made in-house. They were good, though nothing extremely out of the ordinary. Nicely panfried, generous amount (about 6-8 pieces), stuffed to the pocket with pototoes, served with bacon, caramelized onions and sour cream - the perogies were very satisfying.
Very good - both the p.p sandwich & the perogies were under $10, making the total bill a little under $20.
It is a diner, afterall so don't expect a pretty sight here. The floors could use a mop. A renovation could definitely be in order, but I don't think people come here for the ambience!
Yay: Great value, excellent pulled pork sandwiches, weekend brunch available
Nay: Minimal to no decor
