this little piggie.

February 4, 2012

i ate lunch at southie.  i had a fried pork belly sandwich.  be jealous.  southie is a sweet little spot that, at lunch, serves sandwiches, salads & a few sweets.  they also serve breakfast & dinner, each with a different menu & each menu changes daily, though some dishes stay put.
so about my fried pork belly sandwich.  it was decadent.  it was served on an open-face baguette smeared with fennel mustard & topped with crunchy cucumber, spicy jalapeno & lots of verdant cilantro.  resting on top were three large, rectangles of pork belly, cracklins-like on the outside, moist & fatty on the inside.  mamma had “the stand-by” – a cup of the soup of the day (mushroom) & a grilled cheese.  the earthy mushroom soup was finished with just a bit of white truffle oil & parmesan.  the grilled cheese was toasty-cripsy on the outside & oozing melty white cheddar on the inside.  she ended her lunch with a tart lemon square sitting in a pool of creme anglaise.  the lemon square was good but the creme anglaise was great – i could eat a bowl of it on its own.
i see that they have port-infused chicken liver pate on the dinner menu so i’ll be heading back…
