Husk for lunch

Tiger66 Oct 19, 2013 11:35 AM

Went to Husk with an out-of-town guest for lunch yesterday. Had pork belly sandwich with jalapeno aioli and cabbage slaw.

I only have one word: da-yum. Maybe that's two words.

It was fantastic and a deal-and-a-half at 12 bucks.

    Sounds Yummy.

    How was the pork belly cooked? Please elaborate-- Was it at all "meaty" or mostly pork fat (not that there's anything wrong with that :-)

      I didn't dissect it. It was in a beautiful brioche bun that was perfectly cooked and colored.

      The meat had a smokey taste, but I couldn't swear that it came out of a smoker. Typical meat-to-fat ratio -- very tender. Left an aftertaste of pulled pork. Yum!

      I'm ready to do it again right now.

        The cabbage slaw makes it sound like a pulled pork sandwich. I was wondering if it was similar in preparation.

          I'd say a 1st cousin to pulled pork. Meat wasn't pulled, but it was melt-in-your-mouth tender and oh-so-easy to bite.
