Finally got around to trying the pork "sandwiches" at Eton on Sackett St in Carroll Gardens today. I suppose they're his version of the guo bao or Momofuku pork bun or whatever, made with what seems like pulled pork shoulder rather than belly and not overstuffed with meat. Freshly steamed buns, some lightly pickled cucmbers, some hoisin.
Verdict? Not bad. Not as good as momofuku. Haven't had a flushing guo bao yet, but I suspect not as good as one of those either. Would prefer pork belly and a little less hoisin. But hey, at half the price of momofuku and a few doors away from me (a lot closer than flushing), I'll be going back for them.
Eton is a nice place to have in the neighborhood.
