Yesterday we were shut out of Elmira Rosticceria on the way to Asian Art Museum (Elmira was closed for Labor Day, but it was free day at the museum, so it was a wash, luck/timing wise). I hoped we could find noshment at the FM and was I ever right.
Way down at the Market St. end was Koz operating in some kind of unison with Edith's Foods, which seems to be a bakery in Modesto. Three types of meat sandwich and one vegetarian were on offer for $8 each. I got the pulled pork with cole slaw on ciabatta, and while I'm no expert on that style, it seemed everything you could expect from whole hog type Q. Meat was neither too dry or greasy,and serving was huge.
After I finished I said to my pal Ike (who had brought my order) that some sauce would have been nice, and he sheepishly said that there was sauce, but he forgot. I complimented the cook, and said next time I'd have to try the sauce, he gave me a free side to take home with sauce.
Other options are try-tip and grilled pineapple, and smoked brisket and tzadsiki. Vegetarians will have to do their own research. In terms of price, quality, and speed of service, it puts most of your New Age Off The Grid Clownwagons too shame. Also got a great $6 sour cream coffee cake from Edith.
