For those who did not see my post in the attached thread on Eagle Rock, Andre Guerrero previewed some of his Oinkster menu items at Max in Sherman Oaks tonight.
A friend and I indulged and had the pastrami sandwich with red cabbage slaw, gruyere cheese and carmelized onions, and also tasted a small bite of the pulled pork sandwich, either served on soft rolls that allow you to fully taste the meat item, and not worrying about losing your teeth in the process!
Beware Eagle Rock - these are tasty sandwiches.
And the accompanying fries, with the garlic aioli, are sublime. Talk about a sauce that marries the food. Yet you can also get homemade ketchup if so desired in lieu of the garlic, but why...?!
And not to be left out, a Boylan's root beer for companion in lieu of the Turchi Syrah for me. Boylan's also offered at Langers, btw!
And also served as the basis for the root beer float currently on the regular menu at Max.
I know my car will know the way to Eagle Rock soon enough, meaning right after Labor Day or thereabouts.
