Pork sandwich Canarsie style?

Evan B. Druce | Jul 5, 200312:36 AM     19

My father grew up in Canarsie (Brooklyn) during the Fifties and Sixties, and loves to wax nostalgic about the food he remembers from the area; Chinese take-out, corned-beef sandwiches, Italian ices, celery soda. Lately, however, he has been trying to re-create an interesting sort of sandwich he claims was only available at a couple of little places in Canarsie when he grew up. It consists of sliced marinated roast pork, topped with duck sauce and placed between two slices of garlic bread. The combination seems rather offbeat, but somehow, it works to create a unique taste that resembles nothing I have ever tried before. So, anyway, does anyone else know of this sandwich? Does it still exist in the New York area? Does it have an actual name? My dad couldn't remember it either, and suggested the oh-so-creative "roast pork sandwich." I think a sandwich so unique should have a name to match; any suggestions, if you don't know the sandwich's real name?
