Porky is as Porky cart does

On Monday we were in downtown Oakland and stopped to try the porchetta sandwich from the Porky cart out in front of Plum. It was fabulous. A big Ciabatta roll encases a pile of moist, fatty (in a good way) roast pork. Shaved fennel and what tasted like an herbed aioli complete the picture. It was not the hot sandwich I expected but was better for being served slightly cold, premade and pre-wrapped, straight from the cart. $12 also got us a fresh lemonade and a tasty chocolate chip cookie. We split everything between the two of us and were very happy for the experience. While it is not the hot, dripping, porchetta sandwich found elsewhere (Italy!) we will be back for more when we are downtown. Thanks Porky!
