A traditional street food of Central Italy, porchetta is a mindblowingly moist roast of pig that is wrapped in a crispy layer of pork belly. At Porchetta in the East Village, you can either have it hacked up and served in a perfectly crisp piece of italian bread, or on a plate with a few different sides.
Above is kale, brocolli rape and spinach - drenched in a glorious amount of garlic and oil.
And for the faint of swine heart: the mozzarella sandwich - with sundried tomatoes, basil, capers and olive oil. Also outstanding.
