I really love this porchetta sandwich! I can’t eat it very often because the porchetta is super fatty, but that just means it’s that much more flavorful. Noms!

They’ve upped the price of this sandwich once again, but I still think it’s a great deal since it’s SO delicious and quite filling. This is still one of my favorite cheat lunches during the work week.

This sandwich is as good as ever. The porchetta seems to be even fattier these days (which I’m not gonna complain about) and just packed with flavor. I love this as a special treat every once in a while.

Can you say fatty, salty, tasty, tender, amazing, deliciousness!?  I’m in love with this sandwich.  And apparently, so is everyone else if the long lunch line at the Ferry Building food stand is any indication.  Roli Roti rotisserie roasts the porchetta right out of their cart/truck, and it’s mesmerizing to watch the beautiful fat drip down the stacked spits.

After slicing the pork, they soak up all the delicious juices left on the cutting board with a split Acme roll before piling on the meat, onions and arugula.  They make sure to add pieces of the crispy skin for good measure.  What results is heaven in a to-go bag!  Count me in!
