When we’ve finally convinced our one wavering friend to try a roast pork for the first time, we take them to Shank’s on the waterfront. And after they give it a try, we usually get a heartfelt apology in the form of a scented candle or new house plant for taking so long to have some sense. Their sandwich is everything we want in a traditional roast pork: a hefty combo of thick-cut meat, tender veggies with a peppery kick, and melted cheese on a sesame seed roll. When we’re finished eating it we look back on it fondly, like the over-complimentary people we meet in the club bathroom or our childhood summer camps. Thankfully, the feeling of sadness doesn’t last long–we can just come back tomorrow.
