The People's Pig is the king of sandwiches in the PDX cart scene (at least according to The Cured Ham). Upon each visit from The Bay Area, I make it a point to get at least one lunch sandwich here. The only other restaurant I have this rule for is Frontera Grill in Chicago.
Cliff actually has 6 pork sandwiches to choose from now, rather than his highly specialized single sandwich, the original porchetta with arugula and lemon.
At the suggestion of Cliff, I ordered the Cuban sandwich. The Cuban has a lightly dressed slaw on top with a pinch of cumin on it. The pork is moist, well seasoned and delicious. He’s getting quality bread for the sandwich as well, no cheap hoagie, but durable well made artisan bread.
Simply put, I love these sandwiches. Keep it up Cliff!
Cliff and The People's Pig has moved on to, hopefully, bigger and better things. We hope to eat his food again. Here's to another great run in PDX.
