Porchetta & Co. makes, perhaps, the best sandwich in town. Nick Auf Der Mauer’s cash-only, counter-service flagship on Dundas West is where I first imbibed. Now I can’t get enough. I’m selfishly thrilled they’ve scaled to open additional locations closer to my work. Their iteration at 545 King St W, for instance, helps satisfy my frequent cravings with little-to-no transport required.
One of my favourite sayings is to not mess with perfection. And while there is more than one sandwich on the menu here, I have never ventured in that direction. There’s really no need. If I want something else, I’ll go somewhere else. If I’m going to Porchetta & Co., I’m ordering the same thing every time… slow-roasted pork shoulder that’s been wrapped in prosciutto, served with crackling, chili-garlic rapini and grainy mustard. It’s what they do… and they do it really, really well.
Recent changes in diet? No problem. Keto? No problem. Gluten intolerant? No problem. Porchetta & Co. will box-up your favourite sandwich, sans bun, if that’s your thing. My next mission is to get one of our work functions catered by P&C. That will be a wonderful day! From there, I look forward joining the back of the line at their newest location in the Exchange Tower for a much-hyped breakfast sandwich. If you can’t tell by now, I’m all-in on this place. Perhaps you know what I’m talking about? If you have yet to try this place out, all I can say is that the proof is in the porchetta.
