Pigs do fly off the cliff with this Roasted Pork Loin Sandwich from Nepenthe, a restaurant with the breath is taken a view in Big Sur California on Route 1. Regardless of the food, this is a magical place you must top by located between San Francisco and Los Angeles. I was so hungry after a long trip, and the roasted pork sandwich sounded like meaty goodness we needed. Flavor-wise it was a pretty good sandwich, at times a bit dry with so many layers of pork. Few parts of pork slices were over-roasted that added a sweet extra flavor and church. Over roasting seems to work well in this sandwich. The gooey Schoch Family Farmstead Jack Cheese and roasted red pepper aioli helped add the needed softness. Nepenthe sure knows their bread and lunch served on French baguette that was perfectly grilled to a nice crunch texture without been too hard. I was expecting a little more food for this price, which defiantly decreased the overall dish NOMs score.
