Sandwich Los Angeles

Daniel Mattern and Roxana Jullapat are a powerhouse duo. Just look at their pork loin sandwich for proof.

Daniel Mattern and pastry chef partner Roxana Jullapat, who opened Cooks County with Claudio Blotta and Adria Tennor Blotta, clearly have a handle on seasonal California comfort food. One of their latest collaborations came together seamlessly on my plate at lunch, with Mattern providing premium ingredients to fill her house-baked bread. For the Grilled Pork Loin Sandwich ($13), the lean meat arrived plenty juicy with crisp shaved fennel, arugula, spicy Calabrian chilies, creamy aioli and subtly sweet apricot chutney on crusty house baked bread, served with a generously-dressed arugula and radicchio salad.

Dose of Vitamin P spotlights my favorite pork dish from the previous week.

Looks delicious.
Did not know they were open for lunch, not that I am in that area frequently at that time of day.
Maybe that needs to change!


Cooks County’s pork loin sandwich would be worth a special trip over the hill for lunch. So would Roxana’s desserts.

That’s a delicious sandwich right there. Yes, sir.
