1. Cooks County Grilled Pork Loin Sandwich [CLOSED]
Daniel Mattern and Roxana Jullapat are a powerhouse duo. Just look at their pork loin sandwich for proof.

Why should chicken be the only jerk in the room? Front Page Jamaican Grille also jerks pork.

Most food lists suck. This one emphatically does NOT. Really great job!
BTW, does Funke’s porchetta truck have a schedule? There’s not much info on his twitter.

Thanks, Bigmouth. Funke seems to wait until the last minute to release info about Porchetta Truck’s whereabouts. I know they clock a lot of time outside The Dime on Fairfax. Check on http://www.twitter.com/BucatoLA for updates. Also, you might be interested to know that Funke might keep the porchetta truck on L.A. streets, even after Bucato opens, since they’ll be making porchetta anyway at the restaurant.
