Hot Butter Ball and Porchetta from Park Bench Deli


Park Bench Deli has got a couple of festive specials going on till the month's end. No prizes for guessing which festival those are for but the point is, both were pretty good.

There's a Hot Butter Ball which is basically sous vide turkey in truffled chicken jus and cranberry jam in rye. The gravy soaked meat was tender between the soft slices of rye which allowed us to inhale in short order. I tasted rosemary, not truffle though.


The other item was the Porchetta which featured pork belly in ciabatta with some good crisp from the crackling going on. I think there was supposed to be some garlic aioli and caramelized onions but we were only getting the pork and the arugula. Which was enjoyable the same.
