I was at a loss for what to have for lunch today – until I was reminded that the Eat on the Street cart would be making their inaugural appearance on the Diag. It was a blustery day, not the sort when you would want to sit outside and eat, so I felt pretty bad for the Eat folks as they shivered behind their cart on South U. It was totally worth it, at least for me, for the knock-out sandwich I brought back to my office.
The Eat on the Street menu is simple but wicked delicious:
- Korean BBQ with kimchi from The Brinery
- Pork confit with mustard gremolata
- Lamb merguez with cucumber labneh
All three sandwiches are served warm on Avalon Bakery buns. Homemade cookies and vegetable chips were also available.
My lunch wasn’t cheap – $9 for a giant pork confit sandwich and a sesame butter cookie – but oh, was it worth it. The meat was tender and incredibly flavorful – and there was a LOT of it. I folded the top half of the bun and filled it with the gremolata and half of the meat and scarfed it down, licking my greasy fingers between bites.
Shane groaned with jealousy via IM when I told him about the sandwich, and then groaned with happiness when I brought home the other half for him for dinner. We’ll definitely be seeking out Eat on the Street next time they’re on campus.
