Finding this sliver of a restaurant in this huge city was rewarding. The banh mi sandwich is fabulous, the potatoes and burnt ends were a epicurian delight. Porchetta is classic italian street food akin to hot dog carts in NYC and this establishment gets it right.

Small shop, which offers excellent pork sandwiches. Liked the Vietnamese variation in particular. Not cheap, but high quality for a on-the-go snack.

My wife and I heard about this place on the Food Network. We decided to walk across town for a late lunch. All I can say is wow! The Pork melts in your mouth. I had a PorkSlap beer with my sandwich...which was a fun pairing. This place is a tiny little hole in the wall that is really fun.... More

After just arriving in Manhattan today, we wandered around and saw this tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant, serving only pork and chicken (the latter requires a wait). We split a pork sandwich and it was delicious! In Ecuador, we would call this 'hornado.' Very juicy and tasty!

If you love pork, you must visit. Very small place so consider take out. The basic Porchetta sandwich is a classic. Recently added a Thai Porchetta sandwich that was equally great. Worth a stop if you are passing through the lower East Side.

We enjoyed our porchetta sandwich on the front benches of this tiny shop. Often times I prefer food I make at home myself, but this undertaking with pork is one I'll leave up to the professionals at Porchetta. Check it out when you're craving a filling sandwich!

The blend of spices is redolent of home cooked meals and family gatherings. My family enjoyed the sandwiches as well as the vegetables. Nevertheless, the establishment is very small. Overall, Porchetta is highly recommended if you are in the mood for an authentic meal.

Beautifully scented and flavored meat. It's definitely worth a stop on your East 7th Street taste-trawl.

Tiny place, but delicious food. If you like pork with skin, this is the spot for you. Great sandwich and plates. The prices have gone up considerably, now a sandwich is $14. Used to be $9 when I first start going there. But they are still very good.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
