Porchetta by definition is savory, fatty boneless pork, salted and seasoned, arranged with layers of stuffing, meat, fat, and skin, then rolled, spitted, and roasted.
Other possible toppings include several types of mustard, tomato sauce, mozzarella, parmesan or rapini. They do have soup and potato as sides but if I had the room, I'd rather have more porchetta!
Given that there is only one main menu item, you can go up to the counter and say "one with ..." without specifying one what. Rich was quite amused to try out this theory.
The definition of the Michelin 3 star rating is 1) Stop if passing by 2) Make a detour if in the area 3) Drive out specifically to seek this out. Given that Porchetta & Co is nowhere near where we usually frequent, and given that we definitely need to come back for more, I guess it qualifies as a 3 star establishment in our books.
