(Look at the bottom of the page for my post on Rochester A-List website, which features my love of the bulgogi sandwich).
Today, partnerships with local farmers allow businesses like McCann's Local Meats to bring consumers products that we can feel good about eating, as well as not compromising on flavor. The utilization of the entire animal, which McCann's Local Meats believes in, allows for products that we may not see in other markets and stores. Kevin discussed the opportunity to celebrate each cut of the animal, while bringing the best culinary tactics to enjoy the product. McCann's works to bring the consumers recipes and opportunities to utilize the different cuts of meats throughout all seasons.
Now, let's get to the sandwich. I will be honest that I have been wanting to enjoy a banh mi for several years - I really have tried. However, in my past experiences I had difficulty getting past the fattiness of the pork belly. (I know others might be saying, "But that's what makes it so perfect." Sorry...I told you I have tried) It just did not work out for me, sadly. However, on a food adventure with a good friend (a blog post to come soon!), we opted to try McCann's version of the banh mi. My friends, I have found a banh mi that I not just like, but thoroughly enjoy! I want to shout this at the roof tops! What makes this banh mi so good, you ask? Well let's start with the perfectly roasted pork laying atop a thin layer of chicken and pork pate, the true secret behind the delicious sandwich. Let's also talk about the shaved and pickled carrots and daikon radish topped with the freshness of the cilantro, as well as the added layer of heat from the jalapeños. Dream Come True. My only suggestion: I would like to have a heaping bowl of the pickled carrots, daikon and jalapeños as a side dish to devour with any meal.
Warning: you may fall in love upon entering McCann's Local Meats. Be prepared. My suggestion: go with a friend, get more than one item, and attempt to share. Yes, this is difficult as initially you will not want to share one bite from your meal, but sharing is good, right? Plus if you go with a friend, you can try another menu item (or steal part of their meal when they go to the bathroom)! Oh, did I mention yet that they have beef fat fries that you should share as well?
