The Dish: Lechon Asada (Pulled Pork Sandwich)
This is one awesome pulled pork sandwich, one of many great dishes at Fresca, a Peruvian restaurant with two locations in the city of San Francisco. Juicy, tender, pulled pork meat and a symphony of spices are layered between a Dutch Crunch roll to give a delightful mouthful of sweet and hot, crunchy and meaty. Paired with crispy French fries or a small salad, the lechon asada makes a great meal break from a shopping stroll.
The Grade: Excellent (4 out of 5)
The Damage: $8 (great value for a great sandwich)
