So, last week a few coworkers and I trekked out into the heat for lunch.  We actually walked 5 minutes out of our way to go somewhere besides the 7th and Fig Food Court.  How New York of us Angelenos to walk! Although admittedly when I lived in NY I usually didn’t make it past the downstairs Guy and Gallard for lunch. 

In any case, we made the journey to Mendocino Farms’ second downtown outpost to see what all the hype was about. 
Local: check. 
Sustainable: Check.
Organic: Check.
So in other words, delicious and guilt-free. What I didn’t realize is that it’s not all veggie centric – in fact there is a whole range of pork items on the menu – like a Cuban Pork Sandwich,  their version of a Mufaletta, Carnitas, Proscuitto, Pulled Pork, Pork Belly, and Bacon!  Wowwee… still green, but a little bit pink too. AND to top it off they have a blog about sandwiches.  I think I might be making another visit in the near future.
