Gastrophoria is a pork belly BLT from Short Order.
I’m normally not the biggest fan of BLTs as they’re always too something or another. For example, there’s the classic too-little-bacon, or the too-much-mayo, or the much dreaded too-sour-tomatoes. I’ve never found one that was “just right” till an unexpected encounter at Short Order.
The BLT there is a smartly engineered sandwich. Tackling the too little bacon problem, Short Order features thick slices of applewood smoked bacon and slabs of crispy pork belly. On the mayo front, slices of avocado are added in addition to a thin layer of mayo to give just the right amount of creaminess needed to marry the different elements together. As for the tomatoes, they opted out of incorporating the usual slices and instead, employed the use of a tangy tomato jam. Crisp bibb lettuce leaves and grilled country white bread tie the BLT work-of-art together.
Goldilocks would approve. Happy eating!
