One Charming Pig
Had the opportunity a few days ago to eat at Noble Pig Sandwiches, in North Austin, near Cedar Park. It was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this hole-in-the-wall, gourmet-comfort-food sandwich shop.
The chef-owners really concentrate on DIY. Their chalkboard menu changes often and features homemade varieties of bread (white or wheat), mayo, mustard, house smoked bacon and more. Before Noon you can also get breakfast, but the sandwiches are served all day with freshly cooked Kettle chips. Other sides include homemade potato salad, jalapeno slaw, pickled vegetables or more.
When we ordered, I went for the eponymous Noble Pig sandwich. It's piled high (but not too high) with house smoked bacon, pulled pork and ham, served up on their fresh made bread with provolone and a homemade mustard. Every bite burst with flavor and had an excellent, chewy texture.
Meanwhile, Julia went for their Thai Chicken sandwich with Jalapeno-cabbage slaw and cilantro. It was creamy, flavorful and had a surprising bite of spice to it.
We washed everything down with a couple of Dublin Dr Peppers we picked up there. This put a big exclamation point on a fantastic lunch.
