Billing itself as an authentic New York delicatessen, this chain manages to live up to its self-proclaimed reputation. There are four branches across the city but this newest addition is the most spacious for eat-in, where the others are geared more toward take-out offerings.
Coffee is cheap and adequate, breakfast is generous and affordable, but the Pig and Heifer comes into its own for its sandwiches. Forget the generic, ubiquitous sub chains found across the city – this place knows how to do proper bread and real fillings.
Without burning a hole in your pocket, choose from a vast range of meat, cheese and spread choices in creations such as the Bostonian, Hot Colin or Lombardi. Fillings aren’t run of the mill convenience store-style; options include pastrami, sauerkraut, salami, serrano ham, olives, pickles, spinach, gorgonzola, and many more interesting delicacies.
Other branches can be found on Amiens Street, Camden Street and Pearse Street. Keep a look out for a flavoursome lunch time grab with American-style portions.
