Trek-worthy Sandwiches from The Bacon Truck (Boston, MA)

I'm glad I got to take advantage of the summer weather this year by checking out various food trucks around Boston! One of my favorite finds was The Bacon Truck. I've seen this truck around and love their design: so many cute bacon strips doing random things like fishing or reading! The perfect truck for Gourmet Pigs, no?

Anyway, I finally tracked them down at Rose Kennedy Greenway. The Bacon Truck serves various sandwiches - with bacon, of course. They use exclusively thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon from Blackstone St. Smokehouse.
Other than their regular menu, they often rotate specials. Keep an eye out on The Cuban (braised pork shoulder, bacon, garlic pickles, muenster cheese, whole grain mustard, $9.50)

You wouldn't want to miss this sandwich if it's on the menu. It's a non-traditional Cubano, of course, but mighty delicious with tender pork, that thick bacon and the crispy griddled bread.

I was having a hard time deciding which I like better though, between that and the Turkey Melt (bacon, truck-roasted turkey breast, red onions, beefsteak tomatoes, cheddar and havarti cheese, smoky chipotle aioli)

The Cuban was heavier, but I similarly really enjoyed the smoky chipotle aioli in this turkey melt, which is tempered nicely by the fresh and juicy tomatoes.

All in all, The Bacon Truck makes some great sandwiches! I had a very satisfying lunch there and would recommend you try out this truck next time. Sandwiches are great for food truck meals as well, easy to carry and eat. I walked a bit along the Greenway and found a nice shaded spot to sit and enjoy my lunch.
