Pack Leader

Pennypackers delivers big flavors in small packages


In a perfect world, your Snapchats would be safe, the government would function, and porchetta sandwiches would be readily available.

Let's work on the last one, for now.

Unlike Congress, Pennypackers, the new sandwich spot in Magoun Square, is actually popular. After taking home the crown at this year's Food Truck Throwdown, the Pennypacker crew found a permanent home with their first brick-and-mortar location. Head to Somerville, then follow the scent of porcine goodness. 

Boom: porchetta. Now, let's work on the government thing.

First step: Get both sides around the negotiating table. Second step: order the signature sandwich, a masterpiece of tender sliced porchetta layered with a tangy touch of pear mostarda on warm ciabatta. Final step: watch as Democrats and Republicans finally agree on something — then wipe each other's mouths.

If negotiations drag on, there are more sandwiches (roast lamb, cola-braised brisket, grilled chicken, and the roasted grape and olive taleggio), mushroom soup, and a beet salad with honey vinaigrette and greens. 

As for Snapchat, don't think we have a solution for that one.

Maybe start sending pics of porchetta to be safe?
