Genuine Superette, the little sister to Gotham West Market’s Genuine Roadside, opened back in April of this year, and brought their burgers, tacos, salads, and sandwiches to New York City’s Nolita neighborhood. In the past, the eatery has featured a fish and chips dish from two Michelin-starred chef Paul Liebrandt as well as a spicy lobster roll from Texas' lobster roll king, Lee Krassner from Dock & Roll Diner in Austin.
Now, they’ve collaborated with chef Jamie Bissonnette (Coppa, Toro) to create a Thai-style pull pork sandwich. First, pork shoulder is rubbed with Thai red curry paste then roasted and pulled before being added to a coconut broth flavored with chile, ginger, lime leaf, lemongrass, cardamom, coriander, and fish sauce. The pork is topped with quick pickled cucumbers and fresh cilantro, before it all goes between two halves of a toasted bun brushed with fish sauce mayo. The sandwich is available for lunch and dinner for $11.94 and available for the next several months only at the Superette.
Chef Bissonnette told us that he’s “been obsessed with the dish Khao Soi lately,” (a Burmese-influenced dish). “It's not something we'll serve at Toro or Coppa, and when chef Brad asked if I would do a pork sandwich for Genuine Superette, I knew I would have to take the influence of the northern Thailand noodle dish, and make something similar.” We love when chefs jump on an opportunity to serve something that’s normally outside of their wheelhouse, and that’s why it’s this week’s Sandwich of the Week.
