Fodor's Expert Review Lardo

$ Southeast American Fodor's Choice

One of several spots around Portland that has become known for advancing the art of sandwich making, Lardo offers a steady roster of about a dozen wonderfully inventive variations, plus one or two weekly specials, along with no-less-impressive sides like maple carrots and escarole Caesar salads. Sandwiches of particular note include the tender Korean-style braised pork shoulder with kimchi, chili mayo, cilantro, and lime, and grilled mortadella with provolone, marinated peppers, and mustard aioli. Wash it all down with a drink from the terrific craft-beer and cocktail selection. There's also a branch Downtown in the West End.
