Porkchop & Co.

How I heard of this place: Chinook Book. Coupons make for an excellent reason to dine out in our ‘hood.

Type of cuisine: In 2010 he started Bean & Thyme with the idea that good tasting food made from real ingredients should be made more accessible. He found a niche at the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market serving sandwiches made from scratch using ingredients found at the market and house-cured meats. Bean & Thyme also offered catering services, including preparing lunch at a local preschool.

It was the city of Seattle that offered him the opportunity to open his own restaurant – Porkchop & Co., open since April 2014.

Porkchop & Co. is a small restaurant in Ballard that provides satisfying, well-crafted meals in a casual setting. During the day we serve a carefully crafted menu of sandwiches & salads made from scratch. In the evenings we offer a casual setting for a great dinner made from the highest quality ingredients around.

What makes a place one that you want to go back to again and again?  That’s the question that animates Porkchop & Co.  When we ponder what we want, it’s about a great menu of simply prepared things with an eye for balance, and made from ingredients that make you feel better about the world.  The setting would be a casual environment that made you feel comfortable, not awed.

So that’s what we do.  We look for great ingredients, and we try to think of ways to prepare them that are unique & delicious.”

Ambiance: A trendy hipster joint in the midst of one of Seattle’s (now) most hipster neighborhoods is where Porkchop & Co. found its home just over a year ago.

What I ordered: For each of us, my husband and I, the Apple Melt ($10 each) with cheddar, gruyere, pickled apples, and caramelized onion grilled on sourdough. The addition of prosciutto, which we were told not to miss ($2 more per sandwich).

What I loved: The melty goodness of oily grilled cheese.

Why I loved it: Overpriced and subpar food made for a difficult reason to find an opportunity to return, but the prosciutto was certainly a good recommendation!

Cost: High, but on par with now high, hipster prices in the trendy Ballard ‘hood ($10 – $17 for á la carte sandwiches)
