You Know What’s Really Good? Pan Con Lechon From The Butcher Shop.

I have been actively looking for the Best Pan con Lechon in Miami for the last couple of years. During that time I had my friend and my accountant constantly tell about this spot in Palmetto Bay called The Butcher Shop.

I was headed down south on US1 when I remembered I was in the vicinity of it. I walk in and make a beeline for where the Pan con Lechon is created. I ask for two to go. After I’m handed the sandwiches I turn around to the counter lining the wall and decide I need to try this right here, right now.

I unwrap and take a bite. I begin to daydream and I’m flying through the sky like my favorite scene in the Big Lebowski. That first bite sent into a state of euphoria. Before I know it I’ve eaten half of the sandwich. It’s as if time hasn’t passed.

The Pan con Lechon is served on this great Cuban bread that becomes razor thin when toasted and contains this moist marinated Pork with Onions and crispy skin. There is only one word to describe it, unbelievable.

There’s more to The Butcher Shop than just the incredible sandwich. There are other foods and daily specials that can be had including their Chicharrones, another big winner.

I would love to say that next time I’m going to try something else but for now, that would be impossible, I’ve only got eyes for the Pan con Lechon.
