I haven’t posted any eats from my lovely hometown in a while so why not post about a sandwich shop that I’m also late to discover? I’ve had Noble Pig on my radar for way too long before finally making my way up north to visit. I’m embarrassed to say it wasn’t even my idea! My friend Deesh invited me and treated me to a lovely lunch. I was ecstatic that he mentioned Noble Pig.It’s about time I’ve been introduced!

I inadvertently deleted the photo of the outside from my phone, so my standard formula of posting a picture of the outside signage first is broken. Just picture a modest hole in the wall nestled in an equally modest-sized shopping strip. It’s just two doors down from a gas station.

Okay, moving on to what’s most important. The food. Instantly, I was drawn to the duck sandwich. I haven’t had duck in between bread since the pulled duck sandwich at Houston’s Straits!

I am so proud of my menu choice. The duck was succulent and I made sure to slowly chew each bite. It lasts longer that way! I made Deesh try and was quite pleased with myself when he nodded in approval. That boy had just told me he wasn’t that big of a fan of duck. Winning!

Deesh ordered the catfish sandwich.

I love creole seasoning on fish! This was delicious and not overpowered by the tartar sauce.

I recommend both these sandwiches. Bring a friend and do an even split! I can’t wait to go back. It’s 8:00 in the morning now and I have a craving for a the smoked duck pastrami. Sigh.
