I’ve seen several Mendocino Farms throughout LA, but never had the chance to try it out. A few days ago, the newest Mendocino Farms (located in the beautiful FIGat7th shopping center in downtown LA) gave away free dinner for one night as a practice run. During my break from work, I ran over there to grab the free grub. First of all, the staff is SO nice… I was greeted warmly at the door and felt a lot of excitement from the employees. Next, I sampled some curry cous cous which was incredible… so much spice and rich flavor that reminded me of India.
I ordered the BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich for my main course, I mean how could I not when I saw this description:
slow roasted, shredded pork in a chipotle BBQ sauce, applewood smoked bacon, housemade pickles, farm house cheddar, mustard pickle slaw, potato salad spread on panini grilled Dolce Forno soft roll
The sandwich was just incredible. I mean it’s genius that they put the potato salad between the bread – the combination of flavors reminded me of a 4th of July cook out. I’ll definitely return for this sandwich and other delicious sounding items on the diverse menu. A+ Mendocino Farms!
