We were looking for a late lunch in the Old Port, on a Saturday, which isn't as easy as it sounds even in this foodie town. A lot of the restaurants here that serve a nice lunch, only do so on weekdays and then open for dinner only on Sat. There are tons of brew pub type places with the wings and fries, but there just had to be a really good bite out there and boy did we find it.
At The Blue Rooster, it's order at the counter and seating is several stools facing the wall or a couple of benches that are turned to the only window and of course takeout.
We ordered Caroline's Pulled Pork sandwich, served on a huge homemade biscuit. Nicely seasoned tender pork, chopped slaw and sour dill pickle slices made for the best sandwich I have had in a long time. About 6 sandwiches were on the board along with several hot dog combinations. Seems each menu item has been perfectly crafted to give a spark to the taste buds. All I can say is "umami"!
