(UPDATE 5/23/12: After about two and a half years in business, The People's Pig has closed. Cliff will open a new venture in the near future!)
The People's Pig is located at the corner of SW 9th and Alder in downtown Portland, Oregon. As one would expect, it's all about the pork here! Cliff heads this food cart, which has been in downtown Portland since October 2010 (and two years in business overall).

On a chilly Tuesday, I ordered the Porchetta ($8): roasted pork shoulder with Tuscan fennel pollen, topped with arugula and lemon juice on a Fleur de Lis Artisan ciabatta roll.

The bread was OK. Nice crunch on the outside and a chewy inside. However, I believe a fluffier, lighter bread (still with a crunchy outside, of course) would improve the experience when biting into the sandwich.
The People's Pig also sells doughnuts and offers different specials on a regular basis! Hey, this is probably not the cart for people on a diet anyway, so make this a cheat meal or something!
Overall, a very nice porchetta sandwich here! Hit up The People's Pig for a "porktastic" experience! 7.75/10
