Muffuletta Madness in New Orleans

Cochon Butcher’s glorious muffuletta.

On the day I flew out of New Orleans, myself and a few of my fellow gluttons paid a visit to Cochon Butcher. As we rounded the corner the aroma of pork and smoke filled my nostrils. Many people suggested Chef Donald Link’s homage to Old World butcher shops was a must. I can see why.

I had no idea the sandwich shop served the classic New Orleans Italian sandwich, but I’m sure glad we ordered a muffuletta. Central might be the originator of this sandwich, but Cochon takes it to new heights. A holy trinity of house-cured meats—Genoa salami, cappicolla, and mortadella—is piled high on the bread along with provolone and olive spread. The latter is decidedly zippier than Central’s. Cochon also warms its muff making it even tastier.


Cochon’s over-the-top Elvis king Cake.

Our eating posse also had some head cheese, pimento cheese sliders, and peppery boudin blanc. To round things out we also two desserts: a slice of peanut butter pie with bacon, and a piece of Elvis king cake. “You’ve gone straight to 100 miles an hour,” our waiter quipped when describing this over-the-top creation. One look and I saw what he meant. The wedge contained peanut butter and banana and was topped with bacon. I was surprised that it didn’t come with a baby Jesus made out of Lipitor. The festive cake was a fitting end to an intense weekend of eating, I’m glad we split it among five people.

Cochon Butcher in New Orleans

Cochon Butcher

When I arrived here, the line was out the door and it didn’t really move. But the wait was well worth it! The decor is cute and trendy.

We started off with the brisket sliders which was the most amazing brisket of my life and all of new orleans! the brisket was moist and flavorful and so delicious.

Cochon Butcher

Then we had the pancetta macaroni and cheese which was very rich but not too flavorful.

my friend had the pulled pork special of the day. he inhaled it!

i had the cubano sandwich with cochon de lait (slow cooked pork with fresh ham and provolone cheese). this was good but the best part of this meal was the sliders.

New Orleans, Part Two: Cochon

Cochon Butcher

 

I'm continuing on here with a few more posts from the recent trip to New Orleans. The last meal we had during our trip was at Cochon, the award-winning restaurant of Louisiana native and James Beard Award -winning chef, Donald Link. Cochon was also recently named as one of the 20 most important restaurants in the country by Bon Appetit for their commitment to nose-to-tail-Louisiana-style cooking.

 

We had some very good porky goodness during our visit. Every dish was strong, sans the crawfish pie, which was just okay, slightly doughy and flavorless, and made worse by the large black hair we found in the middle.

Some pics of standout dishes:

 

Cochon Butcher

 Wood-fired oysters with garlic and pepper aioli.

 

Cochon Butcher

 

Fried alligator with spicy remoulade. Alligator always seems like a throwaway-novelty item at Cajun restaurants, but this dish was pretty tasty. Tender 'gator and a slamming remoulade helped out.

 

Cochon Butcher

The boucherie plate featuring hog's head cheese, coppa, country bologna, pork rillette, house pickles, and pickled fennel. Best pork rillette I've ever had and a damn good hog's head cheese here.

 

Cochon Butcher Fried boudin. Might not look like much, but this was the dish of the day. Boudin balls with an airy panko crust, fried to perfection so that they maintained a gooey-creamy interior. A brilliant bite with the pickled peppers and house mustard.

 

Cochon Butcher

Another boudin shot.

 

Cochon Butcher

Another strong dish: Cane syrup glazed pork cheeks with pickled red onions and potato cake.

 

Cochon Butcher

The infamous hairy crawfish pie. Spared you a pic of the big black hair we found in the middle. Yum. Our server was gracious and comped us the pie and a couple of drinks after hairgate, which was a nice recovery 'cause shit happens.

 

Cochon Butcher

The cocktail program at Cochon is strong, though somewhat limited. The Tiger's Tail, a concoction of Dos Lunas Silver Tequila, Merlet de Framboise, agave nectar, basil, and lime juice was quite tasty. As was aptly named Orange Whiskey made with Buffalo Trace, Peychaud's, and OJ.

 

Cochon Butcher

 

No complaints from me about Cochon. Nice space (albeit smaller than I expected), attentive staff and tasty food. Some of the dishes were on the sloppy side in presentation but the taste was there, so no worries, I suppose. Fun to stop by Cochon Butcher next door and stock up on boudin and other treats for the ride home.
