ANSWERED: Guess the Restaurant

Can you guess which Salem restaurant served this plate? We'll be back with the answer on Monday.

ANSWER: This is the slow-roasted pork sammie, the signature dish at The Old Spot.

I'm originally from North Carolina, so my standards are pretty high for barbecue. I give high marks to this sandwich. The rye bread and dijonnaise set off the meat nicely.

I also have to give The Old Spot props for taking such good care of my wife and our friend Laura. Warm, knowledgeable service in a welcoming, low-key atmosphere.

Thanks, everyone who made guesses this week!


Each Saturday I'll post a photo of a dish from one of Salem's restaurants. In the comment section, make your guess about which restaurant served the meal. I'll circle back with the answer on Monday.

Take a look at this week's meal and Guess the Restaurant in the comment section. Good luck!

Funny, that looks EXACTLY like the brisket reuben with sweet fries from the Lobster Shanty.
