Carnitas Snack Shack: There’s no such thing as too much pork. Take, for instance, the BLT from the “crack shack”; dangerously addictive as-is, chef / owner Hanis Cavin revealed that substituting its ham with pork belly — crisped on the griddle — has become popular among regulars. Sweet brioche bread is sliced to order and manages to hold layers of crunchy, chewy bacon, generous slices of rich belly, plus all the fixins’. It’s worth the wait in that long line — and best eaten standing up. 2632 University Ave. in North Park
The best BLT sandwich in San Diego? We think so…
