The Highlands’ Tejon Street is quickly giving the busy 32nd and Lowell a little friendly neighborhood competition. Studded with coffee shops, long standing Italian joints, and Mexican favorites, Tejon Street is a low-key alternative to its busier counterpart. New to Tejon Street is the Old South Pearl Street farmer’s market staple, The Pig & Block. An old world charcuterie and butcher shop featuring cheeses and house-made terrines makes this little shop a carnivore’s dream. The items in stock change frequently: everything from Bacon Bratwurst, Porchetta, and wings– The Pig & Block is a savory stop for anyone in the market for meat.
This weekends specials are Andouille Sausage, Terrine de Forestier and Wild Boar Salami. Follow the Pig & Block on Facebook to stay up to date on what’s new!
