And now, a brief history of man’s evolutionary breakthroughs:
3.5 million BC:
He begins to walk upright.
He figures out how to use crude stone tools.
The first written languages appear.
He stuffs a cinnamon roll with pork confit.
Too bad Kubrick couldn’t be here for this, because the age of the Pull-Apart Pork Sticky Buns
upon us. Ground zero: PS 7’s in Penn Quarter, where you can find them on the new spring menu
This is just like that dream when you went to Cinnabon and found charcuterie hanging everywhere. Also: this
is basically what happens when pork makes its way into your favorite highway rest stop snack.
It’s pretty much a tray of miniature, yeasty sweet rolls, all adorned with the usual butter, sugar and
cinnamon you’ve come to expect. And all the pork you haven’t come to expect—namely, pork shoulder,
cooked in its own fat, whipped with herbs and rolled up into the dough, and pork jus, just drizzled all over
The result is a sweet, salty, meaty wallop that’s as much at home in front of your happy-hour beer as it
is next to your morning eggs and coffee.
Let them try that on the New Jersey Turnpike.
