As Chew Boom readers know, Arby’s recently added a couple of new sandwiches to its Smokehouse lineup: The Smokehouse Pork Belly Sandwich and Smoke Mountain Sandwich.
Both new sandwiches feature Arby’s new hickory smoked pork belly. This article is focused on the Smokehouse Pork Belly Sandwich.
The Bacon Infatuation
America’s infatuation with bacon is real, which is probably the driving force behind Arby’s new hickory smoked pork belly menu option. Just one look at Arby’s thick-sliced pork belly is enough to trigger an immediate bacon seizure. So approach with caution. You’ve been warned.
Let’s go over some of the details to start things off. The Smokehouse Pork Belly Sandwich comes with generous portions of hickory smoked thick-cut pork belly strips, smoked cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce, mayo and crispy onions, all served on a star cut bun.
But does the Arby’s Smokehouse Pork Belly Sandwich live up to the hype? Let’s find out.
YouTube food reviewer Ian K., aka “Peep THIS Out!” got a chance to find out. And just as you’d expect, pork belly is the star of the show, but the smoked cheddar kind of gets lost in the mix. That’s perfectly understandable, considering the fat content pork belly brings to the party. Ian paid $5.69 for his Smokehouse Pork Belly Sandwich at his local Arby’s in Southern California. Check out Ian K.’s full review for his Bomb Sexy rating.
