Best Use of PB & J - 2013
PB & J de Puerco at Milagro Grill
4280 E. Indian School Road
Phoenix, AZ 85018
The humble peanut butter and jelly sandwich gets a twist of Mexican-American fusion at this Arcadia restaurant owned by the grandkids of Macayo's founders Grandpa Woody Johnson and wife Victoria. Called the PB & J de Puerco, this hefty hoagie features thick, downy bread layered with slices of delectable pork belly, tomato jam, peanuts, arugula, and chiltepin peppers. Sure, the classic flavors of salty and sweet are there, but the de Puerco adds spicy and smoky notes as well, making this take on PB & J anything but ordinary.
