Critic: Spring Garden’s Stockyard is Sandwich Heaven – Eater Philly

Stockyard’s “Whole Pig” banh mi | Stockyard Sandwich Co.

— Courier-Post critic Emily Teel visits Spring Garden scratch sandwich spot Stockyard Sandwich Co, open since October from ex-Morimoto and Kensington Quarters chefs Will Lindsay and Mike Metzger, who aimed to bring “rigorous” culinary techniques to a more casual, hand-held setting. They do so successfully, it seems, with Teel dubbing it a “sandwich nirvana”. The house favorite, bourgignon-esque beef with mushrooms, onions, and cheese sauce is in a whole other realm to the cheesesteak it evokes, and a pork banh mi ticks many boxes: “warm and cool, creamy and bright.”
