The Roast Pork on Garlic Bread is a truly unique sandwich from the Catskill Mountains. By all accounts, the sandwich was created sometime in the mid-1950s at Herbie’s in Loch Sheldrake, New York. Combining Chinese roast pork, ‘duck sauce’ and Italian garlic bread, it gained a cult following among many Jewish (and non-Jewish) New Yorkers in the 1950s and ’60s.
It was the most popular Jewish-style deli-restaurant in the area. According to Freddie Roman, the Borscht Belt comic. Herbie’s was where all the entertainers would gather after their last shows at the hotel nightclubs. “Specifically for that sandwich,” says Freddie. “And everyone else had to eat what the celebrities ate.”
Herbie’s sandwich of Chinese Roast Pork on Italian Garlic Bread was so popular among the summer crowd in “The Mountains,” that it was imitated back in “The City.”
