Three Little Piggy's

A little piggy named ham laid on the bottom of a sandwich, his brother bacon jumped on top of him while another little piggy named pulled pork finished this sandwich off before adding some extra ingredients. And, this big bad foodie was about to enjoy some little piggy’s without huffin’ and puffin’ and blowing a house in.

This pork filled sandwich named the, Smokey Three Pigs and Cheese is found at a new place in downtown Hudson called Mallory’s and will be added to our favorites list. My wife and I had an extra day off for the 4th of July holiday and we decided to have a Monday-Funday and just enjoy the day. We wanted a rooftop and great food, and my wife’s friend made the recommendation to check Mallory’s out.

Their space is a very cool and nicely remodeled typical downtown Hudson brownstone, but with a very nice rooftop to enjoy a view of the St. Croix. While there are a couple other rooftop/patios in downtown Hudson, nothing compares to Mallory’s. As we started to look over the menu, we were greeted by one of their very friendly servers to grab our adult beverage order. I went for a Spotted Cow (because that’s what you do when you’re in Wisconsin) and my sweetie went for their fresh made Cucumber Mojito.

As we sat and enjoyed the day, we ordered up some lunch – the previously mentioned Smokey Three Pigs and Cheese and their Loaded Philly Cheesesteak. You already got a little taste of what the Smokey Three Pigs includes, but let me make it a little clearer and let you know how darn good this thing was. Pork carnitas, smoked ham, Wisconsin cherrywood smoked bacon, hickory smoked cheddar, tomato and onion with BBQ sauce on a brioche bun. You will hard press to find another pork carnitas mad as well as Mallory’s was and when you add all the other pork family to this giant sandwich and fixins’, you have yourself a masterpiece!
As for the Philly, it’s their traditional Philly Cheesesteak, but then they add carmelized onions, wild mushrooms and mixed bell peppers. They cooked their Premium USDA Angus to a tender, juicy and seasoned just right, perfection. Add all the extra deliciousness and you have yourselves a Philly worthy of making the Food Gnawledge – On The Streets of Philasota, Philly top 10 list. One of the sides that you can upgrade to is a House Made Tot they’ve created. Shredded potato, cheese and sour cream hand-rolled. Served with their house buttermilk ranch. Man were these things delicious!
This may have been our first visit to Mallory’s, but it’s certainly not going to be our last and we will definitely be adding it to our favorites list. You will not be disappointed and you should definitely make a special trip to downtown Hudson to check out Mallory’s.
