Pulled pork is common at barbecue restaurants, but you can also find it at the upscale 17 (1117 Prairie, 832-200-8800). There, the pulled pork sandwich ($14) is served on a submarine roll smeared with spicy mustard, with sweet and hot pickles as garnish. The sandwich comes with tostones unripe plantain slices that have been pressed together and gently fried, rendering them extra-crispy and perfect for dipping in the bowl of chimichurri sauce made with parsley, mint, olive oil and vinegar.
