Paninoteca Maggio is a sandwich shop in Santa Ana. Order the Toscana, the sandwich chef Sharron Barshishat considers his signature panino: a masterpiece of porchetta, roasted potatoes, arugula and lemon aioli that's stuffed flat and tight between two planks of ciabatta bread toasted so well its crunch is audible from across the table. But the Toscana is really all about the pig. As beautifully rich as his slices of roast hog are, though, everything in Barshishat’s sandwich is in balance. He has carefully thought through what needs to be paired with the pork. Peppery arugula? Those steamy wedges of potatoes? Garlicy aoili? Yes to all. Cheese? Never.
