Newport Beach Duffy Boat Lunch Spot: The Trough Sandwich Kitchen
We dined as a guest of the venue
While on our Spring Break family staycation in Newport Beach, we picked up lunch from the popular sandwich shop, The Trough Sandwich Kitchen on the Peninsula to take with us on a Duffy Boat ride around the harbor. The Trough Sandwich Kitchen is one of the most innovative new sandwich shops in Orange County that uses high-quality meats, cheeses, and freshly baked bread.
We walked into the restaurant and immediately was greeted by the friendly staff who helped us to select some sandwiches that would be good to enjoy while on the water. Once our sandwiches were ready, they provided us with everything that we needed to take lunch on the boat including utensils, and napkins.
While our on the boat enjoying the beautiful sunny spring afternoon, when the kids tummies started to growl, I was able to open the bag of sandwiches, and had everything we needed for lunch. My two younger children shared the cold cut sandwich that featured turkey, ham, salami, lettuce, tomato, red onion, jalapeno vinaigrette, swiss cheese, and mayo. The kids devoured every bite, and it was paired to perfection with a side of their famous onion rings.
My daughter and I feel in love with the Caprese sandwich. Inside of a soft squaw roll was a tender chicken breast, tomato jam, mozzarella, a basil and olive oil aioli, and arugula. We have always had a love for Caprese sandwiches, and this sandwich is one of our all-time Caprese favorites.
Finally, my husband was a little adventurous with the Chashu Pork Sandwich. If you’re a fan of pork belly, then this is the sandwich for you. Inside of a cornmeal roll was a generous serving of braised pork belly, marinated eggs, pickled ginger, kewpie mayo, and baby arugula. He enjoyed every bite of the savory sandwich while captaining our boat.
Our family spent the afternoon creating unforgettable memories together while floating on the crystalline Newport Beach waters.
