One of our key beliefs at Grain Traders is in feeding people right without compromise, and creating meals with lots of love and care even if it takes a lot of time and effort.A good pulled pork, we feel, should be moist, juicy, and packed with the full and robust flavors of its marinade. To achieve that, our first step is to marinate our pork for a full 24 hours, followed by a slow cook. While the former gives it the flavors we love, it’s the latter where all the magic happens.Set Lunch starts at $18
