No sauces, salt or pepper at Gaston's Tavern for the pork shanks. However, I think they are succulent enough in their own way with the fatty tissues that coat your teeth where you really don't need it. I think any sauce would take away from the pork shank experience as they've presented it.
It's supposed to be pork-y and fatty. It's good with o sauces, but I think it could use some carbs. I dunno about any of the other rolls or pastries in Gaston's but I prefer this shank with mashed potatoes. Does Cosmic's still make them or did they revert back to potato salad? It is very tasty though and I see several people going to town on it and enjoying each and every bite.
