the spot: Antonella’s Italian Kitchen 841 Conestoga road Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
the eats: Meatball Hoagie
the bucks: $9
the full nelson: when your meatball fix needs a double shot of gluttony 

Antonella’s Italian Kitchen is proof that the suburbs of Philadelphia can churn out a legit hoagie. Sure, some people might not think getting a Meatball sub is that hard. They probably have never had a real hoagie. Or a grinder. Yes, they all mean the same thing but when you are in a part of the country that will passionately correct you on the proper nomenclature of a giant meatball sandwich, you are certain you are going to eat a very, very good, giant meatball sandwich.

the full nelson: my fav Italian American deli on the South Jersey Shore

I’ve been coming to Giovanni’s Deli for the last 5 summers, pretty much every time I’m down at the Jersey Shore. I have my in-laws, who hail from the Philly area, to thank for making me a Giovanni’s Deli regular. This is a deli that just feels like home. A home away from home built on cured meats and killer hoagie rolls. Now let’s talk about what you need to order . . .

Recipe: Bánh Mì Chicken Sandwich

Asian, Recipe, Sandwiches By March 24, 2019 Tags: , , 1 Comment

The Vitals:
recipe: Chicken Báhn Mì (Vietnamese style sandwich)
difficulty: easy
health rating: healthy – but watch the calorie count on the bread you use. 
time: 30 minutes + 4 hour marinade time(can marinate up to 24 hours)

I literally made this last night two nights ago and it was so good(and easy) I just had to sit right down and share the recipe. All you really need to do is get the chicken in the marinade and make sure you have the right ingredients and the right condiments.

And on that note . . . .

Bang for your Pastrami Buck: Otherside Deli ~ Austin TX

Austin, Sandwiches By February 28, 2019 Tags: , , , , No Comments

The Vitals:
the spot: Otherside Deli 1104 W. 34th St Austin TX  78705
the eats: The Roddy
the bucks: $11
the full nelson: The first pastrami sandwich that has made me miss LA a little less

In the weeks leading up to my imminent departure from Los Angeles in the summer of 2015, I made sure to eat at as many of my favorite haunts as I could. Knowing that I couldn’t get to them all, I made a special emphasis on foods that I knew would be in short supply in the Lone Star State. Falafels, Baja style fish tacos and delicatessen fare topped the list. Sure, one can find a respectable falafel in a city like Austin, but just not in the same frequency as one can find them in the city of Angels, or with the same variety; Israeli, Lebanese and Armenian options abound when it comes to scoring a Middle Eastern hush puppy.

As far as deli fare as concerned, I knew I would be in dire straits. So I made sure to hit up Langer’s delicatessen: home to the best pastrami sandwich in the universe. Yes, it’s better than Katz in NYC. Langer’s magnificently crafted pastrami sandwich, whose rye bread is just as perfect as the hand carved slices of pepper smoked beef, was worth a flight back to LA in my opinion. And I held to that opinion for years now, right up till about last week.
