      Hey, What's nutier than people who take pictures of their food. I guess we're all in the same boat.

      Just ask anyone who has seen my purple runza pic!

        Roast pork with provolone and rabe. 
         

         
        This is one serious good sandwich.  The pork was fall apart tender with lots of garlic.  Life is good.

          Joe that looks incredible!  My mouth is watering sooo much right now.  I literally had to make a slurping sound.

            I'll give Santangelo's a try.

            I usually go to Pudge's in Blue Bell:

            Their website needs an update as they recently moved to a new location nearby on DeKalb Pike(202)

                I was in Norristown very briefly on Sunday; my brother and sister-in-law, however, were able to get me a "zep" and some philly sticky buns from the Corropolese Deli. One word: YUM! The sticky buns, especially, were truly heaven.

                Excuse me while I gobble another fish oil pill, though. LOL

                  If we measure a successful trip report by whether or not it makes you hungry even if you just ate, then....well, I am hungry again.

                    Thanks all for the kind words.

                    billyboy, In that neck of the woods Subs are called Zepplins or Zeps for short. The long hots are my favorite, not too hot and great pepper flavor. I put them on everything.


                    in this neck of the woods, they're called hoagies (when cold and grinders when hot) - unless the owner of the establishment is from somewhere else.
                     
                    gonna have to check this place out - the food looks GOOD!

                            Joe,

                            I totally forgot this thread.  The wife and I have been on a long-term weight-reduction mode of eating, and that photo of the breakfast zep is like heroin to an addict.  Boy does that look great.  And like 2000 calories!

                                I was looking forward to a breakfast sandwich on a hard roll with Taylor pork roll and long hot peppers this morning.  I got a broken heart instead.
                                 
                                Anyone have info about why they closed?
                                 
                                My guess would be pressure.  They were always busy, maybe too busy.

                                  As an owner I cannot believe too much pressure, one gets use to high pressure. the real pressure is when there isn't any pressure!
                                  Sorry about your loss, I'd eat breakfast there every day if I lived close enough, great pics you posted Joe, since 08.

                                    Hey Joe, your visit and trip report was the kiss of death. I can only worry that your last visit to Seattle will bring the same result, stay out of my town.....................

                                        Sorry to hear about this. I was lucky enough to have had a Superimo after reading your post (I posted about it somewhere but apparently not in this thread) and stopping there on the way back to NJ from a morning meeting nearby. Great, and unique, sandwich!
                                         
                                        So, thanks again.  
                                         
                                        Hey, my wife just asked me to make a quick run to the Asian Produce market over in Plainfield for a few things for tomorrow's Christmas Eve dinner. And on the list is Broccoli Rabe. Maybe I'll ask her to cancel the Lasagna and make Chicken Superimo instead. Right....

                                              THEY ARE OPEN!!
                                              They moved in August. They are a few blocks west of where they used to be in a building that once was the Conte Luna Pasta Plant.

                                              SANTANGELO'S IS CLOSED

                                              I was looking forward to a breakfast sandwich on a hard roll with Taylor pork roll and long hot peppers this morning.  I got a broken heart instead.

                                              Anyone have info about why they closed?

                                              My guess would be pressure.  They were always busy, maybe too busy.

                                                  You're welcome. I've been there a few times since they moved and there's much more room inside and it's way easier to park now.

                                                      I did an official review for Santangelo's.
                                                       
                                                      Bruce, you did make the process easier, thanks.
