Two Entries in the Encyclopedia of Sandwiches

Esquire – the magazine that inexplicably called the Friendly Lounge one of the best bars in America (though they redeemed themselves by also including Southwark) – put together an “Encyclopedia of Sandwiches” in their March issue and two Philly sandwiches made the cut: the roast pork with provolone from John’s Roast Pork and the chicken cutlet from Shank’s & Evelyn’s.Francine Maroukian, who made the picks, is a Philadelphian (and a great and prolific food writer) so we can’t argue with her cred.

Any other sandwiches that you might have included, should Esquire have asked you to pick?

    They are two excellent choices, to be sure.

    Something from Sarcone’s probably should have made the list, but how can you pick just one sandwich from their list?

    Something from Chickie’s Italian Deli surely should have made the list. Veggie Hoagie? Best. Sandwich. Ever.
