Best of Philly 2007 Sandwich

Lou's Sandwich Shop

No overstuffed two-meal belly-buster sandwiches at Lou’s. The Zep is a simple sandwich: five thin slices of cooked salami, two slices of provolone cheese, raw onion, tomato, oil, and lots of oregano, on a soft round roll from Conshohocken Italian Bakery — and as usual, the bread makes the sandwich. Lou’s has been at it since 1941, and may have invented this sandwich, depending on whom you believe. Wherever it started, it’s perfect for a lunch bite and all but impossible to find outside of the once-Italian-immigrant enclave of Norristown.
