Paesano’s Take On The Roast Pork

Oh wow! Drew Lazor have us salivating with his description of the Arista sandwich at Paesano’s.

The most stellar member of Paesano’s five-sandwich menu selection is also its most traditional — the Arista, thin-shaved slices of unfairly tender house-roasted suckling pig cuddling up to broccoli rabe and long hots on yet another jus-soaked long roll. There’s a small but vocal contingent of Philly eaters that likes to champion roast pork as a purist’s alternative to the overexposed cheesesteak — the problem is that there are about three people in the city who do it well. Time to make that four: Paesano’s rendition is simply — easily — one of the best.
