Paesano's Philly-Style Sandwiches
This place is tremendous. They've been around for I would say 5-10 years, and I knew they had a great reputation, but for a variety of reasons, I never got around to trying them until today for lunch. My very high expectations were exceeded.
I ordered their Arista sandwich, which is a traditional roast pork with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone on a seeded long roll. It comes with long-hot peppers, but I ordered mine without those. I don't like peppers on my sandwiches.
This was without a doubt one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten. Without hesitation, I'd send someone to this place for a Philly-style roast pork sandwich before any of the other legendary places in town.
I took photos of the sandwich and will post one or more of them tonight.

And here is the review of them from the late Holly Moore's site: http://www.hollyeats.com/Paesanos.htm
They have three locations: South Philly, Northern Liberties (north of the historic district) and North Phillly at Temple University. We had delivery from the Northern Liberties location. Their menu is not at all typical of Philly sandwich shops. They've got some unusual stuff on there. But again, I've read nothing but rave reviews over the years.
