The Health Sandwich at Shank and Evelyn's

Amanda Enclade Aug 15, 2006 02:54 PM

We are arriving in Philly tommorow from Los Angeles and cannot wait to go to Shank and Evelyn's on Thursday to have their AMAZING HEALTH SANDWICH!
Grilled and breaded peppers and veggies dripping with olive oil, sharp cheese on a perfect philly roll. Are the chowhounds in Philly aware of this masterpeice sandwich in South Philly?

    if you like that sandwich, go to Chickie's Deli and try their veggie hoagie. sounds very similar to Shank's.

      I've had similar sandwiches at Sarcone's, Chickie's and Tony Luke's. Chickie's is pretty good
      but Shank's is in another league altogether and blows them all away. SERIOUSLY.

        Why do they call it health?

          That is the funny thing........I think because it has no meat and only veggies. I don't think they realize that breaded food is not considered healthy, but in terms of other philly offerings, it would be substantionally healthier!
