New Jersey Pork Roll in San Diego

I found a new restaurant in Pacific Beach named Pop's Jersey Style Cheese Steaks. I ate there yesterday and the food was great. The most interesting aspect for hounds is that Pop imports Taylor Brand pork roll from Trenton, NJ (also known as Taylor Ham in North Jersey). This unusual ground pork lactose fermented sausage product is slightly smokey, tangy sour, and subtly sweet all at the same time. Pop's makes a sandwich with it where the pork roll is thinly sliced, sauted on a griddle, and piled on a grilled Solunto's roll with deli mustard mayonnaise, sliced tomatoes, and shredded letuce. This sammy is off the hook and something every hound should try IMHO.
Does anyone know of other establishments in SD serving pork roll?
