Pork Hoagies?

I have a friend from the east that says, "have you ever had a pork hoagie"? He says, "you can't get them in Calif".
Well, Where are they? He is correct, I have not found them!
Help me out PLEASE!
I am in Costa Mesa...

  1. Not quite sure what a pork hoagie is. A Hoagie is simply a cold-cut sandwich. Many deli meats are made of pork. How is the pork prepared in the one you're describing?

        I'm not in Los Angeles, but I'm from Philly. On occasion, I've heard banh mi called pork hoagies, as well, although they're usually called Vietnamese hoagies.

    1. I will try to pry more info from my buddy, he skips a lot of details! Thanks SO MUCH for the replies...

      1. shagdaddi, I bet your friend was talking about an Italian Roast Pork Hoagie with Broccoli Rabe like they serve at Tony Luke's in Philly:

        Mario's Deli in Glendale has an Italian Roast Pork Hoagie on its menu under "Hot Sandwiches" but no Broccoli Rabe.

        1. a pork french dip sandwich from philippes without being dipped might work although i prefer it dipped....also portos has a sandwich called media noche lechon or something like that.....that is similar but you have to remove the garlic from it.
