You're at John's Roast Pork and It's Empty...What do you order?
I was down that way this morning around 10:30. I hadn't had breakfast, so I figured a sandwich would quiet my grumbling tummy and cover lunch as well. I walk in and there is hardly anyone in there. The griddle is empty, so I think "A cheesesteak with no wait!" But then I get a whiff of the pork.
What would you do???
After a few responses, I will reveal my choice...
Like Bigley, I also live close to John's. And I also usually take advantage of the empty griddle for a cheesesteak.
However, it has been a while since I have had a roast pork, so I went for the pork. As I was eating it, I was reminded of what Andrew Zimmern (of Bizarre Foods) said when he was eating both sandwiches. He said that the cheesesteak was one of the best cheesesteaks he has had, but the pork was one of the best SANDWICHES he has ever had.
And after having had a few Aristas at Paesano's since my last roast pork at John's, I just want to say that I would go for John's if given the choice. Don't get me wrong, I like what they are doing at Paesano's (particularly the Gustaio) but I sometimes think that their sandwiches have one too many ingredients on them. It's like gilding the lily.
I don't understand the dilemma? You order both don't you? One to satisfy breakfast, the other to satisfy lunch!
