Hoagies-North of Market

Delucacheesemonger Aug 9, 2012 12:01 PM

While l find Cosmi's hot dry cured sopressata, aged provolone, seeded roll,and the works to be my fav local hoagie, sometimes l do not want to take the 40 minute round trip from my place near Spring Garden St. Are there worthy competitors for the great hoagie category near my neighborhood. Primo's does not qualify as IMVHO their bread is dense and glue-like.

        So you might enjoy this, l drove to Paesano's on Girard Avenue for a sandwich. l called first as Peter sends his staff on vacation to Italy in August. Someone answered and l said great you are open see you soon, he said great. As said drove up and they were closed as were making repairs.
        You gotta love Phila.
