Specialty Dishes: Roast Pork Sandwich

Though it stands in the shadow of the cheesesteak, roast pork, piled with broccoli rabe, sharp provolone and long hots, makes up the arguably more flavorful Philly sandwich. Get it at Paesano’s, where the cheese and garlicky greens punctuated by hot peppers melt into a drippy toothsome mess of slow-roasted pulled pork on a seedy roll. (You’ll definitely need the hand-washing sink they’ve placed under the chalkboard menu.) It’s listed on the menu as The Arista, Tuscan-style roast pork that got its name from Greek origins. It means "the best."
