Sarcone's Bakery in South Philadelphia's Italian Market is considered by many/most to bake the best bread in the city, perhaps the continent. Some of it goes to their deli, just down the block at 9th and Fitzwater. Gotta have great bread to make a great hoagie.
Went for their "Old Fashioned Italian Hoagie" described as "Thinly Sliced Prosciutto, Hot Sopressata, Hot Coppa, Sharp Provolone and Dry Herbs with oil and vinegar." I answered yes to "peppers?," "oil and vinegar?" and every thing else the nice counter lady asked. The result - a wonderful blend of flavors. A truly great hoagie.
Headed back the next day for the Sinatra hoagie. Prosciutto, sauteed spinach, fresh mozzarella, roasted garlic, red wine vinegar and olive. Just as good, and totally different in taste.
