The Italian Special from Faicco's Pork Store

Italian Sandwich

I can't believe that I walked by Faicco's Pork Store every day for nearly a year when I lived in the nabe and I never ventured inside. Shame, shame on me...

I first became familiar with Faicco's Italian Special via Serious Eats' most excellent Sandwich Alley post. It takes a lot to get me to fork over $10 for a sandwich but the Italian Special is worth the coin: prosciutto, cappicola, sweet or hot soppressata, and fresh mozzarella, topped with lettuce, tomato and either roasted red peppers or sun-dried tomatoes. Delicious and perfect for sharing, this sandwich is perfect picnic fare.

I did a post on them a while back. I had purchased sausage for my mom and took photos for her but everyone loved the shots! It is such a great vintage italian shop. This looks just wonderful !! :)
