bari foods italian sub

I keep hearing how superlative the Italian subs are at Bari Foods on Grand, and it's so close to my house, but I'd never managed to be over there at the right time. This morning I needed to tack a few minutes drive on to the trip up to the Emissions Testing Facility, so i headed over there to see if they were open at 8:45 on a Saturday morning.

They were more than happy to make me a sub in the gray of the morning. And it really is quite good, an extra-crusty, crispy, lightly yeasty sub roll filled with a well-balanced mix of salami, capicolla, mortadella, mild provolone, lettuce, tomato, oil & vinegar dressing & hot giardiniera. It's not too heavy or oily, and it's permeated with the dusty earthiness of strong oregano, and the spicy pickles make it nice & bright. The sub crust stays crispy to the end, even if it takes you an hour to eat because you have to get your car emissions tested in the middle of snarfing it up.

For $4.50, it's a pretty good deal, and a very tasty Italo-American treat.
