Corona Heights Pork Store

I've mentioned this place on this board before (in the Lemon Ice King thread), but I had another sandwich from them today, and well, this place can't get enough publicity.

I first learned about the Corona Heights Pork Store from NY Eats (Ed Levine) who loves their chicken cutlet parm hero. I've tried a sampling of all of their heros over the last few years - the veal parm, sausage & egg, sausage & pepper, and the famous chicken cutlet. They are all amazing. Understand - this place is a butcher shop - the sandwiches are just a sideline for those lucky folks "in the know". They make their own sausage, mozzerella, sauce, prosciutto, etc. Call 15 minutes before you want to pick it up and they will have it ready.

The thing that makes this place a destination for anyone in the remote vicinity is that they meet my "Big Four" criteria of fine chowhounding: Quality, Quantity, Price and Friendliness: Today I got the chicken cutlet parm hero, it was freshly made to order from homemade ingredients, enough for two meals, cost $6, and included advice on how to make my cold go away.

Just wanted to let y'all know about this place! They're at 107-04 Corona Ave. in Flushing, take 108 St exit of the LIE north, and make a left when you see the Lemon Ice King.
