Good eggplant parm subs?

I know this board just had the "best chicken parm" thread, but what about the eggplant parm sub action?

My introduction to the eggplant parm sub was in 1995 at a small pizza and subs takeout place on Cambridge Street in Boston, back of Beacon Hill directly across from MGH.

The eggplant here was almost meaty -- lots of thin, battered (not breaded) layers. The sub went whole into the oven as I think it should.

This to me remains the definitive one though I have little hope of anyone remembering the place I'm talking about. I doubt it was famous and I also doubt its style would suit everyone. And it was closed by about 1997.

But still, where is the best eggplant parm sub in the Boston area?
