Lenny's, Conshy (a must try!)

Enjoy Good Food | Jan 3, 201101:13 PM

I finally made it to Lenny's Deli on Fayette Street in Conshy. My first stop was for an Italian hoagie with hot and sweet peppers on the sandwich. The sandwich was very tasty -- this was one of the best hoagies I've experienced in years -- for something like $6.25. The roll was marvelous and identifiably from the Conshohocken Bakery: dense, chewy but neither crusty nor tough. The meats (cappicola? salami?) were delicious and the provolone was thinly sliced and freshly cut. My second stop at Lenny's several days later was for a roast pork sandwich. Oh, my gosh. It was so out of this world that I raved about it for days and cannot wait to return for another! Hard to believe that pork could be so tasty. The meat is thinly sliced, piled high and heaped with flavorful juice. I did not request provolone on the sandwich, as suggested, and don't regret that -- I wouldn't want anything to compete with the flavor of that pork and its gravy! If Lenny's was open on Sunday's, I would have gone there yesterday for another!
