Desperate to get some relief from evening traffic, I pulled off I-15 at Cajalco. But instead of going east, I turned to the west and found NYPD.
I just wanted a slice, but they only do slices for lunch. So I decided on a salami sandwich… but they only do cold sandwiches for lunch.
Finally, I settled for a meatball sandwich, which took about 10 minutes to prepare. When it was delivered to my table, I was surprised at its large size. It’s served with a sharp knife, so I started by cutting it in thirds. But when I attempted to pick it up, it became clear that this was a knife and fork sandwich.
The three meatballs were firm, but not too dense, and had a nice flavor. They’re about 2 inches across, so I cut them into smaller pieces. The sauce had a rich cooked-down tomato flavor with a good dose of oregano and garlic. And it’s covered with mozzarella. But the best part was the bread. They actually make the roll in-house, and it showed. It was slightly crusty, but light on the inside.
Between the rich sauce, cheese and fresh bread, this was a mighty fine meatball sandwich. And to top it off, I could only finish about 2/3 of it so I took the other 1/3 with me.
