Forgive me if this has already been discussed, but I couldn't find anything about it on the board...

Went over to Jimmy's to pick up some lasagnas for Christmas and noticed that they're serving a new sandwich. The "Philly Roast Pork" has thinly sliced roast pork, au jus, cheese (for the life of me I can't remember what kind), broccoli rabe and red peppers. While I'm familiar with this type of sandwich - DiNic's at the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia comes to mind - I've never had one, so I've got nothing to compare it to.

Having said that it, Jimmy's was pretty darn good. Soaked and swimming in a pool of au jus (just like a really well dipped Italian beef), the pork was tender and flavorful. The partially melted cheese and red peppers were good as well. My only "complaint" - if you want to call it that - was that it was loaded with broccoli rabe. I'm not a huge fan of it in general, so I did take a little of it off the sanwich.

Overall, it was $6.99 well spent and I'll be having it again!

Anyone else try it yet? Thoughts?
