3 Sandwiches to Pick up at Your Manchester Sub Shop
Some days you just don’t feel like pizza. Crazy, I know, but it happens to all of us occasionally. If you’re in the mood for takeout but not the mood for pizza, the solution is obviously sub sandwiches. And you’re in luck because your favorite pizza place, Alley Cat Pizza, is also your favorite Manchester sub shop. It’s impossible to lock down which are the best, but let’s take a look at some of our favorites.
Although some of the details change from region to region, the steak and cheese sub owes its essentials to the Philly cheesesteak. Originating in Philidelphia in the 1930s, a classic steak and cheese sub is thinly sliced beef, grilled, and served on a hoagie roll with cheese. Sautéed onions are a common addition, as are other sautéed or grilled vegetables and hot sauce. Which cut of beef and type of cheese can vary by region and sandwich maker, but the basics remain the same.
A classic, and a hero in the lineup of meals you can hold in your hand. It’s been around since the early 20th century, and it’s easy to see why it’s always been a favorite. In non-sandwich form, a chicken parmigiana is breaded chicken covered in tomato sauce and cheese, usually served over pasta. A comfort food for many, we love it in its classic form, but there’s something special about it when it’s cradled in a warm sub roll.
Everyone loves a meatball sub, right? A staple of Italian-American cuisine, it also came on the scene in the early 20th century. As it turns out, the first half of the 20th century was a great time for sub sandwiches. Your classic meatball sub is a long roll filled with meatballs and then covered with red sauce and cheese. Mild cheeses such as mozzarella and provolone complement this sandwich best and are the most common.
