25 Pork Sandwiches in America We Love

The Arista from Paesano's (Philadelphia)

If you don't know the place, Paesano's can fool you. The scrappy lunch counter aesthetic has you thinking you're at an old-school eatery—until you notice the house-made condiments and chickpea fritters on the menu. But none of that matters once you bite into the Arista, a re-thinking of the classic Philly roast pork sandwich. It's suckling pig they use, not dry roast pork, and it falls apart into a soft puddle of meatiness that's like the essence of baby pig, cut by the bitterness of broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. Don't even bother taking it to go—it'll dissolve the bread right through. But eaten in the moment, it's the most delicious piggy pile of food you can imagine
