Sandwiches from Esposito's Pork Store

I had a craving for Roast Beef sandwiches the other day and thought I'd try getting it at G. Esposito and Sons Pork Store, (357 Court Street, between President & Union, 718-875-6863) the place with the big fiberglass pig outside, waving to passersby, beckoning them to come in. Inside, dry sausages of all sizes hang from the ceiling and all sorts of goodies fill the shelves.

My roast beef sandwich came piled high, and I ordered it with cheddar, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, salt & pepper on a roll. It was one of the best Roast Beef sandwiches I have ever had. It was perfect. Tender meat, good roll, well seasoned. Lovingly made as well by the mean behind the counter. It so hit the spot. I ate half before I realized I needed to take a picture!

My BF ordered the sweet Sopressata sandwich with provolone, lettuce, tomato & mustard. This was great too, with thinly sliced provolone, delicious meat, on a crusty sesame seed roll.

I highly recommend this place if you're desiring deli sandwiches - there's more to this place than pork!

They're the best. I am hooked on the sweet Sopressata right now. I can go through a whole sausage in like a day and a half. :o

That looks like one heckuva sandwich! I wished I lived closer to Brooklyn, but alas, it's quite a long way from San Diego !
