Papa Perrone Completely Redeems Themselves With New Sandwich Challenge Entry
It just goes to show, it’s never too late to change things up. People were pretty underwhelmed by the meatball sliders that the Papa Perrone truck entered into the Midtown Lunch Sandwich Challenge. Complaints were lodged in the comments, and Papa Perrone himself responded… not just in the comments, but with a brand new sandwich entry. Eggplant Parm + Meatballs + Garlic Bread = Full and Complete Redemption.
Check it out after the jump.
At $9, it’s a little pricey (especially when you can get a probably just as filling eggplant parm, or meatball sandwich for $6-7) but man was it worth it. I was a little afraid you wouldn’t be able to taste the “garlic bread” roll through the meatballs and the fried eggplant… but you could. (Although admittedly it might be more of a smell thing than a taste thing.) @Noodlr twittered this yesterday (and I saw it re-posted by Pete Wells the Editor of the NY Times)
“Please, please stop with the formulation ‘Fatty Food A + Fatty Food B: What’s not to like?’ Please.”
It totally made me think of this sandwich, and I’m sorry… but I just can’t stop myself. What’s… not… to… like!
I will admit, though, eating too many of these things will in fact kill you, and I make no promises about how the sandwich will effect your personal digestive system. But, damn, it tasted good going down.
