Paesano’s Meatloaf Parmesan Sandwich is basically a really good Meatball Sub
Paesano’s makes some of the best sandwiches I have had in Philly. The attention to layering of flavors, the original sandwich spreads, and the brazen use of meats (fried livers?) make the difference. Having tried a whole bunch of what Paesano’s has to offer, when I saw a sandwich I didn’t recognize at the Italian Market location, I had to try it.
The Meatloaf Parmesan sandwich ($8) appears to be as non traditionally excessive as its cousin, the fried lasagna sandwich called The Bolognese. Is meatloaf or lasagna inside a sandwich ever necessary? But I had no problem chomping down on The Bolognese and no problem with his cousin. Meatball sandwiches are totally normz, so why not meatloaf. They are essentially meatballs in strip form. On top is a red sauce, which is on the sweet side, fresh mozz, which could have been meltier, and supposedly sharp prov, but I didn’t pick up on much of that. It was a fine version of what is basically a meatball parm. But given the other, quirkier sandwiches at Paesano’s, you might want to go with one of the others.
