Jake’s Sandwich Board in Philadelphia

The sandwich reigns over Philadelphia. The king: the cheesesteak, which dates back to the 1930s. But now foodies are searching for fresh, innovative takes on such classics. Of all the delis in the city, Jake’s Sandwich Board is one of the leaders. Using local ingredients like loaves from the famous Carangi Bakery and whole pigs from the nearby Italian Market, Jake’s makes sandwiches that have locals and bloggers raving.

The Fire Steak sandwich starts with the traditional ingredients (rib-eye, fried onions, and provolone cheese) and adds a huge amount of heat with Jake’s homemade fire sauce and a crunchy deep-fried hot pepper (a ‘long-hot’ in local parlance) to top it off. The short, sweet menu also features steak sandwiches with crunchy peanut butter and a wildly popular Pig Sandwich that lets serious eaters choose toppings and spreads to create the juiciest and most succulent masterpiece without additional charges. Oh, and don’t forget to wash it all down with Jake’s microbrewed soda.
