Birthplace of the Sloppy Joe
OK if you think I'm going to talk about a sandwich made with chopped meat and ketchup served on a sad roll... you are very very wrong. I'm here to talk about the ORIGINAL, the TRUE, South Orange New Jersey Town Hall Deli Sloppy Joe!!! This is a MUST have whenever I visit home, no exceptions (except for those 5 or so years they were closed and relocating... saddest years of my life...)
They slice the rye bread on a meat slicer to get it super thin. Layer of rye bread, turkey, cole slaw, russian dressing, swiss cheese, another slice of rye, corned beef, cole slaw, russian dressing, swiss, and top it off with another thin slice of rye bread. Seriously heaven... one of my favorite things to eat EVER. Then they slice it into 8 little squares.
They come in all type of meat combinations... all include the slaw and russian dressing, totally mandatory, and totally delicious. One sandwich can feed 2 normal people... if I'm around you might want to order me my own though... or loose a finger... your choice ;)
This is a ham and roast beef combo. *drool*
