Meatball Sub

It isn’t only about the meatballs – a quality roll is essential – but really, it’s the meatballs themselves, paired with marinara sauce that is their natural companion, that draw all one’s attention when trying to eat a meatball sub. “Trying to eat” is the correct wording because an excellent meatball sub most likely will be too big and drippy to easily pick up. MSM Deli of Tacoma, Washington, adds melted provolone cheese to the formula, making it even messier, praise be. A brilliant cross-cultural adaptation of the Italian formula is the meatball banh mi at Thanh Son Tofu of Seattle, where tender meatballs are paired with crisp vegetables to create a dazzling harmony of texture as well as taste.
