3. Italian Sub at Monica's Salumeria
You may have had an Italian sub in the North End before, but you haven't had the right one until you've sampled the goods at Monica's Salumeria, where the Platonic ideal of the perfect hoagie is attainable for a mere $10. You know the premium, imported ingredients—sliced prosciutto, provolone, mortadella, salami, lettuce, tomato, hot peppers, pickles and onions—but it's the way they all fit neatly into a fresh baked sub roll that gets us every time.
