Did you ever have one of those days when you just didn’t feel like cooking? (Maybe for some of you that’s every day.) Normally, I like to cook. I have cooked every type of meat and pasta and rice and veggie dish known to man but the other day I was plumb out of ideas and food and I really didn’t want to go shopping. You know what I’m talkin’ about? Did you say that with your best Italian mob movie accent? I thought so. Since we hadn’t been to the White House Sub Shop in AC since the summer and I know it’s always a big hit, there were no complaints from my crew.
The White House Sub Shop, “Home of the Submarines” as it reads on the sign outside the building has been serving up their World Famous Subs on the corner of Mississippi and Arctic Avenues for over 65 years. The White House is a landmark in Atlantic City. Opened in 1946 by Anthony Basile, Aunt Basilia and Uncle Fritz Sacco it has stood the test of time as some of the best Subs around. The walls of the restaurant are filled with pictures of all the movie stars, politicians and anybody who was anybody that came to Atlantic City over the years. Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Tommy Lasorda and many many more. They have old timey booths covered in orange naugahyde if you want to eat in, but most order and pick up their famous sandwiches, which is exactly what I did.
We decided on one whole White House Special, which measures about 20 inches, and has extra salami, provolone, ham and cappicola. A must! one turkey sub, one pepper and egg with provolone, and one cheesesteak (91.1% lean top round steak cut fresh every day) with provolone and fried onions, hot peppers on the side for all. We cut them up and everyone had a piece of everything. Sub Heaven. The meats are so fresh and the local rolls are perfect. No clean up neccessary. Delicious as usual. Next time you are in Atlantic City you have to get a sandwich and check out the celebrity photos, a trip to AC is not complete without it! Take them home with your casino winnings.

Michele Errichetti is from South Jersey born and fed. She comes from an Italian family where they eat, live, and breathe FOOD. Michele was cooking and eating under her grandmom’s feet every Sunday for “gravy” and at home with her mother (a Medigan or American) during the week. Nowadays, she cooks for her two sons, husband, and father most days of the week. She takes “Girl Road Trips” with her friends at least once a month that always culminate with you guessed it, FOOD. She hopes fresh, local, organic, and free range will become the norm. Michele is searching Atlantic County for everything that has anything to do with good food and she’s taking you along for the ride. – See more at: http://www.jerseybites.com/the-team/#sthash.dCBY75LH.dpuf
