Sessano Cafe and Deli: Splendid Sandwiches
August 4, 2015 | klein
There are plenty of places to get a good Italian sandwich or a cheese steak in the Norristown area, but diners frequently rave about Sessano Cafe and Deli for one very good reason: the roast pork. Owner and head chef Santino Ciccaglione is justifiably proud of his recipe, which slow-roasts a huge pig until it’s amazingly tender and moist, not dry like the competition. In Italy, this kind of roast is called the “porchetta,” and it’s started gaining a following in America in recent years. Served on a wide Hoagie roll, the meat comes out hot and covered with melted sharp Provolone and peppers. It’s seriously one of the best sandwiches the town has to offer. The rest of the menu is fair to decent as well, with some Italian specialties and burgers, but the real draw here is the porchetta. They also do catering and delivery. Prices are extremely reasonable.
