New Jersey: White House Subs, Atlantic City: Italian
No trip to Atlantic City is complete without a visit to White House Sub Shop, now sadly down to just one location (the original) on Arctic Avenue, because the boardwalk location shut down along with the rest of Trump Taj Mahal in October. But that’s OK; it’s been going strong since 1946, and it’s still worth the pilgrimage. When you go, there’s only one sandwich you need to order: the Italian. Genoa salami, provolone, ham, and capicola are piled onto a soft and chewy Italian loaf, topped with lettuce, tomato, sliced onion, chopped roasted peppers, Italian seasonings, oil, and vinegar. A full-length sandwich runs about a foot and a half, so you’ll probably want to share it. And if you want to double the fillings, make it a White House Special. There’s almost always a line around the block at this place, but the wait is well worth it.
