There's nothing like walking into an Italian market and finding it packed with customers debating the pronunciation of gabagool and capicola. Doris' Italian Market is that kind of place. Straight-off-the-boat Italians and hardcore Sopranos wannabes alike flock to Doris' to pick up freshly made Italian sausage, cold cuts, homemade mozzarella cheese, olive salads, and Italian pastries. It's a bad idea to do all that shopping on an empty stomach, so I decided to stop by the deli first and order an Italian combo sub with the works. A minute later, the gentleman behind the counter handed me a sandwich that could dent a car if you dropped it. The sub is on a freshly baked sesame-seed roll, stacked with a couple of inches of cooked ham, capicola, prosciutto, and fresh mozzarella cheese and topped with lettuce, black olives, tomatoes, and onions. I felt like I might need to unhinge my jaw to eat the sub. The bill came out to $6.95, and it ended up saving me at least $20 in the long run. After finishing this sandwich, it's hard to think about buying too much more from the market to bring home.
