Usually the word “hoagie” brings to mind a cardboard roll stuffed with mystery meat and smothered in hot peppers to mask any offending flavors. But LaSpada’s beauts redeem the term and in fact bring glory to it. Each ingredient of these distinctively constructed sandwiches is top-quality, from the imported Canadian ham to the freshly sliced vine-ripened tomatoes. The classic Italian Special features ham, Genoa salami, capicola and provolone and is topped with tomatoes, lettuce, onions, pickles, sweet or hot peppers, oil and vinegar and a sprinkling of dried oregano. After the roll has been stuffed, a final blanket of meat is placed over the top, its edges tucked in to resemble a well-made bed. So how did a hoagie so authentic end up in South Florida? Owners Harry and Gale Kappes have been running the operation since 1977, when they absorbed their hoagie know-how from the store’s original owners, the LaSpadas of Chester, Pennsylvania.
