August 7, 2010
We were looking for a late lunch on this beautiful Saturday afternoon and decided to make a quick run over to Mike's Deli on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. We have been to Arthur Avenue many times but never noticed Mike's, which has received a lot of attention since his eggplant parmigiana throwdown with Bobby Flay. Mike's is located inside the Arthur Avenue Retail Market and was the center of attention on this day (my guess is its the main draw every day.). We ordered an eggplant hero and a prosciutto and mozzarella hero - both made with Mike's fresh, homemade mozzarella. i would say this parm hero could easily hold up to the now defuct Corona Pork Store's version, which, in my opinion was one of the best ever, I guess its all about the fresh mozzarella and mike's had plenty of it.
