No, we’re not talking about those funky, plastic-wrapped grinders in the local Cumby cooler. If you’re on a mission for one of the best subs in the state, get to HUDSON MARKET, an ol-skool corner store on the West End which has been in business for more than 85 years. Call ahead at lunchtime and avoid the 30-minute wait, although the reward is worth it. A large sub is basically a giant loaf of Italian bread stuffed with you-name-it, including 10 cheeses to tempt (including Havarti dill and horseradish cheddar), so order it “gutted” and spare yourself a few extra carbs. From the homemade chicken salad to the veggie sub with avocado and sprouts to the liverwurst, it’s all good and served with a smile. And whatever you do, go for the marinated green olives. Grab a sack of Funyuns and an Orangina and hit the adjacent park for an impromptu picnic.
