O-Bros’ Osteria

Location: SW 10th and Alder
Hours: Lunch, weekdays

The Story: A well made sandwich is my crutch. No matter where I am, I’m drawn to sandwiches in all forms. My g0-to is a tuna melt, yet every now and then, I treat myself to a good old fashioned sub. A new cart on SW 10th and Alder here in Portland has brought Italian subs to the eaters downtown. O-Bros’ Osteria is now open.

O-Bros’ Osteria opened in March in the corner cart right on 10th and Alder which has seen vendors over the years sell frozen yogurt, bagels and Asian cuisine. While some may think the cart or location is cursed, I think it needed the right vendor to wow us and O-Bros’ has done that. Having visited now three different times, I gotta say they offer up one of my favorite Italian style subs in town. The Classic Spicy, a sandwich I would put in my desert island package, starts with a toasted hoagie roll, mayo and mustard then layered with ham, salami, pepperoni and parm and topped with chopped lettuce, tomato, and onion. To finish off this masterpiece of Italian culinary genius, they throw in a handful of spicy chopped peppers. Each bite, an explosion of wondrous, gluttonous, delight. Layers of thinly sliced meats melded with the spicy pepper and a bit of mustard on each bite – delightful. I have returned for other sandwiches and each has a special place in my taste memory.
