32. Southside Slopes sandwich
Fat Head’s Saloon (address and info)
Another entry in the ginormous sandwich category, the South Side Slopes sandwich is filed under the menu’s “Headwiches” category, aka sandwiches nearly the size of your head. Stuffed inside the bun are all the major Pittsburgh food groups: char-grilled kielbasa, onions, cheese, horseradish sauce -- and pierogi.
Groceria Italiana (address and info)
Grab a box of homemade ravioli from the freezer at this store in Pittsburgh’s Little Italy, and prepare them at home exactly as directed. The pillows of dough must be baked; the dough is so delicate that the pasta will break apart if boiled. Just like grandma used to make.
