At this little corner sandwich shop in Belmont-Craigin, owner Carl Drase and his crew launch a fleet of soups, salads, and subs ("torpedoes" in Jersey parlance). The sammies, though sent out in smooshy rolls ("Easier for kids and older customers to chew," says Drase), carry high-quality ingredients in inventive combinations, almost a different species of chow than youd get at franchise shops. The namesake Torpedo has a lot going on, with ham, salami, pepperoni, and American and Swiss cheese; the Italian features paisano faves gabagool (i.e., capicola), Genoa salami, mortadella, and provolone with a slight splash of oil. Better even than the sandwiches are house-made soups: we enjoyed a creamy broccoli with fresh flowerets floating in a mildly rich broth; minestrone had a pleasant herbaceousness and generous chunks of beef, and smoked red pepper soup packed considerable zing. At $1.99 a cup they're all a very good value, as are the subs, which start at $3.25 and top out at $6.95 for a 12-incher. Torpedo's is now offering salads and homemade desserts as well. Drase takes understandable pride in his work (there's no tip jar because he feels them unseemly, but we duked 'em anyway because the folks here are so damn nice).
