This new outpost of Wax Paper is in a Chinatown arcade, and it’s just as good as the tiny original in Frogtown. They have some familiar classics, like the almost-too-big-to-finish Italian sub and the panzanella salad - but there’s also a whole bunch of new stuff worth checking out. Like a turkey sandwich with an insane slaw that involves clementines and serrano peppers, a roast beef sandwich with pickled beets and French onion sauce, or a ham sandwich topped with walnuts. The space is significantly bigger than the sedan-sized first version, so you can go with a group and grab one of the tables in the hallway outside, or go alone and sit at the bar.
