My Dream Sammich

This is the sammich of my dreams.
Here's what it looked like before I asked for an extra drunk in au jus :)

Italian roast pork sandwich with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe from DiNic's in Philly. Om nom nom times a million.

I know it doesn't look like much but after seeing this sandwich featured on an episode of Man Vs. Food, I knew I had to try it. The contrast of the sharp cheese and the bitter greens, the bun sopping with au jus, the melt in your mouth meat... ohhhh yessss. A total taste sensation.

Forget cheesesteaks, this is where it's at.
DiNic's is located inside the Reading Terminal, which is comparable to the St. Lawrence Market of Toronto. A whole bunch of places to eat and buy food, in a nutshell.
If you ever visit Philadelphia, this is a must-try! I think about it... often...


  1. Hmmm... I guess you have to try it to believe it. Somehow it doesn't do much for me right now.... Maybe someday I will visit Philadelphia....

  2. I liked the pic of M staring down the menu. I bet he had a hard time deciding :)

    Do you ever watch the show 'The Best Thing I Ever Ate' on the Food Network? Thats what your food related blogs remind me of. You could have your own show :)

  3. Yum!! I love sandwiches and that one looks so goooooood!
