Tommy DiNic’s (Philadelphia, PA)
51 North 12th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107
Tommy DiNic’s is in Reading Terminal Market, a huge hall with a broad variety of food stores in downtown Philadelphia. It is one of the main attractions of the market, as Tommy DiNic’s roasted pork sandwich has been elected “Best Sandwich in America” by the Travel Network. They serve roasted beef and pork as well as some Italian staples: meatballs and sausages. All on big “hoagies” (the local term for a long, soft, white bun).
I get the Italian Pulled Pork ($11): a huge sandwich, cut in half, with heaps of pulled pork and broccoli rabe. Everything is very fresh, the pulled pork is tender and juicy, and the rabe gives it an edge. It is very good but not as good as the hype.
Really good pulled pork sandwich but definitely not one of the best sandwiches in the US.
