No trip to Philly’s historic Reading Terminal Market, one of America’s finest food halls, is complete without grabbing a stool at DiNic’s and indulging in one of their insanely delicious roast pork sandwiches. It’s been a standby at the market since 1980, but its history dates back to 1918, when Gaetano Nicolosi opened a butcher shop in South Philly; the shop is still run by the Nicolosi family to this day.
To call this sandwich an icon would be an understatement. Many Philadelphians will tell you that they’d take a roast pork sandwich over a cheesesteak any day of the week, and that DiNic’s is THE place to try it. Slow-roasted Italian-seasoned pork, sliced impossibly thin, dunked into rich jus and piled into a roll from historic Philly bakery Sarcone’s along with garlicky broccoli rabe and sharp provolone… this is the definitive Philly-style roast pork sandwich, and it’s so good that it was crowned “The Best Sandwich in America” by the Travel Channel! Millions have made a pilgrimage to DiNic’s over the years to try this legendary sandwich, and now it’s shipping direct to your door!
