No discussion of the eating habits of Philadelphians would be complete without sandwiches. Here, our suggestions for five of the best sandwiches in hoagie-loving Philadelphia.
Five Philadelphia Sandwiches that Go Beyond the Classics
House Breakfast Sandwich at Soup Kitchen Café
Eggs, aged cheddar, roasted tomatoes, grilled asparagus and prosciutto, on brioche. Kensington
Porchetta Sandwich at Restaurant Alba
Slow-roasted porchetta, tangy caper sauce, and a sprinkle of breadcrumb salsa. Malvern
Kentucky Klassic Biscuit Sandwich at the Headhouse Farmers’ Market
Benton’s country ham, pimento cheese, house pickles and hot sauce, on chef Mitch Prensky’s house-made biscuits. The sandwich is so good that it inspired Prensky to work on launching his own Scratch Biscuits food cart. Old City
The Overboard at Ippolito’s Seafood
Fried flounder topped with coleslaw, french fries, and tartar and hot sauces, on sliced country bread. South Philly
