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.
Trey Popp calls Fishtown’s Soup Kitchen the best thing to happen to lunch all year.
Soup Kitchen’s sandwiches are two- and three-day productions. The pulled pork is bright with apple and cabbage slaw and jalapeño aioli. A walnut pesto bumps the goat cheese, avocado and arugula into contention for best vegetarian sandwich in town. Tomato-thyme mayo? Who ever thought a meatloaf-and-bacon sandwich could be improved on? And floating atop the soups are touches like roasted tomato oil (on the best cucumber soup of the summer) and nutmeg mousse (on a carrot-orange soup that, sadly, I missed).
