Apparently, This Fish Hoagie Is One of the Most Popular Sandwiches in Philly

Because tomorrow is “National Sandwich Day” (which, to be clear, isn’t a real holiday), UberEATS released its list of the most popular sandwiches on its platform — meaning, the ten sandwiches people ordered most in 2017. It’s not an especially interesting list, nor a surprising one (in that it’s absolutely dominated by cheesesteaks), except for a few factors:

  1. You people love McDonald’s. The mega-chain made up 20% of a lot that was otherwise made up of strictly Philly-based establishments. The McChicken, which rolled in at #1, beat out a goddamn Pat’s cheesesteak. And the Filet o’ Fish (the Filet o’ Fish!) took #7.
  2. There’s apparently a fish hoagie in this city that we all need to start eating.

Here’s the full list:

  1. McChicken (McDonald’s)

  2. Cheesesteak (Pat’s King of Steaks)

  3. Cheesesteak (Joe’s Steaks + Soda Shop)

  4. Cheesesteak (Oregon Steaks)

  5. Regular Cheesesteak (Larry’s Famous Steaks)

  6. The Classic Cheesesteak (Chickie’s & Pete’s)

  7. Filet o Fish (McDonald’s)

  8. The Southern Sandwich (Wishbone)

  9. Philly Cheesesteak or Chicken Philly (Wit or Witout)

  10. Fish Hoagie (Sister Muhammad’s Kitchen)

Take a look at #10. On a list made up of some of the city’s and country’s biggest names, in comes Sister Muhammad’s Kitchen — a Germantown Avenue stalwart for nearly 20 years — with its mammoth Muslim fish hoagie built up with fried whiting, cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomato, and pickles.

What a sleeper hit. Try it for yourself Sunday-Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday till 9 p.m., and till 10 p.m. on weekends.
