One of our favorite spots in Philadelphia is Reading Terminal Market and we go there just to eat our heart out. This market is definitely an icon in Philadephia. Every time we go back home in Pennsylvania, going here is a-must for us. Its a one-stop shop to cure our Philly cravings. Brock and I always get to play tourist in our own city and we just absolutely love it. We still discover new things in this city every time we go.
THE BEST PORK SANDWICH (YET)
You seldom see DiNic's empty. When you go here during lunch time, the line is so long especially on weekends. You will at least wait for about 20-30 minutes to get the best Roast Pork sandwich of your life. You can also get their Roast Beef but we usually order Roast Pork with Peppers and Provolone - a true symphony of flavors on your mouth.
If you like a different type of sandwich go to Hershel's East Side Deli. They usually serve kosher-style food. You will see them prepare your sandwich - whatever your choice would be, from delicious pastrami, brisket, corned beef, turkey - hand-carved on the spot when you order. They also have good chicken liver salad and white fish.
And if there is room for dessert, stop by at Termini Brothers, been in business since 1921 and get their famous Cannoli or Sfogliatelle. If you are not Italian, you probably won't know what a Sfogliatelle is. Its a shell-shape Italian pastry covered in thin flaky goodness. Thank God for their delicious and perfect light ricotta filling of a cannoli. This is by far the best cannoli we have tasted in our entire lives, and we've been to Italy.
CREAMIEST ICE CREAM EVER
Bassett's is an institution in Philadelphia. It is America's oldest ice cream company and been in business since 1861. It is the creamiest ice cream you have the chance of eating and they have all the flavors that suits your cravings, even weird ones. The ice cream is just a wonderful treat with its rich and creamy flavor. You may not need dinner if you eat it on a late afternoon.
