Pork Sandwich Roundup in Chester County. Best Pork.

Ahhh. The pork sandwich. Do you guys in other parts of the country have it? Here are a few of my favorites in Chester County Pa.


This one above is my favorite. It's from Luigi and Giovanni's in Newtown Square. They only serve it on Sunday's. A whole pig is roasted over night. Then the meat is put into a great sesame seed coated roll with provolone cheese and long hots. Dear Jesus is this thing good. I usually eat it in my car on the way home while listening to Sunday's with Sinatra. And my brow sweats from the heat of the long hots. And if you go there you have to get it with an ice cold Coca Cola.


And what do we have here? (above). This is a pork sandwich from Primo Hoagies in Exton, Pa. It's a cold hoagie with pork deli meat. Provolone and long hots. And a great roll! I prefer the hot pork sandwiches but this one is pretty good.


And lastly is this guy. The hot pork sandwich at Rocco's Pizza in Exton Pa. Roasted pork, provolone and long hots. This is tasty but not great. The roll is average and they broil it a bit to melt the cheese. Plus they only give you one long hot per side as opposed to Luigi and Giovanni's. Either way, it's still better than most cheese steaks you can get around here.

The pork sandwich, as you describe, doesn't really exist here. Shame. In NYC we have the Vietnamese pork sandwich, but that's a different sammy altogether.

Is there a version by you that serves the pork sandwich hot with provolone and broccoli rabe? I saw that on television once and it looked delish!

BE Earl - yes. That's traditionally how it's served. When I get it like that I add horseradish but I think it's better with the long hots instead of rabe.

And the place you're probably talking about is DiNics at the Reading Terminal Market in Philly. My hands down favorite.
