We went all the way to Philadelphia and DIDN'T get a Philly Cheesesteak.
And get this...we went to the Reading Terminal which is a neat collection of markets, kinda like a daily farmers' market. When we first entered there was this really looong line of tourists waiting at a Philly Cheesesteak stand.
Then we overheard one of the workers talking at another market stand (specializing in fresh local produce) mentioning a much better food stand deeper in. So we decided to check it out and boy were we glad we did!
DeNic's served up simple, fresh roast beef, roast pork, pulled pork, or steak on rolls dipped in au jus. These two sandwiches--the roast beef and roast pork-- must have weighed in at 5 lbs!
These sandwiches were the only meal of the entire day and we went to bed full! Secret Agent Man was so happy. Secret Agent Man was especially happy about the super sharp provolone in his sandwich. It really added a whole new dimension--you must try!
