Searching for a Heavenly Roast Pork in Philly

I've heard before that while Philly is known for its cheesesteaks, the real prize in town is the roast pork sandwich, topped with provolone and broccoli rabe. Reader Michael Yoon explains:

"My favorite sandwich in Philly is not a cheesesteak at all but the roast pork sandwich at John's Roast Pork (where else?) with greens and sharp provolone. Get some long hots on the side too. Heaven. That is the sandwich that my wife and I dream about since we moved from Philly two years ago."

Reader HintonHelper "agrees 100%," and so for our second Philly poll we're asking you to vote on the best roast pork sandwich in town.


If your favorite isn't on the list, write it in in the "Other" section, and feel free to comment on why you voted for your choice.
