At the heart of Reading Terminal Market, there exists a magical land of roast beef and roast pork. Surrounded by a swarm of hungry patrons, the line for DiNic's, which has been there since 1982, typically meanders around several of the other vendors' stalls. But don't be put off by what appears to be an endless wait—the roast pork sandwich is worth waiting for.


It comes in several configurations, but there's really no wrong way of doing it. Sitting inside a foot-long hoagie roll are slices of freshly cut provolone hidden beneath layers and layers of tender, succulent roast pork. Topped with sweet peppers and/or greens, either way you'll savor every bite of this sandwich. At under $10, you might want to consider grabbing a second, for when that craving inevitably hits a few hours later.
