The decline of the Italian Hoagie

daawgon | Oct 15, 2006 07:09 PM

Just came back from a few days in Philly, and I don't have too many good things to say about the hoagie scene! One would think the quality of hoagies in the vicinity of the Italian Market would be outstanding, but it seems that Philly hoagie makers dislike rain (or something) because when I went last week, Sarcone's was sold out, and the one I purchased from DiBruno's was substandard at best. I was also told that Primo's on Chestnut was outstanding, but I discovered otherwise. I must say that I was impressed by the quality of the mass-produced sandwich I got from WaWa in Horsham (I even got to play with their brand new Hoagie Computer!)

Maybe I'll have to try Ocean City next time I want a really good Italian hoagie?
