Must-eat cheap Philly recs for a NYC hound

biscuitsngravy | Jan 9, 2008 06:29 PM

Greetings Philly hounds,

I'm going to be in your city (my first time!) Friday through Saturday and I'm looking for some must try food on the cheap.

I don't eat beef, so no Philly cheesesteaks for me, but I am a fan of the NY branch of Tony Luke's which introduced me to the wonders of the roast pork sandwich. I'm thinking of visiting the original Tony Luke's, but am wondering if there is a better roast pork sandwich that I should seek out. This would be a late night affair, so I don't think I'll be able to get to John's. Any other late night cheap munchies I should check out?

I will be staying in the vicinity of the convention center and based on some archived posts I read, I'm definitely going to visit the Reading Terminal Market. Any good recommendations there? I was thinking of getting breakfast at the Dutch Eating Place. Good call? What should I order there? Any treat worth bringing home for my friend who can't come? I won't be able to give it to her until Monday...

Can't wait to get to Philly!

Thanks!
