Philly sandwich tour: What are the must eats?

kukubura | Jul 25, 2010 08:36 AM

A month or two ago I posted about Rick's Steaks being closed on a Sunday and the board directed us to Paesano's, which we haven't stopped talking about since. Next weekend we're coming up again but we're staying over night Sat-Sun and we're going to try to do a tour of awesome sandwiches. Since we'll probably share sandwiches at many places we'll be able to pack in a lot of stops! On our agenda so far are Rick's (for the vegetarian steak that I had years ago when I was a full-on vegetarian), probably Beck's Cajun in Reading Terminal Market, and the 10 Arts Lounge for some of their mini sanwiches, to try to see what an upscale sandwich looks like. We aren't big meat eaters but do eat seafood (and might eat a little meat if it's a can't miss) so fire away some suggestions!

We're intrigued by Sarcone's and Tony Luke's and are also really attracted to the whole food cart thing. What's the food cart scene like on the weekend? The philly food cart site seemed to have incomplete info. Mikey's looks like it has an awesome breakfast sandwich but I can't figure out if we'll be able to go there or not. What about the best Vietnamese banh mi sandwich?

Also, is there a killer sunday morning farmer's market with local appeal that we can hit on the way out of town? Or is Reading it? How's the farmer's market there?
