Reading Terminal Market
I mentioned in my last post that we had beautiful weather over the weekend. Our family took advantage of it by taking a trip into the city.
Do you ever watch this guy?
He's on the Travel Channel and a while back he visited Philadelphia. On that show he went to the Reading Terminal Market and ate a world-famous broccoli-rabe pulled pork sandwich from DiNic's. Ever since that show I've been dying to go there and get one of those sandwiches.
RTM is a food-lover's paradise. Besides being a marketplace for fresh produce and flowers, it's open-air concept and clean surroundings make it a mecca for lovers of all different kinds of fare. Here's a peek inside.
Who you callin' crabby???
Of course you can't visit Philadelphia without seeing one of these.
But it wasn't a cheesesteak I was after.
The line for my sandwich wrapped around the entire restaurant. I was at least 50th in line and my wait was over an hour. But trust me, it was worth it for this mouth-wateringly delicious piece of pork heaven.
In fact, the man in front of me (we became friends after waiting in line) came all the way from New York just for this sandwich.
You don't think we left without getting dessert do you?
This is the famous Termini Bros. bakery. We took home some mini-cakes and cookies.
Not in the mood for food?
All-in-all I'd say it was a great day for the whole family. AND, it was Cole's first outing! Here he is with Daddy and big sister Amy.
Well, I hope you enjoyed your tour of the Reading Terminal Market in the City of Brotherly Love.
Have a wonderful week!!
