John’s Roast Pork – South Philadelphia, PA
I love Philadelphia’s staple foods from soft pretzel, scrapple, cheesesteaks, and pork sandwich. Well named finalist on Travel Channel’s Best Sandwich in America by Andrew Zimmern, and Best Sandwich by Adam Richman, and best pork sandwich by Serious Eats, John’s Roast Pork (JRP) is already well known. Do I need to add my two cents? Not really. The owner of JRP John Bucci Jr has appeared on my show “Small Bites Radio” and is a great guy and a spokesperson for the charity “Be the Match” that provides marrow transplants in the United States from volunteer unrelated donors. JRP has been around since the 1930’s so that alone tells you they know what they are doing. What would I have? The roast pork with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe, and it was FABOLOUS! So if in the area, be sure to stop by and have one of Philadelphia’s tastiest sandwiches around. You will thank me later.
