Lil Nick's Deli
This South Philly corner spot is the kind of place that will make you fall in love with Philly sandwiches (aka, everything here is great). But it’s the roast pork sandwich we seek out to console us after an Eagles loss or any time we hear a rumbling in our stomachs. It combines slow-roasted, shredded pork loin, slightly crunchy broccoli rabe, and broken bits of provolone that kind of look like puzzle pieces. We suggest you go early because it’s the kind of place that can sell out any day of the week. Everyone knows that their small mountain of meat, cheese, and stewed veggies is more comforting than walking into a warm house on a 20-degree day.
