Primanti Brothers is the true taste of Pittsburgh!  With over 20 mega-sized sandwiches on the menu, one of the best is The Cap & Egg.  The sandwich is loaded capicola, coleslaw, a runny egg, tomatoes and a handful of hand-cut fries in between hand sliced Italian bread.

Inside Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market, Tommy DiNic’s roast pork and beef creations are culinary masterpieces.  The Roast Pork Sandwich consists of slow roast pork, aged provolone, roasted peppers and greens and is dripping with juice.

Katz’s has been New York’s most famous deli since 1888, recreating the flavors of the Old World.  Katz’s Corned Beef and Pastrami Sandwich is smoked to juicy perfection and the meat is hand carved to your specifications.  This New York staple is typically eaten on rye bread with mustard but Richman’s favorite way to eat this sandwich is with Russian dressing and coleslaw
