Hoagie Dom is serving up Philadelphia's hottest sandwich
I had an encounter with the most coveted sandwich in Philadelphia this past weekend.
What's happening: Hoagie Dom's monthly pop-up at Northern Liberties' Bardot Cafe — which I'd say is one of the best bars in our fair city — sold out of its sandwich allotment in 57 seconds last week.
- I was one of 50 folks who managed to grab a slot for his signature Calabrian chicken cutlet, which came piled high on a freshly-baked roll with Cooper Sharp (the greatest cheese on the planet), garlic aioli, arugula, pickled red onion and Grana Padano.
The verdict: It deserves the hype. This thing was a textural delight, and Hoagie Dom's homemade specialties (the roll and the cutlet) were incredible.
- Plus, the $35 gets you a pour of fantastic natural wine or two Miller High Lifes.
- And don't be scared by that price: This is a hoagie to be split between two people.
The big picture: Hoagie Dom is just one of Philly's brilliant culinary masterminds to make a pandemic-era splash on Instagram. (See also: KP's Fine Meats, 1-900-ICE-CREAM, Her Place Supper Club and Freelance Pizza — among many others.)
