phillyvoice.com – Attention, outside world: Philly has more to offer than its cheesesteaks.
Just ask Aramark, which plans to roll out a version of a popular South Philadelphia sandwich as part of its recently announced concession lineup for Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Feb. 4.
But fans planning to see the Eagles face the New England Patriots at U.S. Bank Stadium will not have the option of dining on an authentic Philly cheesesteak there.
Instead, those wanting a Philly fix will have to get it from a South Philly Roast Pork Sandwich, which some will argue is our city’s actual signature bite.
Aramark’s version will consist of Italian roast pork, sauteed broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. It’ll even come on an Amoroso roll, Billy Penn noted.
“We wanted to go beyond the obvious choices,” Aramark spokesperson David Freireich told the site.
MAN I AM SO JACKED UP FOR THE SUPERBOWL. Yes, because the home town team Philadelphia Eagles are in it, but for the Super Bowl Party Food. This year I will be watching at my brother’s house with maybe 1-3 other people. I am a football guy, I hate being bothered at the bar by stupid ass fans who don’t know dick about the sport, and cry wolf every time their qb gets touched. ITS FOOTBALL, there’s a penalty on every play, get over it, Nancy. Any way, I know I’m not the only one who is excited for the food as well. And whats great about this Super Bowl is that it puts2 of the most banging food towns up against one another. New England is notorious for insane seafood, lobsters, chowders, clams, scallops, etc, while Philly is known for its heavy hitting sandwiches like the cheesesteak and roast pork.
If you’re a real foodie, you will remember Adam Richman, and Man vs. Food did a best sandwich in America( http://eatasandwich.com/2012/08/14/recapping-the-best-sandwich-in-america-finale/), Spoiler alert, the winner was Philadelphia’s DiNic’ s Roast Pork Sandwich, New Englands Lobster Roll didn’t even make the cut. SO SUCK ON THAT NEW ENGLAND, WE BEAT YOU IN SANDWICHES, WE WILL BEAT YOU IN FOOTBALL TOO!!!
