The slow-roasted porchetta sandwich from Porcos is one of the best things you can eat in Philadelphia right now. We realize that’s a big statement, but we believe it as much as we know that the world is round, or that Ryan Gosling is too attractive to actually be from Canada. The pork is tender and salty, and comes served on crispy, house-made ciabatta. The menu at the small Washington Avenue bakery is mostly variations on the porchetta sandwich, with standouts like a Cubano with pickled vegetables and the “Spicy Porker” with a long hot relish. The space also has a big case of baked goods which are all solid (especially the chocolate chip cookie sandwich), but you’re here for the meat.
