Here's an excerpt from Michael Stern's review of John's Roast Pork in Philadelphia: "John's roast pork is one of Philadelphia's culinary treasures, made from "Pop Pop's original recipe," cooked and boned on premises. The slices of pale, sweet meat are shockingly tender, forked from a drippy trough and piled into a superb Carangi Bakery seeded roll, then preferably supplemented by clumps of spinach sautéed in olive oil with plenty of garlic."

There's only one problem: they close after lunch. Problem solved, because as of March 17, some of John's menu, including the roast pork, will be available at the nearby Mick Daniel's Saloon after John's Roast Pork closes for the day. The saloon is located at 2044 South 2nd Street.
