East Coast Trip - Philly 5

After we left liberty bell, we went to Little Hut where is famous for Philadelphia style Hoagies. This is the place we NEEDED to come. The sign said "Sandwich Construction Company. We build sandwiches." and they don't lie. Their sandwiches are serious...seriously good.
リバティーベルを後にしてついたのはフィラデルフィアスタイルのホギーが有名なLittle Hut。看板には「サンドイッチ建設会社。サンドイッチを建ててます。」 なんて、おもしろいことが書いてある。いや、それだけマジに作っているのですよ。だからマジにおいしいよ。

Little Hut
241-A East Chester Pike
Ridley Park 19078

There are no tables inside so need to get them to go. I like this old style price list on the wall. Steven is saying. "He is buying." Thanks, Dad!

This is THE Hoagie. Layers of paper thin sliced ham, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, vinegar, peppers, and olive oil on a good texture bun. We ordered a big size and spilt into three. The other one is Philadelphia famous cheese steak. It got sauteed thin beef, onion, mushroom and melted cheese. The meat is juicy and it soaked into the bread...Ohhh, we have been waiting for this since our last visit...for 1.5 years.

We found one picnic table right out side of the shop so we took it! Had a Philadelphia chips but this flavor was too salty. お店の外にピクニックテーブルがひとつあったので、そこでいただきました。地元のポテトチップも試してみましたが、このフレーバーはちょっと塩分が強すぎで、残念賞。

Loved the ham in the Hoagie because they are not too salty or greasy. Perfect with oil & vinegar. They came from this deli meat company. You gotta use this brand. ホギーのハムは塩辛くも脂っぽくもなくマイルド。だからオリーブオイルとビネガーによく合います。このハム/ソーセージ会社から来ているのね。このブランドじゃなきゃダメよ!...と言っているところ。

This sandwich shop is in Steven's old neighborhood so we stopped at the house he grow up in. This is also a big house. Must have been comfortable living there with even 5 people. 実はこのサンドイッチ屋さんはStevenが子供のころに住んでいたエリアにあります。それじゃ生家を見に行こうか。この家も大きいなあ。家族5人がゆったり住めそうです。

Now this is the slope he was sledding in winter. The red arrow shows his sleighing course. Notice the car on the crossing road. It is a pretty busy road and when he and his friends turned sharp to the right, they almost got hit by car....many times. Boys...
