Hi guys

Any recommendations on your favorites in Reading Terminal? Looking for some new and unusual things to try there. Thanks.

    At the Reading Terminal Market the best bets are pancakes and scrapple at the Dutch Eating Place, and for lunch the roast pork sandwich with provolone and greens at DiNic's. Also try a soft pretzel at Fisher's, and sample the Italian pastries at Termini's, especially the nirvanas and almond soucees. Bassett's has vey good ice cream too and if you're still hungry, Bleiler's amish bakery has very good apple fritters and cinnamon buns. The thai place has a very good salmon lunch special too.

      Sorry I don't remember the name, but you have to get a pretzel from the Amish pretzel place. The Dutch Eating place is supposed to be awesome, but we had blueberry pancakes and potatoes and weren't too impressed with either.

        There is nothing bad in the Reading Terminal. Just remember to feed the pig.

            Terminis has amazing amaretto horseshoe cookies. They have a light amaretto flavor, are crispy on the outside, soft inside and have dark chocolae dipped on the ends. Mmmmmm...

              I like the poached eggs with lancaster co. fried scrapple for breakfast at the down home diner.

              The middle eastern place is good too.

                Salumerias - Italian hoagie with everything. Make sure you get a lot of napkins...not so new or unusual, but really tasty.
