We are talking All About Hoagies on our latest episode of Dining On A Dime.
First, we heard from Chef Gene Blum on the history of the hoagie and it’s origins in Philadelphia. We then spoke with COO Eric Bonner from Primo Hoagies and found out where the franchise started, and how they use the highest quality ingredients to make every bite you eat a consistent and delicious experience. Of course we emphatically agree as we were treated to Primo Hoagies Bada Bing, Turkey and Cheese, Italian, and Ham and Cheese hoagies in our studio! And for everyone listening, be sure to stay tuned to find out about the great deals you can get from any Primo Hoagies locations using their app to celebrate National Hoagie Day on May 5th!

We also had Michael Tuono who is the owner and chef behind TN Homemade Kitchen as well as Jeet food truck who brought in some of his newest culinary creations–the Phried Hoagie. Yes, we say PHried because this is a Philly-based delicacy created by a Philadelphia native. Find them online at tnhomemadekitchen.com
Lastly, we heard from Banh Mi and Bottles Owner, Tuan Phung, as he discussed the popular Vietnamese Hoagie: Banh Mi. So as we took bites of the delightful Braised Pork Belly Banh Mi hoagie, we learned when Banh Mi’s were created, as well as how they are made. Online at banhmiandbottles.com
