YAY PHILADELPHIA ARTICLES.
coconut milk dal!
blue ribbon brunch. it's ungodly expensive and no better than tons of the other brunch places that are half as snobby and half as expensive. and their bloody Marys are kind a of meh. also, momfuku milk bar. I don't like anything! I've tried the crack pie, the cereal milk ice cream, the truffles, and countless other stuff and it's all pretty underwhelming. meh.
sweet noodle kugel!
oh, and for dessert you MUST go to Capogiro on Sansom. It's the most amazing gelato you'll have outside of Italy with an amazing variety of flavors. i do believe that national geographic called it the best ice cream in the world. all the world. campari grapfruit and ciaccolato scuro are two of their best flavors.
you'll be in walking distance of tons of great restaurants! Raw sushi & Sake Lounge on Sansom is really close, Talula's Table is an amazing farm to table restaurant, El Vez is good mexican, Smoking Betty's has good bbq and drinks, Bellini Grill looks sort of cheesy but has amazing old-school italian red sauce food, Parc is great rustic french, Melagrano has delicious modern italian, i could go on for a long time. Kanella is byob and one of my absolute favorites, really fresh cypriot food (sort of a mix between middle eastern and greek). you would also do totally fine wandering up sansom or locust. i'm not a huge fan of philadelphia chinatown, especially if you're from somewhere like nyc with a better one.
yum! i was wondering why i couldn't find these in nyc! i'll have to make a trip home now to satisfy the craving :)
chili! a variation on the smitten kitchen version.
kandy kakes! either kind.
with mashed mint peas and hollandaise.
avocado. it was delicious!
capogiro in philly (technically gelato) has amazing/strange flavors.
is there anywhere in nyc to get the extra tasty squishy and oblong philadelphia soft pretzels?
