Quick, name the top five cities in the world for great food!
What did you come up with? New York? Paris? Hong Kong? London? San Francisco? Madrid? Singapore?
What about Philadelphia? Did you know that Philly is a whole lot more than brash sports fans and cheez-whiz filled sandwiches? Did you know that Philly has arguably the richest history of any city in the States? Did you know that Philly's restaurants are consistently ranked among the nation's best? UPDATE: The January 2004 issue of Saveur magazine lists Philadelphia as the most underrated food town in America.
History, culture, dining, people.
Philadelphia has it all. It's cutting edge with an old-school, blue collar attitude. You'll come to see Independence Hall and you'll be surprised by Society Hill. You'll come for South Philly's Little Italy and you'll get Chinatown to boot.
You'll come for cheesesteak and you'll dine on the finest French food outside of the Left Bank. In short, Philly is more than you expect.
I moved to Philly in July of 2004 and I'm loving it so far, but even before moving here, it was one of the cities I knew best since I had visited approximately 35 times since 1995.
My buddy Tom, who happens to be or Korean descent, hasn't steered me wrong so far when I let him choose the restaurant... more travel advice
This place is not exactly authentic Mexican fare, but it's tasty and cheap. Inside you'll find local artwork displayed... more travel advice
