Casual Lunch in Center City???
Meeting a friend for lunch in Center City. Coming in by train. (Market East or Suburban Station area) Need to keep cost down(15.00 or less/person), but would prefer a place to sit and talk as well. Suggestions...???
Chinatown is a good bet. There are so many good places and most offer special inexpensive lunch specials. A few that come to mind that I love and are good for sitting and talking are Ong's for excellent Vietnamese and Chinese food, CK garden for Szechuan food, Rangoon for Burmese cuisine (an especially nice dining room).
A good bet would be the Marathon Grill. I like the location at 18th and Market St. because they have a large outdoor seating area. You need to get there early (before 12:15) to be assured of a table.
