I am planning a trip to philly and was wondering does anyone have reviews on the restraunts there?
Thanks as always to my fellow Chowheads.
We really enjoy Espresso Cafe in North Philadelphia. The owner,Sharon, truly aims to please. He is especially good at aiming to please children. My 9 yr old has loved his food. We go whenever we get to Philadelphia. Yi Tsi Peking in Bala Cynwyd is very good. There is also a dairy place in Bala Cynwyd that used to be in Great Kosher Restaurants. It was pretty good. Mama's Vegetarian in downtown Philadelpia on s. 20 st has very good falafel. Friends of mine liked Maccabeem on S. 12 St in downtown Philadelphia. It is a meat Israeli place.
There is a good dairy place in Bala Cywyd called Cafe Shira. It is at 134 Bala Avenue . We went last summer and enjoyed .
Lin Glatt in Cherry Hill NJ is pretty good. I hear the lunch special (weekdays only) is a real steal. Mama's vegetarian has great falafel in fluffy homemade pita bread (get it with the eggplant spread). New Harmony is my favorite of the kosher vegetarian Chinese places, but Kingdom of vegetarians is also good, especially their dim sum (not sure if the hashgachah is conservative on these two). The take-out fried chicken at the Acme in Narberth is very good. Thank you.
I like the Acme fried chicken but it is no where near as good as Kosher Bites in Baltimore. IMO that is the very best I have ever eatten ANYWHERE! (kosher or not) It is honestly worth the drive.
Yi Tsi Peking is also very good! MMMMMMMMM Gotta go there again soon!
Wanted to report on my trip
Mamas Veg was very good. everything is made by them including the whole wheat pita
Max and David's was excellent. Much better selection than any place here in NY.
got to their website and see.
Was not inpresed at all with Holy Land grill.
Rita ices is definitley something to try. Its like a thicker slurpee with pieces of fruit in it.
Thanks again for your help.
