40 minutes drive away from West PHilly?

Forgive me for these dumb challenges. OUr battery is low; dealer recommended we drive for about 40 minutes. Where in Western Suburbs or South Jersey is there a destination restaurant up for our goal?

Any ethnic except Mexican or Indian would be fine. Hubby is not a chowhound, likes lighter fare. OUr goal is the drive more than a fancy lunch, but I'm supposed to come up with a goal.

In 15 minutes yet! Help!!

  1. i may be too late for your needs, but collingswood would do the trick. the tortilla press is yummy and people like the diner/shake/grilled cheese okace there....

    1. haha, sorry i missed this! my first thought would have been a taste of india's lunch buffet in devon.

          d'oh. my reading skills were not so sharp earlier apparently!
          where'd you end up?

      2. Thanks for your suggestions all. We wound up at Fujis in Haddonfield! Hubby knew I loved eating there, and suggested it himself. Because I am going there for an Omikase dinner on Wed. with a friend, I ordered "light", off the regular lunch menu.

        Hubby had chicken cutlet with tasty accomaniments; I had a bento box with a tuna roll, a piece of salmon and another of tuna sushi, a neat bowl of shrimp and veggies tempura, salad--all for $12.50. No special attention for a 'regular' customer--it was a neat lunch, and I enjoyed it a lot. Hubby enjoyed my salad, as it was too much for me to finish.
