Philly opinion from Jersey chow hounds ?

Going to Philly next month and looking to eat in center or south Philly. Have any favorites?

Thanks much!

  1. My wife and I went to Philly not long ago and at at Meme, I thought it was wonderful.

    1. Barclay Prime's 20oz dry aged ribeye. Best I've ever had. Been to most of NYC and Chicago's finest and BP really surprised me.

      Another fave is Supper. We had a great dinner there with another couple. Grazed through a lot of the menu, sharing everything!

      1. Any self-respecting food geek visiting Philadelphia need make time to go to the Reading Terminal Market. Roast pork, provolone & greens is my favorite, but there is almost too much deliciousness under that roof!

        1. Pick up pizza and stromboli from Caccia's on 16th and Ritner in South Philly for the freezer at home.

            Cacia's stromboli is good, but I like it better at Carangi's on Oregon Ave. near 12th St.

          2. I used to really like the fish and octupus at Dmitri's, but i haven't been there in a few years.

            My friends have been raving about Morimoto jealous I haven't been! :(

            And of course there's the cheesesteaks....
