A great spot for a quick bite (perhaps a first date too). It’s casual. It’s consistent, and the hummus toppings are endless.
I recommend heading over on Sunday for the Shakshuka special. Prepare to let your inner carbivore run wild… because the house-made focaccia and pita are delicious.
Whether you’re jonesing for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a small snack, Front Street Cafe has your back.
Between the Blueberry Bread Pudding, Buffalo Cauliflower, and Blueberry-Chocolate “Cheesecake,” this place has me craving its food every minute of every day (my boyfriend and family will attest).
Cedar Point Bar and Kitchen is another Fishtown favorite. It’s a great little hub for burgers (regular/veg) and brews, but especially for exotic items like Tomato Po’boys, Cauliflower Fritters with peanut butter collard greens (don’t knock it ’til ya try it), and Buffalo “Wings.”
Also, try the Brussel Sprouts.
Basically try the entire menu.
If you find yourself in Rittenhouse Square, mosey over to VStreet. The Korean-Fried Tempeh Tacos are personal favorite, I recommend tackling this place tapas-style and trying everything. VStreet is endlessly rotating the menu and pushing an eclectic happy hour.
Zahav is arguably one of Philly ‘s best restaurants. If the restaurant experience is just as important to you as the food, then this put this place at the top of your “To-Eat” list. The Salatim is out of this world.
Pro Tip: If you don’t want to wait for reservations, go in on a weekday and request the Chef’s Table. You’ll generally get a seat within the half hour, not to mention an upfront view of the kitchen. Mike Solmonov, the owner, is generally cooking. If he catches you watching, he’ll come out to greet you #fangirled.
