Philly Dining Picks for Toronto Tourists

wontonfm | Jan 30, 2011 04:38 PM

Hello all --

I'll be in Philly at the end of the month (February) and have been compiling my food picks. Would love to get some thoughts on my current picks and also some additional ideas.

I'm going with my mom who is pretty open to different foods (although she won't do Chinese) so various types of cuisine are up for consumption but she's more into simple foods (I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum, will try it all). We generally want to avoid very expensive meals and plan on spending about $25 ish per entree at dinnertime.

We won't have a car and will depend on public transit. We're staying near Penn's Landing.

I think I have a decent list of restaurant thus far (culled from Chowhound, friends, NY Times etc) but am finding that I don't have any "snack" places to try. Any good bakeries, chocolate shops, coffee shops with good treats, ice cream etc on the Philly scene?

Thanks in advance for your help. Here's what the list is looking like thus far...

SATURDAY
Dinner (we get in at 9pm and will want something quick)
Jim's Steaks

SUNDAY
Brunch
Deciding between ... Distrito, Garces Trading Co, Cafe Estelle and Green Eggs

Dinner
Supper

MONDAY
Breakfast
Dutch Eating Place (Reading Terminal)

Lunch
Deciding between... Sahara Grill or El Rey or JG Domestic

Dinner
Barbuzzo

Also considering Chifa but not too sure...
