We're driving up on a last minute trip to spend the weekend with BF's family in Philadelphia (they're coming from South Carolina) and we're driving from D.C. area...
Anyhow--any quick recs--nothing fancy but MUST TRY places for first time visitors
We are staying in Cherry Hill, NJ (bf couldnt find a nice hotel in the Philadelphia downtown area it seems this weekend on last notice--is there some convention or something going on??)
however, we will be spending most of the day (Saturday and Sunday I think) in downtown Philadelphia or the city limits to see sights etc...
Definitely would like to have:
1. Cheesesteak (Phillies claim to fame in food, right?)
2. One nice meal--nothing over the top fancy and about 50-60 USD range per person
3. Some other places you think are homely favorites unique to Philadelphia's culture and city...
Only thing is--dont eat lamb, prefer Cuban over Mexican if thats a suggestion, love anything home cooked asian but dunno about Philadelphias chinatown or asian cuisines or which ones the city specializes in...love places with small plates too...
