The Best Thing I Ever Ate: Philly Edition

BelgianBeerMistress | Mar 25, 2011 06:47 PM

Ok, so I'm doing some restaurant research of New Orleans since my husband and I are going early June for a trip (hooray!). And there was this thread: Best Thing I Ever Ate: New Orleans. It was such a cool way to read about the restaurants worth visiting, as well as the specific dishes they ate as kids or adults.

So....what are the best dishes you ever ate in Philly?

I have to start it off thusly...

Best Burger: Village Whiskey. Get the duck fat fries with the Sly Fox sauce and DUNK YOUR BURGER IN IT.

Best cheesesteak: John's Roast Pork

Best dessert: Creme Brulee, Valanni, New Years Eve menu

Best Salad: Belgian Endive Salad, Blue In Green (sadly closed now)

Best Pasta: Tagliatelle (or is it Papardelle?) with Mushrooms and Pecorino, Melograno

Best Iced Tea: El Rey Sol (little mexi place on South Street years ago)

Best Ice Cream: Bassett's Cinnamon

Ok, I could go on...

Your turn!
