If you are looking for flavors that liven up your mouth like a festival, try Dansavann Laos Cafe in Olney. The owner, Danny, brings his Laotian and Thai heritage to the menu and is happy to guide you to some winning dishes while sharing his own experiences and travels. We had sticky rice, beef jerky, nam kao (rice, vegetables, and meat), seafood stew, Laos papaya salad, and duck laab. The duck was not a particular favorite, but we were very pleased with everything else. Presentation is lovely, with lots of lettuce, fresh herbs, and colorfulness. The restaurant is right across the street from the Olney train station (not the Olney Transportation Center).

5419 N. Mascher Street, Philadelphia, Pa

A few blocks away, the North Fifth Street Revitalization Project has developed some self-guided food tours. On North 5th Street you can find restaurants and foods with the flavors of Korea, Vietnam, China, Haiti, Jamaica, Trinidad, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, and Colombia along the mile and a half long corridor.

In particular, the cheesy bread and guava pastry at the Colombian bakery are my favorite!

And, you are not that far away from Cafe Soho for Korean chicken wings and beer. We brought a friend over the summer and we were pleasantly surprised that it was a hip and happening destination right in our own neighborhood!
