this nyc chowhound is heading down to philly for just a day trip and would like suggestions on cheap eats. i'm looking for something i can't get in nyc...so maybe something along the lines of a philly cheesesteak or other local specialities would be best.
however, since i'm also taking the chinatown bus down from NYC (and will be relying on public transport), if anyone could suggest places that are not too far from this general area, i would greatly appreciate it:
1041 Race St (10th st)
Spruce and 8th st
i'll be in philly all day though, so i am also trying to do some historical sightseeing; if any good places are near independence hall/liberty bell area, i'm open to walking around.
thanks in advance!
