Looking for a critique of my Philly food itinerary

cocobinga | Aug 13, 2011 06:19 AM

Yes, I have an itinerary a few months in advance; I am a food nerd.

I humbly ask for your help and suggestions because I am pretty torn on a few choices.

Monday: Breakfast of champions at Dim Sum Garden 10:30 or 11:00am. Wander around Chinatown sampling things. Nan Zhou Hand Drawn Noodle House looks like a winner. Rangoon for Burmese cuisine. Chef’s tasting at Han Dynasty, 7:00pm sharp, $25. BYOB.

Tuesday: Morimoto’s for lunch at 11:30am. Yakitori Boy for drinks and karaoke later that night.

Wednesday: Reading Terminal Market around 8 or 9am. Dutch Eating Place, DiNic’s, Sang Kee Peking Duck, Salumeria, etc. Zahav that night for the mesibah at 6:15pm, $45 per person.

Thursday: Brunch at Kanella (BYOB) around 11:00am and then Capogiro Gelato. Dinner at Modo Mio, 4-course turista menu, $34. BYOB.

I plan on going to Paesano's at some point and Argan Moroccan for a lamb sandwich. I am wondering if Vetri is worth it now that it is tasting menu only - I would also have to go alone. I have never been to Philly before and I am not sure when I will return. I have assembled this from sole internet research.

I thank you for your time!
