Greetings Chow Hounds!
So, I will be taking a trip to Philly the second weekend in August and will be there for 5 days and 4 nights. Being a foodie, I see this trip as a food exploration of the city. Any suggestions? Places we MUST go to?
I'll be going with my boyfriend and we'll be meeting up with some friends, so group oriented restaurants are definitely a possibility. I know for sure that I want to hit up a good sushi restaurant while I am there. My friend who lives in Philly says she's yet to find a great sushi place, and I would like to remedy that. Something that is worth the price. I've been reading about Vic Sushi, Makiman, and Fat Salmon on other boards.
Also, other than the sushi, I am on a budget (most meals $10, maybe one night I'll spend more like $25 other than at the sushi place). Any good lunch spots? Hidden jewels? Great ethnic restaurants? There is nothing I wont try and there's not a genre of food that I do not love.
