Phillywise, Sabooor and Penang are supooor and perfect

Michael Penfield | Jul 26, 2001 12:26 PM

Just returned from Philly and one of my dining highlights was Sabooor, a place across the street from the US customs house near the historic district which serves up food primarily from the Dominican Republic. The lunch special, pork tenderloin with a tomato based sauce, assorted vegetables, rice with corn, and salad was just the right size, the pork being tender as the word tenderloin should suggest. The mango nectar I ordered was refreshing.

Penang, in Chinatown near Arch and 10th St. serves Malaysian cuisine. I started with roti stuffed with egg and reddish onions and a side of chicken and potatoes in a curry broth. The entree, which took a while to arrive, perhaps because I ordered it boneless, was chicken with julienned carrots, ginger and scallions in a tasty sauce, with rice of course. Makes me want to visit Philly again.
