Forget Pat’s and Geno’s. We all know that South Philadelphia’s food culture encompasses much more than just cheesesteaks.
The area is home to a vibrant mix of ethnic communities and it is only apropos that South Philadelphia’s gastronomical offerings reflect that. From homestyle Vietnamese dishes to Middle Eastern shawarma straight off a vertical spit, it’s pretty easy to get a taste of the world from the many ethnic (and authentic) restaurants in the area.
