Restaurants in Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia’s best-known signature dish is the cheese steak. Styles differ dramatically. Traditional steaks are made with thin flaps of meat; a popular alternative is to hack the meat into hash along with onions on the griddle. Then there’s the cheese issue: Whiz or provolone? Wit’ or wit’out (onions)? Cousin to the cheese steak is the roast pork sandwich: butter-tender sweet meat, frequently complemented by clumps of spinach sauteed in olive oil and garlic. Beyond cheese steaks and roast pork, city specialties include soft pretzels, hot-sausage sandwiches topped with pepper hash, and cool Italian ice. The Famous Fourth Street Deli is one of the great remaining kosher-style delis in the east, its specialties including piled-high corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, matzoh ball soup, and all kinds of smoked fish.
