My colleague, Eliot, kindly e-mailed a few more places to try:
- “Bui’s” — a food truck parked at the corner of 38th and Spruce. Apparently their egg combo sandwiches are popular with the students here.
- “Koch’s Deli” — a Jewish deli at 43rd and Locust, run by the same family for 30 years.
- “Monk’s Cafe” — A Belgian cafe at 16th and South, serving 80+ beers and authentic Flemish style bar food.
Well, it’s good to know I won’t starve, or run out of new beers to try while in Philadelphia. Looks like I’ll have to plan a return visit.
