0 Selecting additional addresses 1
Below is a selection of addresses. The target is family. The goal is to offer you a few places that are accessible to the family and that are quite typical of Philadelphia.
Regarding restaurants, I also tried to select places that were not too expensive.

where to eat ?
400 South St.
Unmissable specialty when you come to Philadelphia: the Philly Cheesesteak. Sandwich consisting of a long loaf stuffed with thinly sliced beef mixed with melted cheese and garnished with onions. Within this local institution, it is composed before your eyes.
308 Market St.
Perfect place to taste another Philadelphia specialty: the Hoagie.
This baguette sandwich is usually made with a little salad and tomatoes to which other elements such as cheese and cold meat are added. A good hoagie therefore requires good bread. This is why this address is ideal for tasting it.

Another recognized address for a typical Philadelphia sandwich. This time it's the Roast pork sandwich.

If you fancy a meal at good value for money, with a wide choice in a nice setting, then go to Chinatown at the restaurant “Vietnam”.
