Camden is often times a sore subject, but it's a city in development that's worthy of attention for its food. For the full picture, direct your attention to our list of shamefully underrated places to eat in our neighboring city: some of them are destinations, others boast foods hard to find in Philadelphia proper. All of them are very good.
It's a mixed bag of eating options — places like Rocco's Steaks could just as easily be part of Philly, while Reggae Grill outdoes almost anything jerk-style available west of the Delaware River. Also among the myriad culinary options: soul food at Corinne's Place, some excellent and cheap taquerias, and even the odd Korean-American (but not totally fusion) Friends Cafe.
