Everyone knows what you're supposed to eat in Philly. Pick a cheesesteak or hoagie (or both), stop for some water ice, buy a soft pretzel. But save room, because there's way more to Philly's food scene.
Like most cities with a booming restaurant culture, there are two camps: the old and the new, the traditional and the modern. And while Philadelphia is now a city nationally recognized for its modern Israeli and vegan delights, among other standouts, dig a little deeper to find iconic dishes rooted in Italian-American tradition, original-Americana recipes, and the contributions of a bustling immigrant community.
