Nine to $5: The Best Cheap Bites in Philly

The Peking Duck Roll is on the list. But, what else?

Five dollars won’t get you far on the taxi meter, but it can still buy a bite of something seriously tasty. Eating on the cheap is an art form in this city and this economic climate, and luckily there are some true diamonds in the rough among the shitty pizza slices and premade tuna sandwiches, if you know where to look.

The selections on this list run the gamut from savory to sweet, and everything in between. Surely, there's something for everyone, and in neighborhoods all across the city.
