People ask me all the time what my all time favorite restaurant is in Philly, and honestly this is a very hard questions for me to answer. Maybe it’s because I have many favorite restaurants or maybe it’s because I can’t think that quickly about the best meal I’ve ever had. But here are my favorites restaurants in Philly by category! Enjoy.
Zama is very high class but for sure the freshest sushi in Philadelphia. Must try is the bronzizzle roll and the grilled avocado!
Pasta: Little Nonna’s
This is by far the most authentic Italian restaurant in Philly. The atmosphere is charming with a cute outside patio for those romantic nights. First timers need to get the Sunday gravy, Eggplant parm and the BVP meatballs.
Mexican: El Vez
The most vibrant Mexican restaurant I have ever been to, El Vez is perfect for after work meet ups or a saturday date night. My go-to is the spicy crab guac and the crispy mahi-mahi tacos!
Brunch: Ants Pants Cafe
The best part about this cafe is that it’s Australian and all the waiters have accents (cha-ching), besides for that, it is a quaint restaurant with enclosed, outdoor seating which is heated in the winter. They have an amazing sweet potato hash with 2 eggs, bacon, sausage and sweet potatoes. It is heavenly.
