Great Vegetarian options!
Great food, awesome, super friendly service, dog friendly (outside). Food was fresh and tasty! FYI, this is more of a modern Indian place, but is still worth the visit if your in the mood for Indian. The channa masala and paratha are awesome!

Great place - I travel from NJ because there is absolutely no Vietnamese anywhere near me, so i come to Philly to get my fix. The Banh Cuon (Vietnamese ravioli) are great, the lemongrass soup with chicken is great and a bit spicy which I like, and I've had several great entrees too. Any of the grilled shrimp or grilled pork chop with lemongrass has great flavor. Enjoy a Mai Tai too for a nice cocktail. If i lived closer, I would go more often!

Flat out the best burgers I've ever had...and the best fries.

Expectations of what a hamburger should taste like have been lowered by decades of frozen meat-flavored-substance served in fast food restaurants called burgers. NOT Five Guys.

Five Guys hamburgers start with Fresh Hamburger...shocking I know. Their french fries start the day as potatoes...a bigger shock.

They say there is no freezer in the restaurant and I believe them.

Fresh ingredients cooked perfectly make for the best burgers I've ever had...and the best fries.

I had one of their steaks today. The rolls are longer; they pack more meat in them, and they're tastier -- all for less money than a Geno's steak. Yummy! It's my new favorite steak place.

CHIFA offers a selection of small plates that blend Peruvian and Cantonese cuisine. We tried the tasting menu and it was delicious in total, but some items were much better than others. Omekase is an interesting approach, but it's most successful when each item that arrives at the table is better than the last. I'd probably elect to order off the menu in the future.

If you want some recommendations, these dishes were outstanding:
Lomo Saltado - a delicious preparation of this popular Peruvian dish
any of the Ceviches or Tiraditos - delectable raw fish prepared with acids like pineapple, lime and orange and balanced with coconut.
Chifa Mussels - thai curry and mussels....need I say more :d

I was a bit disappointed by the Foie Gras Bao Bun we were served...strange because other reviewers raved about CHIFA's buns. Anyhow...I wasn't impressed by the bun dough itself, and that's an important part of the dish.

This is a good restaurant choice for Philadelphians who are looking for a new place to try.

Southern and Jewish? What's not to like y'all? Honey's is a favorite spot for breakfast/brunch of course, but dinner ain't bad either. I have friends who insist on a honeys visit when they are in Philly. BUT: Don't get there between 10:00 and 12:00 on a Saturday morning and expect a table to be waiting for you. It's worth it to get up early, get a table and then go home for a snuggle or a nap. The only bad thing (and yes, this brought it down to 4 stars): coffee isn't great or strong. There's plenty of it , but that's not the same as great coffee.

We went for breakfast/brunch to Pinky's. Despite the name (cheesecake), this is actually a restaurant as well. Not sure why I never found or heard of this place before, especially since I live 2 blocks away. I think it used to be called Buttercup Cafe? I got the eggs/homefries/turkey bacon breakfast, and my friends got the waffle and french toast. Everything was delicious. The service was fast, the food was fresh, and all three of us were very happy. The place is a little more old-fashioned looking. I will definitely return here and recommend it to others as well. Perfect for a neighborhood brunch.
