When it comes to food, Philadelphia is well known for its regional fare, including cheesesteaks, soft pretzels, water ice, and hoagies.
When in Philadelphia, a visit to Passyunk Avenue to sample Pat’s and Geno’s Steaks is a must. Philadelphia has a lot more than cheesesteak sandwiches though. With more than 700 Zagat-rated restaurants, an eclectic food truck scene, and Philadelphia’s iconic Reading Terminal Market, Philadelphia’s fantastic food scene is quickly emerging as one of the country’s finest culinary destinations. Whether Iron Chefs, cooking-show stars, or restaurant royalty, epicurean masters are spicing up every corner of the city, making it the perfect place to try the hottest dining trends. Just make sure you leave room for dessert at National Geographic’s number one worldwide location to enjoy ice cream, Capogiro Gelato.
