Philadelphia, city of freedom…

Who knew our fore fathers fought for more than religious freedom? I’d like to think Washington was really battling for a Philly Cheesesteak and a cannoli from Termini Brothers. I arrived in Philly two days ago, and since then I have experienced some serious local cuisine.

Reading Terminal Market- this place is heaven. For dinner last night I had a beef brisket sandwich with horseradish sauce on it from Hershel’s East Side. Holy cow was it good! You can’t make a bad food choice in this place.

Termini Brothers- Today I headed back to the Reading Terminal Market. I could not leave without getting a pastry from Termini Brothers. I got a cannoli, my absolute favorite dessert ever (photo above), but while waiting in line for 20 minutes for my single cannoli, I took photos of some of their other AMAZING treats!

It has not all been about great food, there has been a little history too. Today I saw Independence Hall, the West Wing, Ben Franklin’s grave, the United States Mint, the President’s house, and the Liberty Bell. It was a busy day of touring, eating AND walking.

Tomorrow’s agenda- a real Philly Cheesesteak and a jog up the Art Museum steps while pretending I am Sylvester Stallone in Rocky.

  3. I wanted to go to DiNic’s so bad, but the line was soooo long, and we were in somewhat of a hurry! I need to plan a trip to your city… NYC!
