Born and raised or imported to Philly? Born and raised.
Favorite restaurant in Philly? There are so many restaurants to choose from but one of my favorite restaurants is Warmdaddy’s. If you are in the mood for a relaxing atmosphere, delicious soul food and live jazz then Warmdaddy’s is the place to be.
Best place to shop in Philly (food, clothes, gifts, jewelry, etc). Select one? Reading Terminal carries fresh produce, specialty meats and poultry, restaurants, seafood, flowers and ethnic food. It is the perfect one-stop-shop if you are in the Center City area.
What is your one favorite “best kept secret” about Philly? Something that you and only a few others know about but everyone should… Instead of searching for the “most popular” cheesesteak location, it is best to ask the locals who will direct you to places like Dalessandro’s in the Roxborough section of the city where you will not be disappointed.
What makes Philly your Philly? What do you absolutely love about the city? Philadelphia is a large city filled with small communities with their own unique culture. I love being able to travel throughout the city and see a variety of building structures, murals, parks, businesses and restaurants.
