Chinatown is Philadelphia’s ID card. When we crave junk food and want to taste delicious, we are here, where we can be excited and comforted. Philadelphia’s Chinatown is only a few square blocks, and the surrounding area is squeezed by glorious blocks. But it has never been concealed or covered by them. As a community, it is easily accessible and softly welcoming at the same time. Chinatown has its own special rules. The restaurants here are not hypocritical or authentic, nor their own DIY goodwill. The kitchens, counters, and markets here are not a destination for fools, but the heart of a thriving community. Fortunately for us, that community really knows how to eat.
The amazing restaurants to try in Chinatown
Eat Tom’s Dim Sum’s Scallion Pancakes
Dim sum is just part of the surprise you can find here. Tom’s dim sum allows you to step into the dining world of Chinatown. Don’t skip onion pancakes, if you end up eating only one, no one will judge you. However, if you don’t get some chicken glutinous rice balls, you will definitely miss it. So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags book a JetBlue Flights to Philadelphia and head to Chinatown to have an amazing dinner.
Try A5 wagyu Beef from Chubby Cattle
After making big in Vegas now Chubby Cattle has also set foot in Philly since 2018, which did not make it an empirical dining destination . Choose the broth you want to use for cooking, and if you have a meal, keep your eyes open and wait for snacks that traverse the path on the constantly moving (and refrigerated) conveyor belt.
Taste Spice C’s House special hand made noodles
With the hand-painted noodles running, it is hard to go wrong with any noodle-centric dish on Spice C-even more importantly, if you are interested in the chef’s special Singapore rice noodles, this is the stir-fried vermicelli noodles of ultra-thin rice . You can also choose to cut the noodles with a knife instead of hand-painted noodles.
Eat special Xi’an Sizzling Woks hamburger
You can find fascinating mixed dishes in Xi’an Teppanyaki Wok, which is centered on Shaanxi cuisine. Think about favorite alternative foods such as regular left-handed and lo noodles, egg rolls, as well as cuisines including rice noodle casserole, chive pie, and Chinese burgers, all made with your choice of braised or spicy minced pork .
Savor delicious Beef Rendang at Penang’s
Penang provides its customers Malaysian specialties in an open air kitchen, which is more suitable for looking and waiting for Indian homemade pancakes, steamed betel nuts and bacon wrapped shrimp puffs. If you are not familiar with Malaysian flavors, then Rendang beef is definitely a wonderful first dish, super tender and full of flavor.
Try Marilyn Monroll at Bubblefish
Bubblefish provides excellent sushi and an amazing boba tea menu, but if you need something stronger, it also belongs to BYOB. Marilyn Monroll added a layer of torch-like white tuna to the connon tuna-salmon-avocado game, while the monster roll introduced some mangoes, which brought a more delicious surprise.
Taste Burmese Wonton at Rangoon
Rangoon has brought Burmese cuisine to Philadelphia, offering a variety of cuisines including noodle salad, curry, white rice and soup. Try Burmese wontons as crispy pork and sweet coconut syrup, or ribs as a savory blend of basil, coriander, garlic and home seasoning. And don’t forget the pineapple jelly crunch dessert.
Check out Chili Oil Boiled Beef at Red Kings 2
Under normal circumstances, this is expected to be another ideal destination for late-night karaoke and spicy Sichuan cuisine (the kitchen is open until late!). But for now, we must adapt to the uninhabited population. If you want some spice, you can try chicken or pork fried with long chili, or cut into small pieces with cooked beef or fish fillets dipped in chili oil.
Sang Kee Beijing Roast Duck Restaurant
This Duck House has been engaged in roast duck for more than 40 years, and the nominal menu items can easily become a must-chosen list for Philadelphians. Other favorites include boneless barbecue grilled meat (you can buy it by the pound); and a batch of golden fried heads sprinkled with condensed milk. Don’t forget and book with Volaris my trips and enjoy a perfect dinner in Philly Chinatown.
