Philadelphia- 1st day

Our 1st day we drove straight to Philadelphia. I booked 2 nights at the Hilton Garden Inn which is right beside the Reading Terminal so it's in a great location. 

Tom first wanted to eat at Pat's King of Steaks and Geno's for Philly Cheesesteaks. It had been almost 2 months since he had any meat so he was nervous he would get sick. He wasn't going to eat any meat but there were a few places he always wanted to try so he decided he would. We drove there first before checking into the hotel.

First he had Pat's.

Then right next door he had Gino's

He said by far that Pat's was the best sandwich he has ever had.

Gage & Graham wanted pizza so close by we found Slice not too far from Pat & Geno's.

 The boys loved the ice cream at Bassetts and the pretzels at Miller's Twist

Tom and I enjoyed smoothies from the Juice Bar

The next sandwich Tom had to try was Tommy Dinic's Pork sandwich

I am not sure how he got 3 sandwiches down in one afternoon and then we had reservations that evening for the Vedge- all Vegan restaurant 

Fingerling Fries-Potatoes deep fried with creamy worcestershire sauce $6

bread with oil

 braciole: smoked eggplant & cauliflower, italian salsa verde, cured olive $13
 salt roasted gold beets, avocado, smoked tofu, rye, capers, creamy cucumber $10

Blueberry Fritter with Sorbet $8

I LOVED the dessert. The blueberry fritters were like little yummy warm donuts. I ate it so slow to enjoy every bite! I can't believe how good they were, one of my favorite desserts! The place was nice, servings very small but gourmet style and a little expensive but not too bad.
