Ember & Ash
With pig’s head, a silky pork mousse, and pig’s blood cannoli on the menu, this South Philly spot has a few dishes you’ll only be able to find at Ember & Ash. And just like its name, virtually everything here is charred or touches the flames in the open kitchen, including one of our favorites: the beef shin. It’s massive–it comes in an oval shaped pan as big as the eggs in Jurassic Park–and you should take some of the curry-glazed shreds of beef and eat them in the accompanying lettuce wraps. Entrees here cost up to $80, so it’s a great place to celebrate an anniversary or finding your lost car keys.
