For halal food in West Philly, Hadramout is a great option. It’s a small Yemeni spot down the street from Penn’s campus that makes huge sheets of tandoor bread - you’ll want to order extra of it to eat with anything off the menu. Get some of their creamy hummus, a super flavorful lamb soup, or a whole fish that changes depending on what’s fresh. Even though the restaurant is small, there are a few big booths that can fit bigger parties - so you can bring a bunch of friends and order half the menu to share.
