Reading Terminal Market is a scary and overwhelming place, with so many stalls and shops that it’s hard to know where to start. So after wasting an hour walking around and waiting in too many lines, make sure to end up at Pearl’s Oyster Bar. It won’t be the place with the longest line or the most people taking pictures, but they have a counter that usually has a seat or two open and some really damn good snapper soup.

Mission Taqueria in Rittenhouse is one of our go-to Mexican spots in the city. Come here for Happy Hour or a casual date.


Dim Sum Garden in Chinatown is affordable and BYOB, which makes it a serviceable spot anytime you want their excellent soup dumplings.
