Smile #16 – Nice to Meet You, Philadelphia! [Part II]

Nice to Meet You, Philadelphia!  [Part II]

The weather was better the second day.  No more rain!!
What kind of trip to Philly is it if I leave without trying an authentic Philly Cheesesteak?!  We walked a couple blocks to the highly recommended Jim’s Steak.  I had a Provolone Cheesesteak without the onions and Bubble ordered Cheesesteak with onion and pepper.  🙂

We walked to the opposite end of downtown Philly to Reading Terminal, an indoor food market.  The goal is to visit Beiler’s Bakery, but unfortunately, it was closed on Sunday.

A large sign advertising Irish Potatoes caught my attention at Philadelphia General Store.   While most people would order it by the pound, but I only wanted a piece to try the favor.  So when we came up to the counter to ask for two Irish Potatoes, the cashier chuckled as he handed it to us.  It is basically a coconut ball.  I’d love it if I was a coconut fan…but I am not.

Before we leave, we tried some local beers at Molly Malloy’s.  I had a pint of Royal Weisse Ale.  Cheers!  🙂

Next stop:  JFK Plaza – LOVE Park.  Everyone was busy with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, keeping the park mostly vacant.  We quickly snapped a few photos and left the scene.

Like I said, it’s all about the food.  Next on the list is Federal Donuts.  OMG!  It is the BEST donuts I have ever had in my life.  The donut just melts in your mouth.  My mouth is watering as I am writing this post!  🙂

Aside from the historical landmarks, we visited the Philadelphia Magic Garden.  Like the name suggested, it is magical.  Every inch of the space is covered in mosaic tiles.  It is absolutely beautiful.   🙂

We concluded our trip with dinner at Vernick.

 Thank you Philadelphia for hosting us..until next time!
