I spent yesterday afternoon strolling around Chinatown solo. It’s a colorful and vibrant area of Philadelphia that I don’t visit nearly enough. There are cheap eats and amazing massages (I’m kind of addicted to a woman named Lilly who climbs on my back and kneads it like a mound of bread dough- all for less than the price of an H&M dress). I ate at Sakura Mandarin on the corner of 11th & Race. It’s a cozy place with lots of locals and great lunch specials.
Miso soup: liquid nutrition
Sushi: yet another thing I adore from the East
After lunch I browsed around the various shops. I bought some tea and a few vegetables. I also couldn’t resist trying a new and crazy looking fruit.
The surprising view from the inside
The taste reminded me of a watered-down kiwi, and it was a refreshing treat on a warm day. What Chinatown treasures have you discovered?
