On Saturday, July 27, I traveled to Philadelphia with my sister to see the Marvel Comics exhibit at the Franklin Institute.
While in the City of Brotherly Love, we needed some fun places to eat on this trip.
First stop was Federal Donuts on the 3000 block of Samson Street in West Philadelphia. We ordered a three-piece plain (breast, thigh and leg) ($10) and a chicken sandwich — boneless fried chicken breast, cheese, tomato, lettuce, ranch powder and special sauce on a potato roll. ($8)
For donuts, I ordered the special donut of the day — peach ricotta. ($2.75)
After the exhibit, we hit up the Big Gay Ice Cream shop on 1351 South St. I ordered the Mermaid (vanilla soft serve, key lime curd, pie crust crumble and whipped cream).
Before heading home, we decided to eat again. We found the Tattooed Mom at 530 South St. I ordered the Chubbsteak Wrap (cheesesteak wrap with tater tots and sriracha ketchup). My sister ordered the tater tots and pierogies.
