Awesome food scene in Philly. But not often cheap.
Buddhakan on Chestnut & 3rd -- Pan Asian & cool decor
Blue in Green for brekkie
Thai -- Erawan on 23rd-ish (a dive, but delicious)
the "new" Continental at 19th & Chestnut -- fun kitsch retro
Di Bruno's on 18th -- panini
I don't like Marathon Grills, but they're always packed.
