Sure, everyone knows about East Passyunk’s longstanding Cheesesteak Corner rivalry between Pat’s and Gino’s. But look past the undeniably luxurious combination of meat and cheese and bread, and you’ll soon discover that East Passyunk (pronounced “pash-yunk”) offers a whole smorgasbord of foodie delights.
You can literally stand at the singing fountain—which is a leisurely 10-minute walk from Southwark—close your eyes, spin around, point in any direction, and be rewarded with more dining options than you have time or the constitution to enjoy for the foreseeable future.
Much like the original immigrants who settled here, the diversity of cuisine hails from far and wide, covering many continents, cultures, and styles. From the French bistro bites of Fond, to the Asian fusion inspired hot pastrami bao at Bing Bing Dim Sum, to the house made pickles and locally sourced veggies at Green Aisle Grocery, the tastes are budding around these parts.
