What do you consider to be Philly's best-kept dining secret?

Variety. Variety of cuisines. Variety of places with those cuisines. Not into the one-upsmanship game of "yes, but did you ever have the ____ at ______". Love to try and to share. Period!

What is your favorite restaurant in the city?

For what? I go to "Mustard Greens" for their dumplings, garlic string beans, and scallops (in season): "Viet Nam" (either location) for #s 37, 66, and the bbq platter; Amada for the "Gambas al ajillo"; Picanha for Brazilian rodizio and the BEST "pudim" (flan) and a taste of home (I grew up in Brazil); Four Seasons for Sunday brunch AND high-tea; El Vez for fresh guacamole; Pod for seafood fried rice; The Imperial Inn for dim sum; Mama Maria's for home-made limoncello and the multi-course belt-popping dinner; The Waterworks for high prices, small portions and bad service; Le Bec Fin for the memories; Victor's Cafe for the atmosphere and arias; Zesty's for fresh fish and friends (the owners)... etc.

What cuisines have you not tried but would really like to?

Surprise me.

What are your favorite types of cuisines?

The usual suspects....


Had deep-fried baby scorpions in Beijing, taken Chocolate tour of Philly (and my own in Brussels), conducted survey of best lemon merengue pie in South Jersey (Sage Diner) and best "Saganaki" in Santorini... but (slightly) out of touch with Philly
