The Memphis up north

Memphis tap room might be a bit of a hike up north for anyone in south or west philly. Luckily philly is small! Cause you gotta try this place. Unique brews and tasty breakfast makes the Memphis tap room a destination. Named after the street it resides on, there is rarely a wait for a table.  Although  I fear if I tell too many people there may be. I had the best breakfast sandwich at memphis everrr. Kielbasa, swiss, egg, and kraut on rye! yeahhh. Everything here is an explosion in your mouth! The establishment features a dining room and a bar, and is lively day and night!

Raw hits the spot

I went to Raw for a special night for my anniversary and it was a wonderful choice. The staff was welcoming and attentive and the sushi was so good I had to close my eyes when eating it. This is something my grandfather taught me when I was little but I never found a use for until dining at Raw. The atmosphere was so lovely and I must go back in the warm weather because there is a beautiful private outdoor patio! Sansom street is such an odd place in center city. Some parts of it look like a service alley. Even Raw, at first glance, looks dark and closed. I would add some exterior lights if I had a say. But then this place might not be such a satisfying find, right?
