Scrapple at The Dining Car and Market

The Dining Car and Market in Philadelphia
The Dining Car and Market in Philadelphia
The Dining Car and Market in Philadelphia is located in a shopping mall, but it looks like its from a different era. It was built by the Swingle Dines company and dropped at its current location. The hostess says its been there since the early 1980s although the restaurant itself is older than that. It's like walking into a 1940s dining car with silver and black and art deco everywhere. It's a lot of fun just going inside. There's plenty of seating, which is a good thing since it was very busy when I was there for an early lunch. The Dining Car also has a bakery.

I found The Dining Car and Market in the original Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives book which has been one of my go-to books during my cross-country road food trip from California --

The Gremlin at Ishkabibble's Eatery


One of my daughter's friends tipped us off to Ishkabibble's Eatery which was right on the path of our cross-Philly day trek. He said the cheesesteaks there are incredible, but we were still so full when we arrived from our breakfast at Honey's Sit N Eat that we only had room for a drink.


With a name like The Gremlin, how could I resist? It's only grape juice and lemonade, but it's delicious and a great thirst-quencher on a hot day.

Mac n Cheese Pancake at Honey's Sit 'N Eat


I think foodies can agree that macaroni and cheese goes with just about anything, or at least, with a lot more things than our parents used it for. It's in sandwiches, stuffed under meat dishes, and so why not put it in a pancake? Which is exactly what I had at Honey's Sit n Eat. Read my full review after the break.

John's Roast Pork also has Philly cheesesteaks, but I figured I wanted to get the roast pork since that is what's in their name. And I wasn't disappointed! Read my review of the roast pork sandwich at John's Roast Pork in Philadelphia after the break.

Admittedly, I'm not a pretzel fanatic. I can pass them by when walking through the mall, and don't take them in the snack bags on the plane. But the pretzels at Center City Pretzel Company are different. What makes them the best pretzels? Read my full review of Center City Pretzel Company in Philadelphia after the break.

Pork Italian at Tony Luke's


Tony Luke's has been seen on a lot of TV food shows, such as Man Vs. Food, Food Feuds, Food Wars, and Throwdown with Bobby Flay. So I figured the sandwiches would be good, and they sure are! Read my full review of Tony Luke's Old Philly Style sandwiches in Philadelphia after the break.
