News – “50 THINGS YOU NEED TO EAT IN PHILADELPHIA BEFORE YOU DIE”

thrillist.comBad news: You’re going to die. Good news: There’s plenty of delicious Philly food to eat before you do. Just do us a favor and don’t eat everything on our Philadelphia food bucket list at one time, lest said list ironically becomes the reason you kick said bucket.

1. BRISKET CHEESESTEAK

Deke’s BBQ

Address and Info

MANAYUNK

The sit-down iteration may be shuttered in Roxborough, but the carry-out storefront remains. It’s worth the visit to stock up on all the fixings of the ideal barbecue, no grill work or good weather required.

2. TACOS

Cantina Dos Segundos

Address and Info

NORTHERN LIBERTIES

Doubled up tortillas just mean double the love at Dos Segundos, where you can build your own tacos (goat is an option) and order late, making it the perfect place to go after a few hours at the bars.

Bud & Marilyn's
BUD & MARILYN’S

3. FUNFETTI CAKE

Bud & Marilyn’s

Address and Info

GAYBORHOOD

The cake is a towering masterpiece that you should be commended for finishing (if you can). To sweeten the deal, pair the cake with Bud & Marilyn’s signature rosé slushie: the frose.

4. SALTED CARAMEL BUDINO

Barbuzzo

Address and Info

GAYBORHOOD

Save room for dessert after you wolf down an entire pizza drizzling with egg yolk, because Barbuzzo puts dark chocolate, vanilla bean, caramel, and sea salt all in a little jar that packs more flavor than its size suggests.


I have now made it my duty to check off every item on this list that I haven’t tried yet….stay tuned folks.
