Chef Garces opened up another restaurant in Philly featuring wood fired fare.

The burrata was probably one of my favorite dishes! Super flavorful and smooth!

We also tried one of their salads (it was huge!)

We had to get a pizza since that was their specialty. We chose the egg pizza and it was very different but very delicious!


They had a few different pastas and our favorite was the rabbit one. It also came with cherries that went really well with the flavor! Though the serving was small we thoroughly enjoyed it!


Boba King 

So a new food truck opened outside of the Dental school and I must say that I was SUPER excited about it! Bubble tea anytime I wanted! I ended up getting tea and teriyaki beef from there (they also advertised bao but they don’t have those right now).

I did enjoy the tea, but the beef was absolutely disappointing. It was very flavorless and dry. I guess I’ll stick to the bubble tea!

Bluestone Lane

Sejal had heard about the Australian coffee shop in Center City and we decided to give it a try! It was also a rainy saturday so her, myself and Lovs just went wandering through center city!

It was super cute inside! But they didn’t have wifi which probably explains why it’s so quiet inside!

I had the chai latte:

Little Nonna’s

I’ve been wanting to go to Little Nonna’s for so long and when Andrew came, we had a chance to go! While they’re known for their spaghetti and meatballs (big enough to serve 2 people!) we ended up going with their Sunday gravy which was absolutely delicious!

I know it’s dark and the Sunday gravy is covered in broccoli rabe! But trust me it was delicious!

We had leftovers and to my horror Andrew ate them all without sharing!

New Year!

This year, I just didn’t have the energy to make a giant Chinese new year dinner like last year! So we ended up getting dinner at the new dim sum restaurant by school! I think they did a better job than I could ever do!

Ok so we were really hungry and I didn’t take a picture of the food (Mancia probably started eating the food before they waitress finished putting all the plates on the table)

Ants Pants Cafe

While Andrew was here, we went for brunch with Nathan and Hilary! Ants Pants is serves up Australian inspired food and is located just over on South Street!

Andrew had to start with a strawberry soda float!

We also tried different sandwiches and they served up real potato chips!

I would definitely go back! It was delicious and the people there were so fantastic!
