The Best Jewish Food in Philadelphia

In Philly this week for the Democratic National Convention? Or just looking for some awesome Jewish food in the City of Brotherly Love? Oh yeah, we’ve got you covered.

Grab a bagel or bialy, and some whitefish salad of course, at Chestnut Street Bagels. You won’t believe you’re not in New York.

Chow down for lunch on some authentic, freshly made hummus, pita and limonana at Dizengoff. Then walk across the street and snag a donut from one of Michael Solomonov’s other eateries, Federal Donuts. (OK, not Jewish – but seriously delish.)

Falafel fans won’t want to miss the beloved falafel at Mama’s Vegetarian.

Looking for Jewish comfort food with an Italian twist? Check out the Reuben arancini, challah French toast and Jewish Italian wedding soup at The Avenue.

Or if you just need a comforting bowl of matzah ball soup and pastrami on rye, head to the Famous 4th Street Deli.

And OK, it may not be Jewish per say, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention Center City Pretzel, an iconic Philadelphia staple and – gasp – certified kosher!
