Free chai spice donut at Federal Donuts! What is the winning combination for getting something for free? Be extra friendly? Be an obvious tourist? Who knows, but I will try all methods at all stores from now on ๐Ÿ™‚

Also free: a honey donut.ย This place came HIGHLY recommended by a few friends, and yes it was indeed worth the two-transfer bus ride.

The chicken can come with tossed in either a dry rub or a wet glaze. We couldn’t decide what flavor so the shopgirl offered her fav: the honey-ginger glaze. Thumbs up, shopgirl!

Tiny shop in a residential area. Even while these restaurants receive hundreds of reviews on Yelp, its surprising that these places are often tucked in seemingly out-of-the-way places. Philly seems pretty spread out.

Amish chickens! These are actually raised by the Amish, which means they were naturally fed without growth-hormones or preservatives.

So much meat! At Reading Terminal Market, the shops reflect the Amish, German, and Italian roots of the city.

I really wanted to try Philly butter cakes but by this point I was stuffed to capacity. I believe these recipes are German in origin.

So good. Like two cupcake tops with cream cheese frosting mashed in. Soft and nommy.

They only make turkey sandwiches. Wow.

They make the pretzel, then douse it in butter and sprinkle sea salt over it. My gosh.

House-made slim jims!!! They were $.75 a pop and so tasty.I wish I tried more samples.
