Favorite thing about Philadelphia? The diversity and how it is expressed in the food culture.
Favorite place in the city? Reading Terminal Market – noticing a food theme here.

Typical packed lunch? If I’m packing my own lunch–it’s going to be a sandwich and yogurt. If my kind co-worker(Dorothy) is packing lunch–I get to eat delicious left-overs–real food.
