Re: [Philadelphia-pm] Visiting monger

I work right near there. Since starting my current job I've been doing extensive field research in nearby Chinatown. 

If the decision is Asian, my top recommendation is: Imperial Inn (146 North 10th St). They have good Dim Sum service at lunch time and the best Egg Rolls in Chinatown. There are a lot of other good choices in Chinatown too. 

If the decision is not asian around 2nd and Market I recommend the National Mechanics (3rd off Market) or if people don't mind spending a little more, the Continental (2nd and Market). For Cheeseteaks Campos is right there at 2nd and Market.

Asian food works well for me, and I'm generally an unfussy eater who
can enjoy pretty much any cuisine, so I'm happy to go along with the
consensus.  I'm naturally planning to try a cheesesteak while I'm in
town, but I can happily do that another time, of course.

I'm currently booked into a hotel near the 2nd Street subway station.
I'm sure I can find my way to another neighborhood for lunch, though.
