Philadelphia is a city that is well-known for its food. There’s no better example of that than in the Germantown section of North Philadelphia, primarily around La Salle University. I hit the streets of Germantown to snap some pictures of the popular eateries for the locals.
Explorers Den, located on the corner of Chew and Olney Avenues, is a popular spot for the students of La Salle who are in the mood for a late-night snack or something better tasting than the dining halls.
Right down the block from Explorers Den lies Happy Fortune, known for their delicious Chinese food. This spot is located on the corner of Elkins and Olney Avenues and is also frequently visited by La Salle students.
A very well-known company has just recently moved into the Germantown area. I’m talking of course about the Philly Pretzel Factory recently built on the corner of Broad and Olney. This establishment sells pretzels in all different types, such as pizza pretzels, pretzel sausages and my personal favorite, the pretzel hot dog.
Then there’s Bizinis, a small restaurant on the corner of Lindley and Ogontz Avenues. It is attractive to La Salle students who live on South Campus, primarily in St. Neumann Hall or St. Basil Court. This low key spot is best known for its seafood.
That was a quick peek at some of the food establishments in the Germantown area. There are plenty of other spots to hit when you want a quick meal for a cheap price. Just take a stroll down Olney Avenue and you will sure be able to find a suitable place to fill up.
