Rangoon Burmese Restaurant
Any food magazine will tell you the Philadelphia restaurant scene is thriving, with many world cuisines represented across the city’s neighborhoods. Adventurous diners seeking an affordable and exotic meal should try Rangoon, a Burmese restaurant on Ninth Street in Philly’s Chinatown. The wide-ranging menu can accommodate carnivores and vegetarians alike. Some of the restaurant’s signature dishes include "firecracker" lentil fritters (an appetizer that's crunchy and spicy, but not overly hot), a sublime coconut-tofu side dish, and delicious "thousand-layer" bread. Reservations are not required.
