The Philadelphia restaurant scene is thriving, with so many options, so many world cuisines represented around all of the city’s neighborhoods. Adventurous diners seeking an affordable and exotic meal should try Rangoon, a Burmese restaurant on 9th Street in Philly’s Chinatown. The menu is varied and can accommodate meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. Burmese food has been described as cuisine fused from Southeast Asian, Chinese and Indian influences. Some of the restaurant’s signature dishes include the wonderful appetizer called Firecracker Lentil Fritters (crunchy and spicy, but not overly spicy), the sublimely delicious Coconut Tofu, and the yummy Thousand Layer Bread. Reservations are not required.
