"Good restaurants hereabouts"
South 13th is alright. It’s not sketchy or unsafe, like some streets become when you get into south South Philly. Being in Passyunk it’s right in the middle of a great shopping area full of fantastic restaurants. At S. 13th and Dickinson street you’ll find Ippolito’s Seafood. This place has the best crab cakes in South Philly. Just one block south and a few blocks east on Passyunk Ave is Izumi, which is amazing simply for being something other than Italian food. I found it to be a little pricey but tasty, and I lived in Japan for three years so I know what I’m talking about.
