Angelo's Pizzeria South Philly

We are not so bold as to declare Angelo's Pizzeria the best in Philadelphia, but isn't it? Angelo's Pizzeria served their famous thick-crusted cheesy upside-down in Haddonfield for years before moving to South Philly earlier this year.

Angelo's Pizzeria is currently located in Bella Vista in South Philly. They open noon-9pm daily, are closed Mondays, and have no phone you can reach. You cannot order in advance and must line up after they open to place your order. You can follow them on social media for updates in case they sell out early. Otherwise, it's a total gamble. But trust us, it's a worthwhile gamble. The pizza dough and sandwiches are all made to perfection. At Angelo's, food is art in its purest and simplest form.

Mike Solomonov of Zahav recently said of Angelo's, "Philly is lucky to have you and we are also all in love with you." We at Pharm2Philly have to agree!

America's best new restaurant, Musi, is "utterly charmless"

Musi BYOB, which opened earlier this year in the Pennsport neighborhood of South Philly, won a spot on Eater’s national list of the best new restaurants in America

Musi is an intimate BYOB restaurant in South Philadelphia where chef Ari Miller pioneers relationship-based cuisine, focusing on the farmers, foragers, and makers supplying the goods for his peak-season and flavor-packed plates. Chef Ari Miller is an alum of Zahav and High Street on Market.

Named for chef Ari Miller’s legendary fishmonger in Tel Aviv, Musi serves relationship-based cuisine. Each plate is intentional and represents the kitchen's relationships to the farmers, foragers, makers and artisans who inspire with unique products and one of a kind collaborations. Musi’s small, daily menu offers guests the opportunity to choose a few plates on their own or simply let the kitchen cook for them.

Musi also made PhillyMag's list of 50 best restaurants in Philadelphia and received high praises from Craig Laban, though he did call the cramped space "utterly charmless." Personally, we think Craig just doesn't quite get the South Philly charm.

Remembering Bok's South Philly Smokhaus

Philadelphia is not a barbecue town. That is not to say that we do not have some amazing barbecue joints, because we do.

South Philadelphia Smokhaus, once lauded as one of the best barbecue spot in Philadelphia, closed after a short stint in the Bok Building in South Philly. The shop was a brainchild of Eric Daelhousen, along with Robert Passio of Reading Terminal Market’s Giunta’s Prime. Smokhaus' closure was a great loss to Philadelphia and its emerging, yet struggling barbecue scene.

South Philly Smokhaus may be closed, but the BOK building that housed it is filled with a thriving community of artists and businesses. Visit their website for information on tours and events.
