Mummers Museum, 1100 S. Second Street, Philadelphia.

    Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia
    he Mummers Parade, an institution in Philadelphia since 1901, brought together many of the loosely organized groups of folk performers who roamed the streets each year between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day. Known variously as mummers, shooters, belsnickles, fantasticals, and callithumpians, these masqueraders traced their roots to immigrants from England, Sweden, and Germany who introduced mumming to pre-Revolutionary Philadelphia.

Cheap Eats: 15 Binge-Worthy Bowls at Philly Eateries

...and banh mi, like this noodle dish that has grilled (not the ubiquitous poached) shrimp. 120 South 13th Street, Midtown Village...

Primavera, Alfredo, a touch of pesto, prosciutto, grilled shrimp, zucchini, goat cheese — you have complete control over what goes into your hefty bowl of pasta. Bonus points for the yummy house-made gluten-free pastas and the free delivery. 1511 South Street, Grad Hospital.

...have a bite. And those little bits of fried tempura batter add texture and crunch. 1518 Chestnut Street, Center City...

...like this saucy bibimbap-inspired bowl loaded with sautéed greens, mushrooms and shredded carrots. 207 South 16th Street, Rittenhouse...

The chicken pho is good. It’s also rare, because most serious Vietnamese restaurants don’t do chicken. But the mushroom broth in this pho is hauntingly tasty and only gets better the longer the kitchen has it on the stove. 308 East Girard Avenue, Fishtown.

...and salmon, toss on avocado and pineapple. The end result is 100 percent Instagram-worthy. 958 North 2nd Street, Northern Liberties...

...s easy to become overwhelmed, lose all sense of self, and default to the safe. 1935 Chestnut Street, Rittenhouse...

The sweet-sauced tacos at this Korean/Mexican-fusion walk-up spot in Chestnut Hill’s Market at the Fareway are quite good, but our favorite dish here combines spicy strips of pork with fresh and sautéed pickled veggies over improbably flavorful white rice. 8229 Germantown Avenue, Chestnut Hill.

Consider this a green smoothie on steroids. A blend of spinach, kiwi, banana and matcha (a trendy caffeine-laced green tea powder) is sprinkled with your choice of superfoods — think goji berries and cacao nibs. Now go conquer the world. 263 North 3rd Street, Old City.

Thanks to Pure Fare’s avocado-based smoothie bowl, you can unabashedly eat your avocado — blended with orange and spinach, then topped off with shredded coconut, banana and pumpkin seeds — with a spoon. 119 South 21st Street, Rittenhouse.

Ravenous breakfast eaters, be warned: Size-wise, this yogurt and house-made granola dish is really more cup than bowl — but since it rings in at less than the cost of a latte, you totally get your money’s worth. 1335 Frankford Avenue, Fishtown.
