UNIVERSITY CITY — Avoid the Chinatown crowds by crossing the Schuylkill for Vietnam Café’s (816 S. 47th Street) flaming cocktails, noodle bowls, and spring rolls. Sister spot Vietnam Restaurant (221 N. 11th Street) in Chinatown is also open.

    A purse was found in a fortune cookie package in one Montco eatery
    From catching a food handler eating lettuce to finding a purse and sweater inside a box of fortune cookies, Montgomery County Health Department inspectors were on the case in November. The department rarely orders eateries to close, but they do dole out plenty of citations and threaten to issue fines if a business doesn't address sanitation concerns.
