    With everything from brewpubs to Ethiopian cafes, West Philly has a wealth of places just waiting to feed you. West Philly is Philly's most perfect food neighborhood: It's our culinary laboratory, where one-offs and wild knots of Asian and African cuisines feed the neighbors and try to make their marks.
