Alyan's is a great place for Middle Eastern food, just a couple of blocks from PWAT! Try their delicious seasoned French Fries! Check out their Yelp page here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/alyans-restaurant-philadelphia
Roasted Cauliflower With Olives, Currants, and Tahini Dressing From 'Vibrant Food' My modification- swap the currants for dried pomegranate seeds (minus the seeds). Those little bright pops of sourness are wonderful
Frickles Fried Pickles! If you have never heard of frickles before, well, welcome. A frickle is a deep fried pickle whether they are pickle wedges or pickle chips. These frickles are pretty darn amazing and make a quick party appetizer, or side dish for that matter.
