We are: A professional couple, 59 and 60 yrs old, who have lived and loved Philadelphia for 37 years. We live on Rittenhouse Square and in Upper Bucks County
Our Love Note:
Philadelphia is a walking city and an eating city–with more choices of Chinese restaurants than there are choices on a Chinese restaurant menu! What could be better? Depending on the weather and our mood, most weeks we have a dinner at a Chinese restaurant. We appreciate these 3 spots for different reasons: Square-on-Square: top quality ingredients, predictability, and proximity to Rittenhouse Square; Charles Plaza: tasty healthy food choices, the walk to Chinatown, and engaging, friendly, and helpful personalities of the proprietor and staff; Han Dynasty–Handy Nasty to those in the know: Szechuan to the intensity of our palettes’ whim, and the long walk to and from Rittenhouse Square on a lovely evening.
