This post makes me very happy. I am from Philly and at the moment, seriously considering relocating to Portland. This list reminded me of one of the many reasons I want to move there. So many food options!

mandi- i loved philly when i was there! i wouldn't mind living there for a bit, but i definitely feel like portland is home and i like the....(ok, this is cheesy sounding) vibe.

philly's architecture kicks ass though.
