Taking a break to refuel at the Craft Show can keep you going—and offers a chance to explore nearby Philadelphia. Chinatown and the historic Reading Terminal Market are less than a block away from the Convention Center at 12th and Arch, and offer wallet-friendly meals and real Philly flavors. You can sample Malaysian meals at Penang or classic giant hoagies and Amish specialties at the Reading Terminal Market. Here are some top restaurant picks from the neighborhood – a lot of these places can be cash-only, so be prepared. Hint: try the roasted pork, provolone and broccoli rabe sandwich at DiNics for a true Philly treat that’s not a cheesesteak, or try FUEL for a healthy alternative.
