Famous 4th Street Delicatessen (Philadelphia)

By in 11: Philadelphia

This is one those crazy nights where I have 2 dinners back to back (*shame*). I had a reservation at Matyson at 9, but I got there early hoping for an early seating. Turns out there aren’t any. I was starving at the moment. That’s when the lights from across the street caught my attention.


It is a classic East Coast jewish deli called Famous 4th Street Delicatessen. We’re thinking of grabbing some cookies and bread to calm our growling stomach.


I needed some effort to control myself not trying their Pastrami sandwich. They brought us bread and pickles/coleslaw as we sat.


The bread is filled with green onion, it was SO good! We got the Famous Chicken Soup with Matzo Ball, Kreplach, noodle, rice and Kasah that turn out to be family size! It was very comforting and tasty…and filling.


I got a Prune Pastry to go, it was so good! This place seems like a very good place to pick up some classic jewish deli delights for work lunch.
