Back in Philly after a late summer break.  We started by crashing Parkway 100’s  press conference outside the Academy of Natural Science – listening to the talks netted us free Dippin’ Dots and a Philly-centered dot-to-dot book (not just for kids – one of the pages has over 1,000 dots.  After 1/2 hours work, we still only finished 1/4 of the page).  Very excited about the activities going on to celebrate the Parkway’s 100 year anniversary – we already have our tickets for a ride in the Firefly pedicabs.  After the unexpected snack, we walked to Chinatown for 2 of our favorite treats:

Bahn mi from QT Vietnamese Sandwich (48 N. 10th St.) – we get the #1 special with meat, carrot, cilantro and jalapeno on the best French bread in Philly.  At $6.60 for a sharable sandwich, it’s a great bargain. We ate in the cute little parking-spot park at 10th/Cherry – 2 planters, 2 benches, all squeezed in 1 parking spot right in the middle of Chinatown.

We followed with a Very Mango from Bubblefish (909 Arch St.) – boba for Tobey and popping yogurt for me.  Since Tobey loves bubble tea, we stopped by one of the Asian grocery stores to purchase our own tapioca balls.  We are going to attempt to make bubble tea at home.  Stay tuned for the results…
