Our Favorite Food Truck (Worth Braving The Snow!) And Guerrilla Art @ Moore College

We willingly wait in line for an hour in the summer, but have never visited in the winter.  However, when we saw our favorite food truck was open, we decided to brave the snow and wind. Arriving 25 minutes before opening, we were first in line and were rewarded with a cup of spicy soup (actually the sauce he uses over the rice, but works as a soup, too!).  I’ve written about the Octopus food truck before (The Advantages of Wandering: A Medieval Herbal And The Best $10 Lunch In Philadelphia), but it deserves another mention.  While the basic lunch is always the same (rice, sauce, grilled chicken and falafel), the seasonal fruits and veggies vary.  Today, we were rewarded with blueberries, a variety of grapes, a whole mandarin orange, and cauliflower (I’m not a big cauliflower fan, but ate every bite!).  Since eating outside picnic-style wasn’t an option in this weather, we ate in the food court of the Comcast Building just around the block (Picnic Spots). The leftovers (you get a giant portion for $10) made a great lunch stuffed in a pita the next day).

We spent the rest of our time exploring the (FREE – just present id at the security booth) contemporary art galleries at Moore College.  Moore College was founded in 1848 as the first women’s art college in the United States. Located right in the heart of the museum district, it makes a great stop if you have some extra time and want a free activity.  The exhibits rotate, so there is always something new to see (the current exhibit is dedicated to work by the Guerrilla Girls).
