It's past midnight, I just got off my flight and I'm super tired, but I just arrived in Philly and no matter what I have to make a stop at Geno's on the way to the hotel.
It's all about the Philly Cheesesteak at Geno's, seriously, because the fries were not good.
I decided to get my Philly the local's way with wiz. It was good, but for me not great. The bread was rubbery.
I was so happy when I got to the hotel, not only because I was tired and now stuffed, but because the hotel (hotel Monaco) was the most beautiful I have ever stayed at. I have stayed at some nice hotels but this one fit my style so I was in love.
The next morning we had brunch at the hotel restaurant, Red Owl Tavern and Bar. I had a Hibiscus Fizz which was truly awesome for breakfast spirits.
I ate the BLT with Avocado that was so good. The avocado adds a necessary element that most BLT's lack.
My fiancé has the Philly Cheesesteak but hated it. It seems like they combined the meat with the cheese and mixed them. I didn't mind it though.
After brunch, we explored the city a little bit.
I couldn't leave Philadelphia without trying the other best Philly spot, Pat's for comparison. I liked Pats a lot better. I found the bread and meat to be better. Pat's would be the winner for me.
The finale, ice cream and sprinkles from Mister Softee.
