just thought i would chime in here - i grew up in that area and still go
there to visit family - but if anyone is vegetarian there is a chinese (and
kosher to boot) restaurant called "cherry street." if you google "cherry
street vegetarian philadelphia" you will find it.
they used to save all their fryer oil for me so when i would be in the area
i would run my diesel van on it for the trip back to KY. i haven't been
there in several years so not sure what they do with it now.
