If you are looking for Soul food or a taste of down South cooking then you need to read on. I'm always on the look out for new places to eat. I like trying new restaurants or even a vendor's spot. Who can resist a sausage sandwich from a corner vendor in Philly not me. Anyway. I have heard about this place so many times walked down South Street a million times and never went into Ms. Tootsie's. I can tell you now I will be going to Ms. Tootsie's asap, like this week. One thing Philly does not lack is good food. To me Pat's Steak is great Philly "cuisine" which by the way you can now order nationwide. I found a great article on www.VisitPhilly.com that gives you many of the Southern and Soul Food spots in Philly. I found a jewel Keven Parker talking about his famous Philly restaurant and Center City Philadelphia being a great place to live, work and maybe even open a business. Interesting things he talked about like what Center City was like 15 years ago. It's amazing.
