The Philadelphia region has received national recognition for its food scene. The Mendenhall community is especially desirable as its suburban atmosphere has an array of restaurant options. Cheesesteaks are huge in the entire region, with several American restaurants having them on their menus. It is also relatively easy to find snacks in the form of soft pretzels in Mendenhall. A trip to the area would not be complete without trying a potpie. Hoagies come in all sorts of varieties here, including Italian, chicken, roast beef, and meatball. Mendenhall is close to Kennett Square, which is known for its many mushroom farms. For something different, try a mushroom crepe. Finish off your day with some Italian water ice.
