Vernalicious, once a most beloved and popular local food truck, has gone brick-and-mortar in South Philadelphia. Chef Verna Swerdlow runs the kitchen in this corner take-out or eat-in BYOB restaurant at the corner of Front and Ritner in the Whitman neighborhood. The space is small and unassuming, but the food is always fresh and delicious and the service is warm and welcoming.
Whether you live in the neighborhood or come from out of town, the pulled pork grilled cheese from Vernalicious is an absolute must-try. That said, the vegetable and salad are the true star of the many dishes in the restaurant. Chef Swerdlow really knows how to bring out the brightness and flavors in a salad.
Vernalicious is the place to be if you’re looking for a true hidden gem tucked into a small corner of a quiet neighborhood.
