In the comestibles department:
At Northern Liberties' Bar Ferdinand (1030 N. Second St.), chef David Ansill has fired up a wood-burning oven constructed by his boss, owner Owen Kamihira. Ansill's new late-night menu - available in the bar and dining room and is offered Sunday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to midnight and Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m - includes tapas, raciones, flatbreads, and charcuterie and cheese. See the menu here. You're looking at the Jamón Coca with Baked Egg and Garlic Oil.
The curiously named Chinatown storefront i Green (1028 Arch St., 267-519-2742) is many things: most obviously from the machines set up in the front. a self-serve fro-yo shop. But the best part is the dim sum made in the back by owner Jin Gao's mother. Hold out your hand. That Fuzhou-style bun at left - filled with pork in a savory gravu - is at least the size of your palm. You get two of the steaming, squishy beauties for $2.25. The smaller, pan-fried Fuzhou pork buns ($4.95) are just as tasty. Same room for a bubble tea, too.
