Paleo-friendly restaurants

  • Chipotle is at 12th and Walnut - carnitas are cooked in lard but veggies are cooked in soy, so you could do carnitas over lettuce, double pico, salsa and guac
  • Smokin' Betty's on 11th and Sansom has a phenomenal burger - the Betty Burger - that I always order without the bun. They also have this amazing dry rub that they put on all their ribs that's good. And optional sides of steamed broccoli/green beans or whipped sweet potatoes if you want.
  • Tria (12th and Spruce or 18th and Sansom, two locations) - an extensive beer/wine/cheese list but they have this amazing smoked duck salad that is my favorite salad in the whole city.
  • Cafe Lift is one of our favorite brunch spots (13th and Callowhill) - they do a ton of frittatas that you can get without cheese, a delicious homemade hot sauce, and you can do a side of potatoes or fruit and this spicy fennel sausage.
  • Honey's is on 4th and Brown and is all local, farm fresh ingredients (brisket omelette!)
  • Barbuzzo and Jamonera on 13th and Sansom Streets are both amazing tapas style places. 
  • Fogo de Chao is a brazilian steakhouse on 13th and Chestnut that is basically all the steak/meat you can eat served on a sword, haha.
  • Aki on Walnut between 12th and 13th has a great 3 roll lunch special if you eat rice - otherwise go at Happy Hour and you can get half off their sashimi appetizer and combine with seaweed salad or whatever else works on the menu (I usually get two sashimi appetizers and at happy hour it comes out to $10 for more than half a pound of sashimi)
  • Rice & Mix, 12th and Walnut They do Korean bibimbop but it's really light and fresh. If you eat rice, it's an AWESOME meal (basically rice, meat of your choice and any vegetables you want to mix in like baby spinach, steamed bok choy, seaweed, etc). I love this place. 
  • Jake's Sandwich Board is on 12th and Sansom. They roast a whole pig there constantly and will do any sandwich over lettuce rather than on bread. This place is GOOD
  • Village Whiskey, amazing burgers and duck fat fries

we are out in the burbs of Philly...West Chester specifically.  If anyone has any suggestions for anywhere in Chester Co it would be AWESOME! Since we started eating paleo my bf and i have only eaten out a handful of times out of desperation from not being close to home and those meals were certainly not paleo.  I def felt miserable afterwards hah! please help us have an enjoyable night out!

White Dog Cafe: ** you don't have permission to see this link **  Found in Wayne as well as Center City.



RKC Certified Kettlebells: ** you don't have permission to see this link **


For West Chester, PA: they may not be the greatest options however you can piece together a pretty good meal that still won't leave you feeling ill

I've been dying to check out Fare in Philadelphia, they're menu looks to be quite paleo friendly.

As for West Chester - Check out Half Moon in Kennett Square. They've got some great game dishes, not to mention its a cute place for a date night.

Fette Sau on Frankford ave is good BBQ. 

They said they use sugar on the rub but only a few of the meats are skin heavy.

the 1/2 chicken is legit as well as the sausages.

broccoli, pickles and sauerkraut all make great sides and of course they have an amazing selection of whiskey.


I'm imagining Reading Terminal has tons to offer


Johnny Brendas and Standard Tap both use local ingredients have a good steak salad as well as a daily selection of oysters, usually has a few good veggie sides and also mussels in a tomato broth(probably not a totally paleo broth but still really good) 

The Wild Boar soup was amazing but not paleo...


Vietnamese Pho on Washington & 11th and a few other spots in chinatown, columbus ave and way up in Kennsington which I have not tried since I was sketched out about locking my bike up there. 


I'm new to this but always looking for new spots since it's tough to find places that both my GF and I agree on without making the paleo thing 'weird' or awkward while ordering....
