Wolf knows good food. Good, solid food. Wolf's Market has all
the Center City yup-scale fodder you'd expect, but also
turns out some of the best road food in Philadelphia.
am serious about hamburgers. Very serious. I
would never order a burger from a market. And I
didn't order a burger from Wolf's. Somehow my order
for a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich turned into a
Wolf Burger - a perfectly grilled hamburger on a kaiser
roll with onions, peppers and mushrooms, and topped with
provolone. One bite; "my what the hell
- it's not worth the hassle of returning it"
attitude changed into "Eureka, I might have stumbled
upon the best hamburger in Center City." At
least it's in my top three, the other two burgers being
from Monk's Cafe and The Palm.
I alternate. Burger one time. Grilled cheese
the next. We're talking a Holly-sized grilled cheese
sandwich - thick Texas toast, a thick lay of
cheddar, thick slices of tomatoes.
way, be sure to wash your sandwich down with a bottle of
Rosenberger's chocolate milk.
