Philadelphia, PAPennsylvania Dutch Restaurants - With Lancaster’s Amish community close at hand, the Pennsylvania Dutch influence remains strong in Philadelphia dining. The Reading Terminal Market’s Dutch Eating Place provides a countertop passport to German immigrant foodways, cooking up rib-sticking apple dumplings, ham loaf, and shoo-fly pie—all recipes meant to sustain a day of work in the fields.

Also in the market are the Amish-inspired Miller’s Twist (pretzels) and Amish-owned Beiler’s Bakery, in addition to Amish vendors offering fresh produce, canned Chow-Chow pickles and sausages. Elsewhere, traditional dishes such as sticky buns, Scrapple, and whoopie pies make their appearances at restaurants from the relatively modest (Melrose Diner, Jerry’s Bar, Strangelove’s) to the absolutely high-end Fork sides of the spectrum.
