We all follow a dozen different Instagram accounts that showcase Philadelphia’s finest foods, but it’s no secret that these start to get repetitive once in awhile. If you’re over seeing a hundred pictures of doughnuts and ice cream on your Instagram feed and are looking for some more savory options in the city of brotherly love, Guy Fieri’s got ya covered.
