Dining hall food is alright but we all need a break from it sometimes. A lot of time the dining hall closes early, what do you do then? Below are 9 delivery spots that I tried during my freshman year at Temple and actually liked. I found a lot of these places from apps like Caviar, Grubhub, Postmates, and DIningin. These apps make it easy to order from smaller eateries like those listed below and more commercial food places as well.
1. Masala Kitchen: Kati Rolls and Platters
1211 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19107, United States
Phone: +1 215-309-3301
My go to place for late night ordering at Temple. I’ve never had anything I didn’t like from Masala Kitchen. Their rolls are so so good.
2. Iztaccihuatl Restaurant
1122 S 8th St, Philadelphia, PA 19147, United States
Phone: +1 215-467-1005
If you want traditional Mexican cuisine, look no further. So much food for the price. If you’re really hungry late at night, you will definitely be ready to conquer all the studying you have to do after ordering from Iztaccihuatl.
3. Fuji Sushi
2030 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19103, United States
Phone: +1 215-751-0939
Always super fresh, even late at night. You wouldn’t necessarily think of amazing sushi in Philly, but Fuji Sushi is proof!
4. Axis Pizza
20 S 36th St, Philadelphia, PA 19104, United States
Phone: +1 215-382-2199
If you’re looking for a quick slice of pizza late at night, Axis is the place to go. Its some of the best pizza around Temple. I highly recommend a slice of buffalo chicken, as featured above.
5. Rich City Chinese Restaurant
514-16 S 5th St, Philadelphia, PA 19147, United States
Phone: +1 215-923-2800
Everyone loves classic chinese food for take out. When you can’t stop thinking about great fried rice or noodles, give Rich City a call. You won’t be disappointed.
6. Falafel Hummus & Juice Bar
402 E. GIRARD AVE, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19125
Phone: +1 215-829-1500
Simple, inexpensive and satisfying. With lots of dips to choose from, you’ll find something you’re sure to like. They also have a wide range of juices to choose from.
7. Sakura Mandarin
1038 RACE STREET, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19107
Delivery: 1 215-829-1500
Whenever I order from Sakura, I ask for the steamed pork soup dumplings. Their menu is huge, so you are sure to find something you enjoy.
8. Catahoula Restaurant
775 S Front St, Philadelphia, PA 19147, United States
Phone: +1 215-271-9300
For something different than your usual pizza place, try Catahoula. They serve classic creole dishes, if you ever feel like trying the flavors of New Orleans, this is the place for you. They also have a great brunch menu, so if you’re ever recovering from a late night, call in!
9. Fez Moroccan
620 SOUTH 2ND STREET, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19147
Delivery +1 215-829-1500
Fez Moroccan has bold flavors to really spice up a long night of studying. The entrees can be a bit more expensive than some of the other restaurants on this list, but it is definitely worth it. I highly recommend trying their kabobs, and the different couscous dishes.
