There may be plenty of ramen shops around town, but Koi Kawa’s pork ramen is truly impressive. With both a pork-flavored broth and slices of pork sitting on top of noodles, this generous serving is plenty flavorful.

While most people would say to no to freshly made convenience store food, you should always say yes to Gino’s. Go for classics cold sandwiches or a hot sub. You have plenty of options, but you should definitely consider the Philly cheesesteak, a pastrami sandwich or the chicken salad sandwich.
