Philadelphia Owns List of Outrageous Foods

americas-most-outrageous-foods-400The web site CityPASS has created an infographic of the fifteen most outrageous foods in America. And in what must be a point of pride, three of the dishes are from Philadelphia.

PYT, which is the brightest lightbulb for list making moths that there is, makes the infographic for its “Sarancha Burger,” a burger doused in a combo of Sriracha, Ranch and Salsa. Varga Bar’s crab fries, that actually come with crab, also make the list. And thirdly, a food so outrageous it requires two stops, the Philadelphia Taco. The Philadelphia or sometimes, South Street Taco starts with a Jim’s Steaks cheesesteak that is then wrapped with a giant slice of Lorenzo’s Pizza around it.
