PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Noni Purwaningsih, a waitress at Roe (top photo), explains this Old City restaurant at 138 Chestnut Street has taken over the old location of Zento, which moved up the street.

“We’re kind of different because we have Thai (food), not only Japanese,” she tells KYW Newsradio.  The restaurant bills itself as “Thai and Japanese contemporary.”

Some Thai favorites?

“We have pad thai and we have drunken noodles, and different kinds of curry — green curry, red curry, penang curry…” she says.

Marisa McClellan is a Philadelphia-based author and blogger.  Her new book, Food in Jars (the same name as her blog), is about canning:

“Jams, jellies, pickles, chutney, tomatoes — which are particularly seasonal this time of year — peaches, things like that.”

And speaking of canning, Percy Street Barbecue general manager Aric Ferrell says his restaurant at 9th and South Street has been named by craftcans.com as having the largest selection of canned craft beers in the country.

“We’re at approximately 108 at the moment,” he says.  “We have a lot of local ones from Lancaster — Lancaster Brewing seems to be popular.  We have Sly Fox, we have a lot of cans from all over the country.”
