PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — KeVen Parker, who also owns Ms. Tootsie’s Restaurant on South Street, has taken over the former Delilah’s Soul Food stand at the Reading Terminal Market.  It’s refurbished and now called KeVen Parker’s Soul Food Café.

“The menu is a condensed version of Ms. Tootsie’s menu,” he tells KYW Newsradio.  “We have chicken and waffles, catfish, shrimp and grits, crabcakes of course, turkey chops, barbecue ribs, our cheesy-cheese macaroni and cheese, caramelized candied yams, collard greens, and the list goes on and on and on!  All the southern favorites.”

Meanwhile, Drew Crockett, owner of the University City Hub Bub coffee truck, has opened a non-mobile coffee shop at 1717 Arch Street in center city Philadelphia.

“The permanent location allows us to do a lot of things that we weren’t able to do in the truck,” he explains, “particulatly having a pour-over bar, which we didn’t have the space in the truck to do.  So that’s very exciting — and it gives us a home base.”
