RESTAURANT REVIEW: West Chester Restaurant Festival

Its the time were my hometown showcases its finest restaurants at the West Chester Restaurant Festival. (and definitely a place for foodie lovers to gather, like myself) Going on 34 years, this festival is a big attraction for all living in Chester County, PA, bringing more than 50ย  restaurants and food trucks from around the area.

The weather was not only gorgeous this year, but the different types of foods offered at this years festival surely impressed my stomach. Most dishes are about 5 bucks for a small portion. Some restaurants serve there most popular dishes or some will deliver new, specials specifically made for the festival. Festival goers vote throughout the day via text for the best appetizer and dessert. After walking the downtown streets of WC borough, you can relax while watching a culinary cook off battle between chefs.

This year I took many adventures in the food I tasted- everything from a simple gyro to a Koren Beef Taco. Here is a snap shop from some of the samplings I had this year!

Fresh Tomato Pie from Limencello’s Italian Restaurant. This is the hands down best Italian you will ever come upon in Chester County. Family owned, they bring the freshest and top quality to all of their dishes. At the end of your meal, enjoy a complimentary shot of limencello!
