What you'll find: Their motto is "globally inspired gourmet comfort food. " Their menu is basically pork, pork and more pork, with the perk that it's hormone-free and organically pastured, from Leidy's, in Souderton. Come hungry: This is no place for dieters. And better get the stain-stick ready. Sandwiches come heaping, dripping and greasy - in the best possible way. The details: The Western is smoked pork, sharp cheddar cheese, thick-cut bacon and barbecue sauce ($9); Penguin's Pub is smoked pork, provolone, sautéed onions and jalapeño relish ($9)

What to eat : You really can't go wrong with any choice on the "Korean with a twist" menu, which is why Ka'Chi is one of this Truck Stop reviewer's favorite spots in the city. The details: The spicy pulled-pork sliders with pickled cucumbers (two for $7) hit the spot, but Ka'Chi also sells lots of Bulgogi (beef) and soy-ginger chicken tacos (one for $3 or three for $8) and rice bowls ($8), made with red cabbage and vinaigrette slaw. Get a side of cheese fries with house-made kimchi ($4)

WHEN PATRONS walk into Wazobia, a West African restaurant specializing in the comfort foods of Nigeria, many greet the owner in the Yoruba language. "This is my countryman," owner Risikat Bola Jamiu, who usually goes by Bola, says of a man from the Ibo tribe. Jamiu is Yoruba but welcomes all three of Nigeria's major ethnic groups. Even her North Philadelphia restaurant's name is a combination of the words for "come in" from the three languages: wa in Yoruba, zo in Hausa, bia in Ibo. "We are all blended together as one Nigeria," Jamiu said Friday.

On a day with heat so punishing that even the shade offered little relief, sous chef Tom Sullivan found himself in a particularly unforgiving spot: manning the flaming grill for his restaurant's booth at this weekend's Taste of Philadelphia festival. "The heat, the smoke, you've just got to deal with it," said Sullivan, who would spend more than 15 hours this weekend at Penn's Landing roasting corn on the cob, chicken, sausages, and asparagus to represent the Twisted Tail, the Southern-style restaurant at Second and Lombard Streets where he works.

People started lining up outside SEI's sprawling headquarters in Oaks even before Thais Viggue and her sunflower yellow Dia Doce cupcake truck rolled onto the campus. Dave Bell got there 15 minutes early so he could be first, because, he said, he'd seen the line "go all the way down the road. " He ordered a half-dozen of the $3 treats - three Black Magic, one churro, and two key lime - for himself and some friends. It was just a couple of years ago that a customer like Bell would have to drive all the way to West Philly's college campuses or the hipster mecca of Northern Liberties to indulge in the dining craze of the 2010s - gourmet food trucks.

CITY OFFICIALS yesterday were unsure exactly what led to a few tense moments for revelers at the end of the July Fourth festivities on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, but said reports of a shooting were false. The scare happened during the fireworks show shortly after 11 p.m. A wave of people began running toward City Hall, causing others to flee. There were several reports on Twitter and YouTube of a shooting, but police refuted that. "From everyone that was out there, from what they observed, what they were able to see from being on location . . . from reviewing cameras, there's no indication there was any type of gunplay or gunshots," said police spokesman Lt. John Stanford.

A new kind of food truck is making its rounds in Camden. The Fresh Mobile Market, a community garden on wheels, made its first stop Wednesday at Mickle Tower, an affordable-housing high-rise for senior citizens near the waterfront. The refrigerated trailer, operated by the Camden City Garden Club, carries fresh seasonal produce and will drive to scheduled locations during the next year, including churches and community centers. Many residents in high-rise public housing don't have ready access to fruits and vegetables, said Mayor Dana L. Redd.
