Guy Fieri explores some of Philadelphia's food scene in the new episode of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives."
Three restaurants were featured on the episode, which premiered Aug. 21 on the Food Network. Hardena, an Indonesian restaurant in South Philly, Stogie Joe's, an American restaurant in Passyunk Square, and Gaul & Co. Malt House, a pub in Port Richmond, were the featured eateries.
It had been speculated on social media and in reports that three more Philly restaurants also would make the show – Farmer's Keep in Center City, Mom-Mom's Kitchen in Bridesburg and Woodrow's Sandwich Shop in Bella Vista. But they did not appear in Friday's episode, but it was not clear if they would be featured a future episodes.
Fieri visited the Philly area in early March to tape the episode, which shows the restaurants operating before the shut-down orders imposed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Philly restaurants will be able to resume indoor dining on Sept. 8.
The specific foods being featured on the episode have been kept secret. Hardena's owners posted on Instagram that the restaurant had to close for three days for taping – without disclosing Guy Fieri's visit.
