Aksum is a Mediterranean BYOB in West Philly with things like a vegetable tagine served over couscous that’s one of our favorite vegetarian dishes in the city, and an especially large lemon caper chicken dish for when you’re extra hungry. It’s super versatile and affordable, so you can use it for everything from a casual weeknight date to a dinner with your visiting in-laws.
