A Taste of Kensington’s Past from Dilauer Ibisi

We told you that the Ibisis were deeply rooted in South Kensington. Since the first family member came here from Turkey to pursue the American Dream, his children and grandchildren have been following in his footsteps to pursue their passions.

For Dilauer Ibisi, that was the “Munch Mobile” food truck you can see him lovingly cleaning on N. 3rd Street. Snapped in 1985, he was clearly a pioneer in Philadelphia’s trademark street food scene!
