Amber Noon's Dr. Erum Ilyas Shares Her Favorite Places to Go and Things to Do

By the Editors | August 4, 2020 | People


CEO and founder, AmberNoon,;

1. Eagle Village Shops

My favorite part of shopping is the experience. I like to browse through boutiques for unique finds and then catch a bite to eat with friends. The experience of shopping is what makes Eagle Village Shops a perfect destination. 503 Lancaster Ave., Wayne,

2. Kabobeesh

I crave South Asian food and find I enjoy it the most when the experience is somewhat authentic. This is also the only restaurant I have been able to find in Philadelphia with my favorite dessert: falooda, a unique ice cream specialty. 4201 Chestnut St.,

3. Ultimate Frisbee

I have three teenagers who love sports and love to support their Philadelphia teams. That being said, the time to get in and out of a football or baseball game with parking and traffic can make it a full-day event to go to a game! The Philadelphia Phoenix is Philly’s Ultimate Frisbee franchise and play most of their games right outside the city. It’s fun for the whole family.

4. Twelve Gates Arts

This local gallery gives a voice to modern and contemporary art by South Asian artists. It’s a rare and unique genre to see on display and a true gift to have this resource to add to Philadelphia’s diverse cultural scene. 106 N. Second St.,

5. Skin the Surface Podcast

I love podcasts but find that if they are too long I cannot always finish an episode in one sitting. This podcast is great because it is focused and gives helpful tips and information in a conversational format that’s easy to understand. And, it started here in Philadelphia!
