Illadelph

blending and clipping ill+Philadelphia; noun; adjective
of or related to the city of Philadelphia
 
My favorite Illadelph spot is definitely Pat's King of Steaks, the best cheesesteak around.
Etymology : "Philadelphia" has been clipped to become "iladelph," which is blended with "ill" to become the term "illadelph." This is a very flexible word, as it can be used to describe something or as the something itself. The Roots, a legendary hip hop crew from Philadelphia, created this word, out of fondness for their city.
