BZMaestro Eats: Food, travel, and a little miscellaneous
I normally plan my cheesesteak outings anywhere from a few days to a week in advance – sometimes longer if a friend is joining me. But I went on a spur of the moment jaunt for a steak today. The chain of events that led to this bout of spontaneity began with the dinner weContinue reading “LaSpada’s Original Steaks & Hoagies on MacDade Boulevard”
I’ve posted a few times on Delco Steaks. One of their several locations is only about 10 minutes from me, and they’re very good. But there is another, unrelated place further west in Chadds Ford, Delaware County, PA, called Delco’s Original Steaks & Hoagies. Their steaks get some tremendous raves on Facebook. They also hadContinue reading “A Beast of a Sandwich: Delco’s Original”
While struggling a bit with what subject I should address in a new Top Ten list, it occurred to me that since I’ve already posted on my ten favorite films, I may as well move over to the small screen and address TV shows. These are not my picks for the ten best shows ever;Continue reading “My Ten Favorite TV Shows”
South Philadelphia has more classic-looking cheesesteak stands and is more associated with the sandwich than any other part of the city. While most of the well-known steak shops in other neighborhoods, as well as those in the suburbs, have indoor service, South Philly specializes in walk up stands, where customers order at a window whileContinue reading “A New Old-School Steak Stand in South Philly”
My last post was on a sandwich known to be loved by The King. Today, I’m moving down the line of succession to the Prince; the simple title used by some devotees of Steve’s Prince of Steaks. I was one of those fans of the Prince for a fairly long time. In fact, their steaksContinue reading “The Prince Still Reigns”
Elvis Presley was the king of both Rock ‘n Roll and late-night sandwiches. It’s long been well known that his favorite snack was peanut butter and banana sandwiches grilled in copious amounts of butter. This delicacy also happens to be right up my alley, so I make it periodically, including today. I used to imagineContinue reading “God Bless The King”
I didn’t acquire a taste for Indian food until in my late 30s. It wasn’t on my radar while growing up in the Philly suburbs. There may have been an Indian restaurant or two in Center City back in those days, but my family generally opted for Chinatown when eating downtown. When I started workingContinue reading “Back to Center City for a Thali Lunch at Veda”
Being Jewish, I didn’t eat much ham while growing up. My family didn’t keep kosher – nor do I as an adult. But while we ate bacon and plenty of Chinese food that contained pork, ham just wasn’t on our radar. We are people of the brisket; which includes corned beef and pastrami. I believeContinue reading “Smoking Pre-Cooked Ham”
As promised in a recent post on my pizza roots, I returned to Semolina Pizzeria in Southampton, Pennsylvania – the town in which I grew up – after finding out the hard way last week that they are closed Tuesdays. My friend, Andy, and I met there for lunch today – a Thursday. It’s aContinue reading “Semolina Pizzeria of Southampton, PA”
Beethoven, Mozart and Bach have had the strongest support for GOAT among composers for a fairly long time – I’m a Beethoven man. But there are others whose music is hugely popular among classical music lovers. Among them, Gustav Mahler and Anton Bruckner have come to hold a special place for legions of fans, especiallyContinue reading “Mahler and Bruckner Starter Recordings”
