Back to My Pizza Roots

When dining out, I try to always have a Plan B ready in case my original plan doesn’t come to fruition. I’ve had more than a few occasions over the years when a restaurant at which I intended to eat was closed for one reason or another. Yesterday was one such occasion. I had intendedContinue reading “Back to My Pizza Roots”

Delco Steaks: Avoiding the Soggy Roll Problem

Delco Steaks’ reputation and popularity have been growing lately. They are in expansion mode and even have a stand at the arena where the Sixers and Flyers play. I’ve reported on them a couple times already; once each for their original Broomall spot and the newer Ridley location. But I didn’t feel I was gettingContinue reading “Delco Steaks: Avoiding the Soggy Roll Problem”

Eating Closer to Home

I’m back to follow up on Tuesday’s post, which was a hodge-podge of partial trip reports. Today, I’ll focus on food I’ve enjoyed and photographically documented in my home region. Most of these meals go back to before the creation of this blog. It’s too bad I couldn’t see into the future well enough toContinue reading “Eating Closer to Home”

On the Road: The Leftovers

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any trip reports; be they old or new. After going through my online photo archives, I unfortunately determined that I don’t have any other vacations documented well enough to do a comprehensive report. But I do have some odds and ends from various trips and decided to combineContinue reading “On the Road: The Leftovers”

Ten Defunct Food & Drink Products I Miss

Would you be surprised if I told you in advance that each and every product on this list was crawling with sugar? Would you expect anything less from me? Some of these have nostalgic value going back to my youth. Others are from more recent times. But I loved them all. Häagen–Dazs Five: Lemon: IContinue reading “Ten Defunct Food & Drink Products I Miss”

Phil & Jim’s Cheesesteaks: The Sum of its parts

I gave credit to Jim Pappas and his Cheesesteak Adventure blog in a couple of my early cheesesteak posts back in September of last year. He is currently running his third annual March Cheesesteak Madness contest, which has local judges picking the best cheesesteak in the Philly region. There are 64 sandwiches broken down intoContinue reading “Phil & Jim’s Cheesesteaks: The Sum of its parts”

A Tale of Two Cheesesteaks: Jersey Style

After threatening to do so in a post a couple weeks ago, I finally crossed the Delaware today – not to fight Hessian mercenaries, but to eat cheesesteaks. Granted, like General Washington and his troops on that fateful night, I didn’t venture very deep into New Jersey to take care of business.  While most ofContinue reading “A Tale of Two Cheesesteaks: Jersey Style”

Johnny Paisano’s of Springfield, PA

Johnny Paisano’s was one of the first cheesesteak joints that I reported on here. I loved the first steak that I took out from them, but there was an issue with the second one. It was assembled haphazardly, with the meat and cheese distributed very unevenly. I had a feeling that was not their normContinue reading “Johnny Paisano’s of Springfield, PA”

It’s About Time: Curly’s Creations of Levittown, PA

I struggled a bit with how to headline this post. It includes reports on three different cheesesteak shops I’ve eaten at over the past couple days, one of which was a second visit to the place that served the cheesesteak I picked as the best I ate during 2021. But one of the two sandwichesContinue reading “It’s About Time: Curly’s Creations of Levittown, PA”
