Behold: The Cheeseburger Hoagie

I have what I hope will be a significant cheesesteak outing planned for this weekend. But in the meantime, the thought of another long-roll sandwich that I haven’t had in quite a few years lodged itself in the part of my brain that focuses on food – which admittedly doesn’t leave much room for otherContinue reading “Behold: The Cheeseburger Hoagie”

A Welcome Midweek Brunch in Media, PA

It was a banner day in that I succeeded in knocking two items off my very long lists of restaurants to try and foods to eat. The former was Bittersweet Kitchen of Media, PA, the county seat of Delaware County. The latter was the classic American breakfast of biscuits topped with sausage gravy.  I liveContinue reading “A Welcome Midweek Brunch in Media, PA”

Wolf’s Superior Sandwiches: Another Stellar Steak

That mini cheesesteak hiatus I mentioned at the end of my last post didn’t materialize. The lunch plans I had for today fell through, so it was on to Plan B, which was to try one of the highly rated cheesesteaks in my area that I haven’t sampled yet. I didn’t want to drive tooContinue reading “Wolf’s Superior Sandwiches: Another Stellar Steak”

A Return to Old-School Cantonese

Incredibly, for the second Sunday in a row, my wife asked if I’d like to accompany her on an errand and suggested I pick a place for us to grab a bite to eat in the vicinity of where we’d be. There are few words I enjoy hearing more than any combination that adds upContinue reading “A Return to Old-School Cantonese”

A Between-Cheesesteaks Chinese Food Interlude

My wife said the magic words to me Sunday: “Would you like to go to Trader Joe’s tonight? You can pick a place for us to have dinner near there.” I never need to be asked something like that a second time.  Media is the county seat of Delaware County, Pennsylvania. It’s got a niceContinue reading “A Between-Cheesesteaks Chinese Food Interlude”

The Art of Sundae and Milkshake Preparation

I’ve written a couple posts that showed off my ice cream sundae-making capabilities, including one centered on a hot-fudge brownie sundae. There was another piece in which I briefly put the spotlight on Barone’s Italian Water Ice & Ice Cream of Drexel Hill, PA. My wife and I returned there this evening. The experience leftContinue reading “The Art of Sundae and Milkshake Preparation”

Back to Johnny Paisano’s for a Family Dinner

My regular readers may recall that I’ve already posted about Johnny Paisano’s, a casual yet charming Italian restaurant in my area. That earlier report was on lunch with a friend. I returned to Johnny’s with my wife’s family for an early Saturday dinner to celebrate her birthday and also – belatedly – Mother’s Day. WeContinue reading “Back to Johnny Paisano’s for a Family Dinner”

Lunch and Bowling for My Wife’s Birthday

I was somewhat surprised when my wife requested that we go bowling and out to lunch for her birthday – at least the bowling part was surprising. That’s an activity I would normally suggest. But when my wife says, “Let’s go bowling, Dude,” I’m not about to refuse; especially on her birthday. So we returnedContinue reading “Lunch and Bowling for My Wife’s Birthday”

LaSpada’s Original Steaks & Hoagies on MacDade Boulevard

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”

A Beast of a Sandwich: Delco’s Original

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”
