There is, quite literally, a “food holiday” for everything, which can make being a “foodie” fun or stupid. This Wednesday, November 2nd, is National Deviled Egg Day.
Personally, I love deviled eggs. They’ve come a long way from picnic favorite to a starring role on menus across the city. I get that they’re not for everybody texturally or diet-wise, but since it just happens to be their day in the food holiday spotlight tomorrow, I wanted to call out some Philadelphia restaurants doing the classic creamy concoction in interesting ways.
