A Look at Louie Louie Bistro & Bar

Louie Louie Bistro & Bar located at the Inn at Penn across from the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania opened a couple of months ago to much fanfare and with good reason. It is a truly stunning restaurant. The interior was designed by Philadelphia based Rohe Creative who … Continue reading

Banjara Indian Bistro in Chestnut Hill

This review was submitted by @GothLauren. Nestled in a little shopping center off of Bethlehem Pike and Germantown Avenue in Historic Chestnut Hill Philadelphia, Banjara Indian Bistro is a warm and inviting Indian BYO located at the top of the hill. Warm tapestries and beading invites the diner inside without feeling too overdone or garish. The menu … Continue reading

Ramen in Manayunk at @Ramen

This review was submitted by @GothLauren. @Ramen is a newish restaurant located at 4357 Main St in Manayunk serving a variety of ramen dishes. When you first walk in, you are greeted with a sparse, modern interior. The entryway is a collage of Japanese cartoons that open into dark wood and chalkboard walls. It’s a very simplistic set up with … Continue reading

Le Bec-Fin is Alive at Walnut Hill College

I used the site frequently when I lived in the city and it was always a good experience. Especially because it often opened up many delivery options. When Grubhub asked if we could … Continue reading

Local Vittles: Mompops Gourmet Frozen Pops from West Chester, PA

Like most local food products, I initially discovered Mompops on Twitter. Not sure if I started following them first or they started following me first, but they caught my attention either way. Finding dairy-free frozen treats always makes the lactose-intolerant in me happy! Last month when I was at Whole Foods Cherry Hill, I happened … Continue reading
