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

Event Review: Bubby’s Cook-Off, Philly’s Premier Kosher Food & Wine Event

Tasty Vittles: Food Should Taste Good Tortilla Chips

I was excited when Food Should Taste Good reached out to say they wanted to send me some samples. Already a big fan of their products, I was especially excited to try their Harvest Pumpkin tortilla chips because I’m pretty much a fool for anything pumpkin related this time of year. They also sent a bag of Sweet … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Day Buffet at Bistro St. Tropez

Hey, that rhymes! Anyways… my friend Melanie, her Dad, and I checked out Bistro St. Tropez for Thanksgiving dinner. It was $35/per person (plus drinks, tax, and gratuity) and I felt that it was worth it! I am disgustingly full as I type this. I will jot down the menu below and add commentary on … Continue reading

Fried Flounder Hoagie FTW!

I’ve been living in Newbold/Point Breeze for 7 months now. I’ve passed by 16th Street Seafood and had been curious about it. While I’m not a huge seafood fan, I do love fish – fresh, fried, baked, raw. Yummy! Anyways, I was not in the mood to make lunch today and this place immediately came … Continue reading

Rieker’s Prime Meats!

I work five blocks from one of Philadelphia’s hidden treasures, Rieker’s Prime Meats, a German butcher and deli. Rieker’s is located in Fox Chase, a section of Philadelphia nestled between Elkins Park and Northeast Philly. I feel incredibly lucky to work so close to this unique place. Not only do they make the wursts, sauerkraut, … Continue reading

Restaurant Review: Azul Cantina – Gayborhood

A fellow Philly Grubber had invited me out to dinner to welcome me back to Philadelphia. She suggested Azul Cantina on the corner of 10th & Spruce (across from Kanella’s), on the eastern edge of the Gayborhood. Mexican is not on my list of favorite foods because it often contains dairy products which are a … Continue reading
