North River

North River

I was excited to try North River when their PR team invited me in for a meal. I tapped Cheese to join me, as he’s one of the best press meal companions – I get to pick everything and he doesn’t complain! Not about my choices, anyway. Even when they’re weird. We started with an order of meatballs, which their website no longer has as just meatballs but instead as sliders… these were tasty, soft and well-seasoned. Steak tartare, which is also no longer on the menu… a shame, since those little potato slices on top? LOVE. The tartare itself [...]

Pig & Khao

Pig & Khao

Two months ago, it was time for the annual FBM Cookie Swap*! This year, I invited BFF to join, with Hungry and Dessert Zombie per usual. DZ suggested Pig & Khao as our location, and I quickly agreed – we’d had Filipino food the year prior, and why not do that again? Sure to be pork-tastic! We started off with chicharron, served with coconut vinegar. I didn’t feel like I missed out on much by not being able to try the vinegar when everyone said it didn’t do much for the crispy, light, airy chicharron. Great snack to start the [...]

Otto – Feast of the Seven Fishes

Otto – Feast of the Seven Fishes

For many years now, I’ve often lamented the lack of my own Feast of the Seven Fishes. I’ve ogled and eyed, sighed and drooled over Otto’s until this year, I finally decided I was going to make a reservation before I even found someone to go with me! Serendipity, right? Right! Then the Stallion stepped in and invited himself to join me. I was especially excited to have him join me as his own family does a Feast of Seven Fishes every.single.year for I don’t know how many years, and he even helps make the feast happen. I initially had [...]

Todd’s Mill

Todd’s Mill

Months upon months ago now, I was invited to a press meal at Todd’s Mill. I forget what exactly they were unveiling, and I unfortunately forgot my dSLR as it was rather dark in there, but I so thoroughly enjoyed my meal there that I really have to share with you these dark and terrible photos. I should mention that the soundtrack during dinner was AWESOME, and I totally complimented the chef for picking the songs. I forget his name now. He was nice and into 80s music, which worked out well for me. I like 80s music. Our first course: [...]

Philly w Dessert Zombie

Philly w Dessert Zombie

Many moons ago, Dessert Zombie and I discussed going to Philly. In fact, we even “tried” once – back when I still had Blue Thunder – getting in my car and driving through the city, but due to a late start, excess traffic, and other snafus, it took something like 45 minutes just to cross town. So we decided to give up and stayed in the city, planning to attempt the trip another time down the line. We were determined to eat! and finally, one weekend in April, we made our way to the city of Brotherly Love. First stop:  one [...]
