Annotated Menu: Scott Schroeder at American Sardine Bar


According to chef Scott Schroeder, there are two reasons why his Point Breeze joint, American Sardine Bar, became the place it is. First, because he didn’t think the world needed another gastropub (especially one so close to the gastropub he already runs, South Philly Tap Room). And second, because he felt confident that “people will go into bad neighborhoods for a good sandwich.” Here’s what he’s using as bait.

    Perhaps my pallet is just not refined, but I tried the sardine sandwich when they unveiled the American Sardine Ale and it was by far the most disgusting, fishiest thing I have ever put in my mouth.
    On the other hand, I go absolutely crazy for the Walt Wit sandwich and Onion Rings….seriously the best onion rings in town.

    As a meat lover, I’ll admit that the pamboza is one of my all-time favorites at the ASB. I second the awesomeness of their onion rings and the breakfast fries at brunch are incomparable to any other breakfast potato I’ve ever tasted….
