According to the V Street Twitters, they’re doing Sichuan soft pretzels now, with black salt, Sichuan pepper and ginger mustard. They go in the oven at 5 o’clock and only come in limited quantities each night.
So yeah, you might as well just start lining up now. We’ll see you there.

Fork is already one of the best restaurants in the city–a place that’ll surprise you as well as feed you, and make you think (though not in any kind of annoying way) about where your food comes from and how it got from the field to the table.
That’s on a normal night. But if you’re down for some true culinary exploring, Eli Kulp‘s “Our Terroir” tasting menus are where it’s at. With these multi-course menus, Kulp and his crew are able to more deeply explore the links between Pennsylvania’s farms and its tables through the medium of food, and push the envelope even more than they already do during regular dinner service–a place where scallop crudo with fermented parsley, raw veal and tuna, and branzino with rice cakes and tamarind broth are just par for the course.
Anyway, the new Terroir menu is out now, and looks like a fascinating board. I’ll let them explain it all to you…

The event, presented by Foobooz features dishes from Philadelphia’s best restaurants – handpicked by Philadelphia magazine editor Food Editor Jason Sheehan. Tickets are now on sale and discounted through January 9th ($85 right now, $100 after January, 9).
It’s that time of the year, again. The gourmets in your life may already have everything, but they belong to a tribe that forever wants everything-plus-one. Here are a few ideas for how to treat your favorite foodie without (necessarily) breaking the bank.
The brand new Market at Maglio’s at 3632 S 3rd Street (3rd and Pattison) is offering a pound of sausage to the first 500 fans that present their Eagles tickets for this Sunday, December 14th. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
So before you park and tailgate, swing by Market at Maglio’s and pick up you hot or mild pound of sausage and then get that grill going. With its location close to the stadiums, and the market’s selection of sides, meats and cheeses, Maglio’s pre-game, might become a tradition.

In keeping with our pretty-much-unbroken streak of posting about Kevin Sbraga every day (no, seriously), we present you with this. A nice little peek into some recipe testing with Georges Perrier happening at Juniper Commons. According to Sbraga’s Twitter, this is all about “Making sauces with the master.”

The weekend ahead is, for some, sure to be jammed with early holiday celebrations, braving the retail bonanza, and imbibing and dining in a way befitting of a year rapidly drawing to a close. Local markets are holding down the fort in the form of nutritious, cruciferous veggies, apples and roots, but vendors are also sporting a celebratory sparkle and offering local gifts as well. Those listed below are but a few…
Arthur Cavaliere’s In Riva in East Falls turns three today. And the Italian restaurant and pizzeria is celebrating with $3 Margherita pizzas. From 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., just say “Happy Birthday” to your server and receive a pizza for just $3.
Limit one per table and not available for takeout.
Congrats to Cavaliere and In Riva for proving the riverfront location was not cursed but simply needed the right concept executed well.
