Back when Rick’s Steaks had a stand at the Reading Terminal Market it was the only place inside the market to get a cheesesteak. But without an exclusive vendor, you can now get cheesesteaks at seven locations inside the market, eight if you include the pork cheesesteak at Wursthaus Schmitz. So with this explosion of cheesesteak options, Team Foobooz sets out to find the best cheesesteak at the Reading Terminal Market.
For how often they are used, we don’t give condiments as much attention as they deserve. Salad isn’t complete without dressing, it’s not turkey without gravy, and what’s tuna salad without mayonnaise?
Elizabeth Halen, who runs Flying Monkey Bakery at Reading Terminal Market, is all about condiments, which is why she’s opening a new shop at the market—Condiment. Condiment is an innovative business that will offer customizable foods like freshly-churned butter with over a dozen add-in options including garlic, dill, red pepper, cinnamon, and honey, and whipped-to-order mayonnaise that can be customized into various flavors. They’ll also offer their own ketchup, mustard, salad dressings, hummus, and gravy, among plenty of other condiments, like dessert sauces including their own hot fudge, chocolate syrup, and marshmallow sauce.
