A couple months ago, we told you about the upcoming opening of Fox & Son Fancy Corndogs at the Reading Terminal Market. We didn’t have a lot of details then, but we did have the one fact that truly mattered: That there was a fancy corndog / poutine / funnel cake operation coming to the Market, which was, seriously, some of the best news of the winter.
So tell me, what’s the one bit of news that could be better?
That Fox & Son is open right now.
So we’ve already talked about the donuts that are coming your way. And yesterday, it was dim sum. And now? Well, how ’bout we add to the list Korean fried chicken, cheesesteaks, bubble tea, gyros, falafel and Thai-style ice cream?
I know, right? Sounds pretty good. Don’t you all wish you lived in UCity right about now?
Back in August of last year, the folks from Beiler’s Bakery (which I just mentioned in my very hungry, early morning post on how I am resolved to eat more pies this year, and also where to find the best ones) opened their first outside-of-Reading-Terminal-Market location on Harrisburg Avenue in Lancaster.
This was a pretty big deal, but buried inside that pretty big deal was an even BIGGER deal, which was that the family was planning on expanding again soon — this time in Philly, likely in University City.
Well, guess what? That’s exactly what’s happening. They have a space. They have a rendering (you can see it below). And, most important, they were talking about it on Facebook during the holidays, promising that it was going to be opening soon (“coming this winter,” specifically).
