On Wednesday night, the night before the night before Christmas, Scott Schroeder and his Hungy Pigeon staff will be stirring at the Garage on East Passyunk. The ohsoclosetoopening restaurant (hopefully today’s inspections will be passed) will be offering a preview at the Garage starting at 6 p.m. There will be beer cocktails and food including “Christmas Pig Tacos” and marinated squash salad.
GrassKensington Quarters and Food Underground are “in da cart” tonight, September 28th at the Garage. And they’re going right at Cheesesteak Vegas with a locally sourced cheesesteak called the Friz Wit. The sandwich is a “tangle of grass fed, frizzled beef wit charred and caramelized onions served on a roll dripping with cheese sauce.” The cheese is from Hidden Hills Dairy and Birchrun Hills Farm, the bread is from Washington Avenue’s Ba Le Bakery. The 100% grass fed beef comes from Kensington Quarters and Food Underground is handling the preparation.
Cheesesteaks are $10 and go on sale at 6 p.m. If you’re from the hospitality industry, let them know and they’ll knock a buck off.

Tonight, chef Billy Riddle will be manning the cart at the Garage, serving up pork sandwiches for the hungry and the hot. Riddle is currently a chef at Townsend, and has had stints at Volver and Ela.
Stop by and play some Skee-Ball, crack open a can of beer and eat Riddle’s pork sandwich. And for the vegetarians, Riddle promises something for you too.

Brick & Mortar (ex-Franklin Mortgage partner Mike Welsh’s new spot) is expected to open sometime in March. But if you want a little preview of what’s to come in the Goldtex building, check out the Garage tomorrow, February 24, beginning at 5 pm because that’s when chef Brian Ricci will be in the house giving a little preview.
Tonight, Friday, December 5th, Jamonera will be taking over the food cart at the Garage. Chef Lindsay McClain of Randy and the King and Andy Stahl of Jamonera are serving up short rib sliders and sweet potato sliders (add a fried quail egg if you so desire), potato pancakes, and Barbuzzo favorite, salted caramel budino.
All items are under $6 and the Garage will begin serving up the tiny buns and bites at 6 p.m.
Poi Dog will be whipping up a full menu, complete with bibingka and curry rice made with fancy Green Aisle ingredients. The Filipino food will be available from 6:30 p.m. until 10 p.m.
And of course, we just happen to have the full menu for tonight’s festivities. Check it out below:
Chef Lindsay McClain, from Jamonera (and former Chopped champion), is bringing her game to the Garage tomorrow and will be serving completely gluten-free Seoul Food this Thursday, starting at 6 p.m.
The all-Korean menu will include Korean pork tacos, vegetarian Korean shiitake tacos and kimchi fried rice, as well as Barbuzzo‘s legendary (and very non-Korean) budino, for dessert.
The event is a first-come first-served type deal, so you’d better get there as soon as work lets out and grab your tacos and budino before they’re gone.
This evening, Soom Foods, the Philadelphia-based, women-owned business of three sisters— Shelby, Jackie and Amy is going to be in the food cart at the Garage on Passyunk Avenue. They will be serving a Middle Eastern street food menu of dishes like sabich, a traditional eggplant pita sandwich and a spiced lamb dish. All dishes will feature Soom Foods Tahini and for dessert, they’ll be offering samples of their Chocolate Sesame Butter, which they are describing as similar to Nutella with only three ingredients and only seven grams of sugar.
The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and runs till the food runs out.
