PYT Brings Back Its Thanksgiving Burger

We all know what a turkey burger is. This isn’t a turkey burger. This is PYT’s Thanksgiving Dinner Burger. For the fourth year the Northern Liberties extreme burger joint will be serving up this monster:

We start with a deep fried turkey leg meat patty, topped with homemade mashed potatoes, bacon stuffing and cranberry spread…with a side of hot turkey gravy to pour on as desired.

The PYT TDB is available for a limited time.

Noodles and Burgers – The Latest Craze?

There’s a new potential food craze sweeping the nation and its receiving its fair share of hype: noodles and burgers. In the tradition of the cronut and Luther Burger, seemingly incompatible foods are getting married into dishes that are making some rolling their eyes, and others foam at the mouth.

Brooklyn residents have already gotten a taste of this craze with The Ramen Burger. Created by ramen enthusiast and blogger Keizo Shimamoto, it debuted at Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg food fair. Its zeitgeist has extended to Good Morning America and blogs all across the virtual multiverse.

But you don’t need to travel to New York to get your noodle/burger fix. Philly’s own PYT boasts the Spaghetti Burger—a mozzarella-stuffed meatball patty smothered in red sauce and parmesan flakes smushed between crispy fried spaghetti, garlic butter buns.

And then there’s the Spaghetti Sandwich »

Philadelphia Named Number One Bacon City in USA

We don’t often give a damn about arbitrary lists from national web sites ranking Philadelphia near the top or bottom of some category. But when national real estate site, Estately ranked Philadelphia number one for bacon lovers. Well we admit, they had us.

Among the reasons given for ranking Philadelphia number one:

  • PYT’s bacon taco.
  • Cochon’s deep fried oysters with bacon aioli.
  • Jake’s Sandwich Board’s Turbacon sandwich.
  • And of course, actor Kevin Bacon and his father, city planner Edmund Bacon.

Sounds like solid math to us.

Four Local Restaurants on United States of Bacon Tonight

Tonight at 7 p.m. on Destination America, formerly Discovery Home & Leisure, is featuring four local restaurants on United States of Bacon. As you might expect there’s a ton of bacon on the show but we have to raise an eyebrow over the inclusion of McNally’s Tavern’s Schmitter. Surely a great gluttonous sandwich, but as the diagram above shows, bacon is not a normal part of the Schmitter. Now bacon is available for a dollar add-on, but who needs bacon when you already have steak, grilled salami, cheese, fried onions, tomatos, special sauce and even more cheese?
