Philadelphia is a quintessentially American city. We have the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the Betsy Ross House. Even more important, we have some of the best pies in the country — and there is nothing more American than pie. Here are six of the best places in Philly to get a slice.
Editor’s Note: Whenever we get a fresh body added to the team here at Foobooz World HQ, the first thing we ask them to do is create a six-pack for us. It can be about something you like to eat, we say. About something you like to cook. New Foob-tern Regan Abato went another way. She wanted to talk about what she likes to drink.
I think Regan is going to fit in here just fine…
Lately, Philadelphians seem to be obsessed with cocktails. And not just any cocktails, but drinks with outlandish infusions, unusual flavors and ingredients someone who was never a bartender probably never heard of. With these crazy concoctions popping up at almost every bar in town, I started thinking about something a little simpler. While a margarita’s endless options can be dizzying, it is also a totally approachable drink that can be great in any form.
So with so many drinks and so few happy hours, here’s a six pack of some of the best margaritas in Philadelphia you need to try right now.
There are only a few foods that one can happily eat for every meal and pancakes are one of them. Maybe it’s because lasagna for breakfast doesn’t flow as well, but pancakes for dinner is never a bad idea. No matter what time it is, pancakes can always be the answer to the question of “What would make me happy right now?” And here’s a list of some of our favorite spots to get the hot and fluffy dish.
After trying a juice cleanse for a whole 23 minutes, I realized something quite remarkable: milkshakes taste a lot better. And though it may be wishful thinking to wait for a study that proves milkshake cleanses are healthy, I will most certainly do that waiting with a shake by my side. And what better time to enjoy one than during the summer when birds are chirping, kids are playing and you can be slurping. Here’s a list of some of our favorite spots for a treat that’ll make you question why juice cleanses are even a thing.
Philly has a long history of candymaking, and we have our fair share of excellent chocolatiers. So while yes, this is a good city to live in if you’re a cheesesteak junkie, and a great place for pizza addicts, it also ain’t bad for those with a wicked sweet tooth.
A few months ago, we detailed all the best places to buy candy and sweets in Philly. We also listed the three local desserts you have to try before you die. But neither of those lists focused solely on chocolate, and since there’s apparently some kind of holiday tomorrow during which the exchange of chocolate (and jewelry and, occasionally, shots) for sex is the traditional method of celebration, we here at Foobooz World HQ figured a list of where to find the best chocolates in Philadelphia might be in order.
It’s a six-pack of ways to amp up your Super Bowl party with special takeout offers from Philadelphia restaurants.
Sometimes we just crave paella. The mix of spices, fresh seafood and rice is a dish that works no matter the weather. So here are six paella dishes in and around Philadelphia that deliver.
I recently had some friends from California in town and they were wondering where to go to get some 100% legal Foie Gras in Philadelphia. So I came up with this list of traditional and creative foie gras dishes.
It’s Fall and apples are springing up on menus all around town. Here are six apple dishes or drinks that we’re coveting.
Put down the white bread and step away from the Kraft singles—we’ve found a list of stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches so loaded and gluttonous that they definitely aren’t your average comfort food must-haves.
These aren’t your mom’s grilled cheeses, and you know what? They aren’t even sandwiches you want to tell your mom about because you know she’ll start jabbering about silly things like cholesterol and pesky little heart attacks.
These sandwiches, stuffed with multiple meats and cheeses and standard menu items squished together between different breads slathered with different types of butters and sauces, are stuffed with a dictionary of culinary bad words: fat, bacon, cheese, grilled, fried, baked, crispy, oozing, dripping, melting…
You don’t have to be in a bad mood to eat them, but you’ll definitely feel happier once you’ve started in on any of these six stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches:
