Creative Snacking At Snackbar
Craig LaBan checks out Rittenhouse Square’s avant garde munchie hangout, Snackbar.
Among the hits are his twist on smoked fish and eggs, which presents seared fresh trout beneath soft-scrambled eggs enriched with hickory-smoked cream. Pork tenderloin brined for a day in white beer is an amazingly tender fulcrum for two extremes – an earthy spoonful of amaranth-grain porridge on one side, a richly dark pork jus lightened with cranberries and hibiscus tea on the other. His boneless chicken wings, slow-cooked for five hours in garlicky olive oil, then slicked with an Asian black bean barbecue sauce, are one of the catchiest haute-bar foods around.
