  1. The roast pork Italiano sandwich is a study in flexibility and democracy. You can get Roberto Donna's fancy Italian chef take on it, with a fancy bread and the pork cut coarsely on the spot off a fresh roast. You can sit in comfy sports bar digs at Tony Luke's and leisurely savage their delicious, moist take on it, along with a good basket of cheese fries. Or you can go back to its roots and grab a pork Italiano at John's Roast Pork, which means it will be double-wrapped in papered foil and bagged, so you can take it back to your jobsite/dock/shipyard, or sit down at one of the picnic benches out front where, bundled up against the cold, you'll dig into this addictive heap of dripping-wet thinly-sliced pork on a slightly crusty seeded long roll. There are cheese choices, but you need the sharp provolone. There is no broccoli raab, only spinach, but I liked the effect even better. The meat rests soaking in its juices in a quarter pan on one corner of the grill, as do the greens, and they go onto the bread fairly wet. Soggy or not, I couldn't stop myself from hoovering the entire sandwich. Is it better than Tony Luke's? That's hard to say because they're both really satisfying, but yeah, I don't think I've ever torn into a pork sandwich as ferociously as the one from John's. Note that Snyder Ave. is currently closed for construction on the block immediately west of John's. You can still get there from the south, but if approaching from the west, you'll need to cut through the shopping center's two parking lots. Ω
  2. Hit this place up on recommendation from my fish purveyor, and had the best fish tacos of my life. Apparently the owner was a line cook at Vetri, and is from Puebla. We were the only ones there at 1pm on a Monday, except his Pat La Frieda driver who was delivering and also eating (smart man). It's on 6th and Oregon.
  3. Any recommendations for a casual restaurant for a solo diner near Methodist Hospital? It's on South Broad Street in South Philly. Recommendations for a solo diner (e.g., eating at the bar) a plus. Oh, and it's for my martini-loving mother so BYOBs are NOT a plus. --- [The following posts have been split into separate threads: Bob and Barbara's Lounge (Waitman) L'Angolo (cjsadler)]
  4. Craig LaBan of Philly.com reviews Tiffin Bistro, Munish Narula's casual version of his Indian chain, Tiffin, at 1100 Federal Street in South Philadelphia - slideshow. Website
  5. I haven't been in years, but there is a small Italian in South Philly which I have loved every time I have been (3) called Criniti's. The first time I went the owner had only been living here from Sicily about 5 years. It is (was) true Southern Italian Nana cooking. Apparently they have moved into an old church since I last went but here is one link. Thay have received some pretty awesome reviews on the net so do a search also.
  6. Jason and I are thinking about heading to Philly this weekend to catch a game (probably the Saturday 4:05). We'll likely stay at the Holiday Inn by the stadium, and I imagine that we'll be able to eat and drink well enough at the ballpark, based on some comments above, that we won't need to go anywhere afterward for dinner. Yea/nay? Does anyone have a great brunch recommendation for Sunday AM? Location doesn't matter, as we'll be packed up and ready to come home, so we'll just park wherever we can. --- [The following posts have been split into separate threads: Criniti's (monavano)]
  7. There may already be a report on Citizens Bank Park somewhere up there ^. At 158 posts and growing, I couldn't check them all but hopefully this is of some help to someone. Was in Philly and caught the game tonight (we won! we beat Cliff Lee with 4 homeruns! off topic). It was my first time seeing a game there. $15 to park without a reservation. Easy Broad St subway line transit between the park and downtown. It's a very nice park with maybe top 3 in all MLB on food options. They've done a great job (better than Nats Park here) in really incorporating local businesses among the concessions. The overall design isn't as retro as Camden Yards, the Ballpark at Arlington, Coors Field, etc but, again unlike Nats Park (which is nice enough), Citizens Bank Park has some character. A few culinary highlights: - Bull BBQ. by ballpark standards, very respectable. ribs weren't dried out at all. sauce had some tang. slaw was fresh. baked beans respectable. And, no other than Greg Luzinski (the owner and hero of the 1980 LCS which sent the Phils on to their first World Series title) mans a booth there after checkout to meet, greet and sign. This place, at a ballpark no less, clearly takes some pride in what they're serving! Go figure. - Federal Donuts. along with NY's Donut Plant, these two seem top of the trendy donut heap at least in the eastern half of the country. Only 3 choices on donuts at the ballpark location: honey, cinnamon and strawberry. Surprisingly good given all the compromises necessary to serve hot and at high volume. Strawberry is a tad odd tasting. The other two are winners. Didn't try the chicken. - Tony Lukes. Yep, along with Pats two to avoid if you know the cheesesteak and roast pork sandwich scene in PHL at all. But, at Citizens, this is a major attraction and it is local. Got the roast pork. Thin slices but with good moisture, noticeably sharp provolone, equally penetrating rabe and a fairly soaked roll best to toss in favor of the fillings. Supposedly they have some decent kielbasa around the park as well but didn't try that. Likewise on a Harry Karas restaurant off left field. All told, a nice place to see a game and, despite the reputation of the locals, no problem at all to be one of the maybe 2% in attendance (around 34,500 total tonight) wearing Nats caps. But, wow do they hate Jayson Werth (and Bryce Harper), especially on nights like tonight when things didn't go their way.
  8. Bob and Barbara's Lounge. This place is for real -- even if last time I was there, an immaculately dressed family of French tourists came in, guidebook in hand, for the jazz. OK, maybe not for dinner. But for after.
