Macaroni and Cheese in Ambler

Curious to hear your opinion, specifically on the Mac and cheese at lucky well. LOVED the roasted beet salad there, and liked the ribs (although prefer sauce to dry rub, so I'm not the best reviewer)- just found the Mac and cheese so very disappointing...

Macaroni and Cheese in Ambler

I found the Mac and cheese at Lucky Well to be devoid of flavor, and didn't even eat it. A friend thought that it was inedible. Stouffers would have been far better.

Birthday Cake

While I always enjoy the food at Zakes, I have always found the cakes to be disappointing. They look great, but the taste never lives up to the presentation.

TreVi is quite good- where Rizzo's used to be. Great pastas and pizza. A bit pricey for entrees though- but great quality.

Biriyani Bowl Hatboro

While I loved Biryani Bowl in Hatboro, my husband and I were extremely disappointed with the lunch buffet at their place in North Wales. Probably good for dinner and ordering off the menu, but not at all impressed with the quality or selection at the buffet. We'll keep going to Hatboro.

Trader Joe's Yea/Nay Thread - 1st quarter 2012 [old]

I love the Speculoos as well, but can't seem to find a place for it other than eating it by the spoonful (which is yummy by itself!). saw your post on clubtraderjoes for recipe ideas (THANKS!), but still searching for something that will work for me. Any ideas out there?

Discontinued at Trader Joe's (started 6/19/2011) [old]

So jealous!! All of the TJs here have discontinued both and no longer have any of either product. You should stock up- esp on the pita puffs!!

I miss the PIta Puffs with Sea Salt, too- anyone ever seen them elsewhere??? My local store said they thought they were made just for TJ's. Also miss the cumin chickpeas in the microwavable pouch- good and easy. Waaaaaaah :(

Looking for great seeded rye bread

Kaplan's is definitely the "gold standard" for rye- exactly what I'm looking for. I have had pumpernickel from a Russian store in the NE (in a strip mall on Old Bustleton Ave off of Welsh- a few years ago), which I found quite good, but, the rye wasn't really to my liking. Will have to try Fresh Market- there is one in Horsham right by my house.

Again- I appreciate the comments and suggestions; very helpful.

Thanks! Had considered Ben and Irv's, but didn't think of Weinrich's for rye bread. I'll definitely check out the NE Philly places at some point.

Where to buy a turducken in philly?

I purchased one at the Fresh Market in Horsham- it was really easy to make, and the family liked it. Sure that the ones from South Philly and Reading Terminal are better, but this was pretty good. Getting another for T-giving.
