Good food near West Chester University

you can't go wrong with High Street for lunch or dinner ......would also suggest Side Bar it is on Gay street and there is a parking lot right next to it great menu and relly good rotating beer selection ......Three little pigs probably the best soup in town on a regular basis ......Olive Branch is on the other end of Gay street but tasty tapas menu...Sarcones for the best sandwich in town

Dutch Crunch Rolls

I know I am in the land of hoagie rolls ...but I grew up in Northern California eating Dutch Crunch rolls ...if you are not familiar you need to have a sandwich on one at some point ....my question is does anyone know of a bakery locally that is making them ??

Anywhere to go for classic cocktails in Chester County

fresh juice may be hard to come by but as far as a drink .....the 4 Dogs is a really good bar for cocktails , tight bar inside , large outside area and decent size resaurant , staff pours a stiff drink , if you sit at the bar you will see most of the character and characters of Chester County stroll thru.....................

Village Whiskey - ever been?

well there is a way to enjoy the menu and the bar without the hassle ...go for lunch ..we went a few weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon and we had no issue at all getting a table ...it is a very small space and can not imagine if it were crowded and packed .....we got the duck fat fries with a short rib and they were really good , we also got a pulled pork sandwich it was very tasty .......walked across the street for gelato at Capogiro....good luck whatever you do

Looking for gochujang in Center City, or close by.

Since you don't have a car it seem the easy choice is the internet...found multiple sites , I know it stinks to pay shipping but it is an option....

Good BBQ in Philly or Wilmington?

maybe a little bit of a stretch but there are a few Amish meat counters at the Booths Corner Farmers market that smoke some meats and make really good bbq sauces and wings ......I also reccomend Jimmys for the pulled pork and agree that the cornbread is extremely dry ..the beans are great as is the dirty corn salad .......I was there a week or two ago and it was free PBR with every order night ...gotta love that
