earth,bread, brewery open in mt. airy

Although I have not been there yet, it seems th owners have put a tremendous amount of time and effort creating this place. I hope their efforts will be successfull. In this current climate of the economy it would be helpful to places such as this ,willing to, so to speak ,to put their necks out , for us in the foodie world, to support them.

Barry's Steaks - Review

I wrote a post a few months back asking "what the #@%%##@@!!!## has happened to D'alessandro's". And to say the least I was raked over the coals! Having been going there for close to forty years I knew something was up. All I have to say is that I no longer feel that I was going nuts. I WILL be going to Barry's as soon as I can.

Thank you,

what the #*#@**@@!$$? Has happened to D'Allesandro's Cheesesteaks?

Please let me explain my original post. I have been going to d'allesandro's for most of my life. My older brothers took me there for the first time in the mid 60's. Lets say about forty years of history. I personally Have have at least Five hundred " Cheese Steaks With sauce And Onions" , from them, since then! Please everyone go back and prove me wrong. I hope I am wrong, but what I got last night was not even close to what I have ever had as even close to bad. Plus ,please tell the women taking the orders that she needs to have an an enema before coming to work! What a sour puss! Sorry to be so blunt, but I am really dissapointed!

Trax in Ambler - Anyone ever been?

What does that mean? Have you ever heard anything bad about Trax? It sounds like you have an issue with them. I have been there several times and the food nothing short of highest quality, proper proportions, very well prepared, great food, period! Apparently I am not the only one who feels this way. Try getting a table soon. Good luck. You've blown our little secret. Oh, by the way, what's wrong with Ambler?

Philly Mag: Best of Philly

The Best of Philly is such a joke! It is just a marketing tool to get "Winners" to advertise in that rag. Clearly thave run out of material. Once they pick you, they hound you to pay them back for giving you such an honor. I know from personal experience.

Cake Restaurant

Better yet. The space formerly occupied by Cake is going to be the new home of "Top of the Hill Market and Deli". And the old space is going to be a FRESH SEAFOOD market! All will be managed by the same crew. BTW they have the best tomatoes and corn to be had! Hands down. Plus it is nice place to have lunch!

Anyone looking for Bobbi's Hummus?

I'm sorry to say, but, what is all the fuss about this hummus? You might as well eat raw cloves of garlic! I do like garlic, but this stuff is an absolute assault to the tastebuds.

Cheese in Philadelphia

Formaggio Piave is from the Piave river valley of Bellunao Italy. It is a wondurful cheese. Its taste resembles that of a young Parmigiano Reggiano. Try it with some speck.
