Onion bagels

Rolings in Elkins Park by the train station, South Street bagels and the bagels at 4th street deli are all good and have real onions and lots of them - also the bakery at 3rd and Poplar that I am drawing a blank on their name right now.

Today is National Empanada day!

Well, just FYI, I got empanadas at Sazon along with some other tummies. Not S Philly but on my way home from work and delicious!

Today is National Empanada day!

But it seems to me most places only make them on weekends here in South Phila. Any good Wednesday empanada places??

Special occassion/dress up restaurant in Center City Philadelphia

How about Le Cherie? I haven't been yet but I think it would fit in this category

Anything new in Reading Terminal?

I have had their cured meats and pates and have loved them!

Where Can I Buy Stem Ginger in Syrup?

Have you asked at Jonathan's? They have 'restarted" carrying products on request a few times.

Dinner off the 95 between Princeton and Central Philadelphia?

This place was just written up on Philly.com - has anyone ever been? It is just off the Cottman Ave exit of I95 as well. http://www.philly.com/philly/columnis...

South Philly April

I wanted to suggest South Philly Tap Room but hesitated because I think a hound posted recently that things are not as good as they were previously? and how about P.O.P.E.?

We were there in June 2014 with two out of town foodies and we all enjoyed our meals immensely. I cant recall exactly what we had - we had just gotten married at city hall - but we all raved.

Where to buy cheese curds?

Valley Shepard Creamery in the Reading Terminal Market has them. Fair Food Farmstand, also in the RTM, has them sometimes - not sure who supplies them, it might be someone closer to you.

Food storage Russian roulette: what's your riskiest food safety gamble that went okay?

Cream of crab soup. Eaten at 8PM. Remainder left out over night (approx temp 62 F) and not refrigerated until 9AM. Ate it, as did others in my household (full disclosure of course, adults) no problems!

Where to find Bamba, the Jewish peanut snack

This has been all over the news the last few days because it has been a big piece of figuring out peanut allergies in children - Israeli children have far fewer peanut allergies apparently because they eat these from s very early age

Caveat: I really wanted a weekend, so I didn't ask too much about weekdays except Thursdays.

What to do in Philadelphia this weekend?

Check out Fair Food Farms for locally sourced products - produce, meats, pickles, cheeses (some exceptional ones), dairy, honey, etc. Also Valley Shepard Creamery makes some mean grilled cheese sandwiches with their own and other carefully curated cheeses as well as having those cheeses available for purchase.

Weekend in March

If you are interested in cookware it might be worth a trip to the Italian Market (9th Street mostly between Christian and Washington) There is Fante's Cookware http://www.fantes.com/about and an array of butchers, Cheese shops (Claudio's and the original DiBruno Brothers) produce and now Mexican vendors - including an amazing tortillaria.

One bottle of wine to take to the Farm and the Fisherman?

Good idea, Boognish. Sadly, I don't have time to get there today.

One bottle of wine to take to the Farm and the Fisherman?

I was leaning toward a pinot noir - I have a couple of very nice ones. With this weather I am leaning more toward meat than fish, but the menu they currently have posted is more seafood heavy. We may just have to break down and bring two bottles. And no, we havent been there before and I will be getting the beet dish - that much I know!

Szechuan reviews: Four Rivers and E Mei from Philly Chinatown

Valley Sheppard in the RTM is now making a Gouda like cheese with Sichuan peppercorns that is addictive!
