Does Wawa still have golden sauce for their hoagies?

Nevermind, it was Cattleman's Gold.

Does Wawa still have golden sauce for their hoagies?

I used to work in a Wawa years ago and I there was a golden colored sauce which went onto a few of the varieties of wraps. I believe it was called Cattlemans Ranch, but a quick google search didn't come up with anything.

Cooking Classes in South Jersey

In the Kitchen Cooking School in Haddonfield offers mostly one-day classes. Last time I checked there were some multiple day classes also though.

Rehoboth in October

Grub Grocery had a decent selection of cheese if I recall. Also the market which is right on the circle as you come in on Rehoboth Ave. which I can't recall the name of. Bin 66 in the building where Cultured Pearl is has a large wine cellar with a friendly staff.
For a special dinner, I would recommend Espuma hands down. There are plenty of great meals to be had in Rehoboth, but none come close to Espuma. The menu is always changing and we have never been disappointed by anything we've had. I highly recommend the Three Day Pork as an entree.

New Jersey Wines

I've been to a handful of wineries in South Jersey during some of the wine trail weekends. For the most part they have ok white/sweet wines; most of the reds are one-note. I'm by no means a wine snob or expert, but the only one that stands out is Amalthea Cellars in Atco. They actually have red wine that are comparable to wines I would get in store from the West Coast/S. America/Europe.

Good Grub & Brews in Old City?

The Irish Pol on third st. has a good variety of beers, their wall of taps has close to 40 most of the time. They are almost all craft beers or imports other than maybe yuengling/pbr. They do have food but its limited. Not many tables downstairs., but i think there is an upstairs, though i've never been. This is probably one of the only tolerable places in old city.

South Philly Brunch

My wife is doing the Broad St. Run on May 2nd and we are looking for somewhere to do brunch afterwards. I was thinking of the POPE or SPTR. Any opinions on these two or other suggestions? We would prefer someplace with alcohol. Thanks.

Cinnaminson - Where to eat?

Cinnaminson is not the best place to food other than chains and hoagie shops. If you're looking for a nicer dinner, I'd suggest Bacio. Its an Italian BYO, I'd say by far the best in town. I'm not sure if they do lunch. Whistler's Inn for a casual dinner. They have excellent wings, ribs and pulled pork. I believe they have their own smokehouse in the back. In the Heritage Square shopping center next to the Target there is Raj Palace which has a decent Indian lunch buffet, and Star Manti for Turkish.

Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Hamilton area

Our friends want to do a joint bachelor/bachelorette party; they live in the Hamilton area and wanted to do something in that area. I don't get up in that area very often so any suggestion would be appreciated. It will probably be around 30 people. Not looking for a sit-down dinner, something more casual. BYO is ok, live music and an outdoor area would be great. Thanks.

(not sansom street) oyster house - open yet?

Does anyone know what time they open on the weekends? I wanted to stop if for a pre-dinner cocktail before an early reservation elsewhere.

Fuji, in Haddonfield: Omikase Dinner

The Sea Scallop Teriyaki is probably my favorite scallop dish anywhere. The sauce is rich and complex, unlike any teriyaki I've ever had.

Best Place to try different Oysters

We are coming to SF Easter weekend for a few days from the Philadelphia area. We're looking for some places to try oysters that we can't get on the east coast. We'll be staying with a friend in the Presidio area and will have transportation. Looking for high-end and low-end suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Where can I buy Greek yogurt near West Windsor?

I would try the Wegman's in Princeton. I haven't gotten it there, but I have at the Cherry Hill location. It is in the organic refrigerated section, not with the other yogurts.

Indeblue (?) in Collingswood

We had take-out last week. We didn't have a menu so we walked in to order. The staff was extremely friendly, they insisted we sit at a table to look over the menu brought us water and a complimentary mango lassi, which was very good. We ordered the Lamb Rogan Josh which was excellent. The lamb was very tender and the sauce was well spiced. The baingan bartha was a bit bland. We sampled a couple of their breads, the lasooni naan was very good, while the roti was a bit tough. All in all it was hit or miss, but I would definitely return. There's much more on the menu I'd like to try.

Bridal Shower in So Jersey(Cherry Hill etc)

My wife had her shower at Caffe Aldo Lamberti Cherry Hill on Route 70. They have a large room to the side of the restaurant with its own bar. She was very happy with it.

Butcher Recommendations in Philly/S. Jersey

Butcher's Block in Westmont on Haddon Ave. is close. He doesn't usually have a lot of variety beyond standard chicken/pork/beef. When I've asked for other things he usually says he can order it.
Also, second the Reading Terminal Market. At least three IIRC

Hollandaise

restaurants in the Poconos

Had dinner with a group of 10 Saturday night around 6. The place was basically empty. Overall was very disappointed. The high was the chips and salsa. One salsa was chopped jalapeno and tomatilla ( I believe ) which was very good. Entree was a taco and enchilada. The taco was shredded beef which was in one dried clump. Enchilada was dry chicken and a topped with a flavorless tomato sauce. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Weekend in Baltimore

I'm pretty open to all types of food, definitely more fun and innovative stuff. We've no schedule at all. We're staying at the Residence Inn on Light St.

I imagine the places at the Inner Harbor are chains? I'm into more neighborhood-like places.

Charleston does look very good. But a bit more than I'd probably like to spend. I'll keep it in mind though.

Also looking for brunch and lunch suggestions. Thanks again everyone

Cherry Hill Recs

I wouldn't feel uncomfortable in jeans there.

The chef came from Cassanova Grill in Marlton, some of the menu came from there as well.

Any reviews of Blackbird in Collingswood, NJ?

I've been twice. Very good. The rabbit ragout is a must if it is stil on the fall menu.

Best place to catch the phillies tonight

Meeting some friends in either Center city or university city for dinner tonight. I'm looking for somewhere with pretty good food but also with a few TVs tuned to the game. I'm leaning towards Good Dog, but would like some other suggestions. Thanks.
