So what are people in Pennsylvania eating for lunch today?

I'm still nursing my coffee but it's looking like banana chocolate creme pie from costco, and maybe an apple.

  1. debating ordering from chef king over at 10th & spring garden... i need some hangover food. eggroll and eggdrop soup sounds like it might fit the bill. plus that place is mad cheap (most lunch specials $5) and probably the most decent chinese take-out in/near northern liberties.

    1. re: rabidog

      I'm feeling a little under the weather today, and decided on some soup. I got Vegetable Lentil soup from Jonathon's Gourmet- the new place in the RTM. It's awesome! Thick with a slight Indian taste. Exactly what I was looking for... don't you love when that happens?

      1. re: jessicheese

        this sounds great!! i love lentil soup.

        i got my chinese food & polished most of it off... got the aforementioned eggroll and eggdrop soup, and the general tso's bean curd. feeling much better!

      2. re: rabidog

        Sounds awesome. Haven't tried it with a hangover but I love chinese food when I am a little sick. Hot tea, hot soup, lots of carbs!

        1. re: givemecarbs

          Indeed! Sound like a winner. Egg drop soup is the guns and a nice Shrimp Egg Roll, to boot.

      3. Having been cooped up for a week with a terrible case of bronchitis, my first stop after the office was Iron Hill for a cheeseburger and fries.

        1. re: crazyspice

          Alright crazy! Welcome back! I couldn't face that pie again so I stubbornly held out for a Really late lunch and ended up at thai orchid at almost four pm. I missed the 9.99 lunch special but got some thai iced tea, so soothing, and chicken pad thai. My friend got some wide rice noodle thing, not drunken noodle but similar, not as spicy. It was very good as well. Don't get me wrong I love Costco pie but omg they take forever to finish. Hope you feel better bucksguy.

          1. re: givemecarbs

            The lunch special is up to 9.99? Last time I was there for lunch it was 8.95.

            1. re: givemecarbs

              pad see eaw?

              thai orchid = on rte 30 in berwyn next to the pizza joint or a different thai orchid? i think i recall another location having been talked about, but not sure if they're related. the one i used to go to had an app, soup and entree for something like $8 or $9. i haven't been there in ages!

              1. re: rabidog

                rabidog this one is in the same shopping center as ihop on 202 Yeah it was pad see eaw I'm pretty sure. Very tasty. crazy it might have been 8.95, they had a sign on the way to the ladies room that they had taken down for the day. I might have got the price mixed up with the thai nadia lunch special, which is also three courses.

          2. Trying to kill a cold - yesterday did hot & sour soup from LaiLai in Blue Bell. Today had a chicken pot pie from Wegmans. Made a pot of turkey soup with the stock I froze from the Thanksgiving bird, tossed in what veggies were in the frig, added a bit of frozen gravy from the bird, and that's on tomorrow's lunch menu.

            1. Today i will be having lunch at the FARM SHOW!!! I plan on lots of dairy: Chocolate milkshake, fried mozzerella, honey ice cream and meat: pulled pork and maybe grilled trout. Also, will get marinated mushroom salad. Yum! It will be a long lunch!

                farm show? where's that? sounds excellent!

                1. re: rabidog

                  Harrisburg! I always think I should make the drive just so this urban girl sees the other side of her state!

                  1. re: Bigley9

                    there's another side of this state?

                    sorry, wrong, wrong, i know!!! :) it's a shame how little i get out past KoP!

                    1. re: rabidog

                      H'burg isn't even as far west as PSU main campus! It's out the TP past Reading & Lancaster, you can even take Amtrak there (our legislators do).

                      You -all of us CHers- should really hit the Farm Show one year. It's running through this weekend! You can see the Guv sometimes! His inaugural party was there, remember? Every 7th grader in the state goes to the Farm Show. When I went (back in the 80s), it was very Big Ag, so it would be interesting to see whether that has changed or if it's still oriented to large-scale conventional farming.

                      As to the original question: I noshed on popcorn, a banana, some apple cake, and had a very large, very late fried egg sandwich with melted prov on sprouted wheat sourdough for breakfast.

                      1. re: Mawrter

                        farm show sounds great!! a potato donut is one of the things listed. hmmm.

                        1. re: rabidog

                          Potato doughnut? Lifelong Pennsylvanian here, and I've never even HEARD Of that, much less eaten it. Clearly... I need to have one. At *least*. Wow!

                          1. re: Mawrter

                            Mawrter Yum yum sells lots of different kinds of potato donuts on faschnaut day. They are all really good.

                        2. re: Mawrter

                          Prolly not happening this year but sounds like fun, especially when growing things are sleeping under the ice and snow. An added plus is in my experience the people in Harrisburg are very very nice. I went there for a grueling card tournament once and I was astonished at the good sportsmanship displayed by the people there!

                2. Just had the Roasted Veggie Wrap from Good Eatz, a new place in the Reading area (where the old GNA pizza was). It is the 3rd thing I've had from there, and it was incredible - smoky grilled asparagus, roasted butternut squash, sundried tomatoes and brocolli raab, all tied together somehow with hummus! Everything there - mushroom stew, Ahi Tuna Wrap, stuffed pumpkin bread french toast - has been terrific! Even the gluten-free cookies and brownies are pretty good.

                    I'm loving this review. Must go to Reading!

                  2. kimchi chigae for me!! a piping hot (boiling) cauldron of kimchi, chili paste broth, rice cakes, scallion and tofu with a side of white rice! HOMP! i had been craving that for weeks....

                    1. So today I ended up with some tropicana orange juice and two bites of a fruit and grain bagel purchased from the Pepperidge Farm Thrift Store, but it gets worse. I downed those while driving. Blush. I'm getting a serious case of lunch envy here. By quarter of six I was starvin' and so was my friend so we stopped at Yangtze again and got the best seat in the house! Right by the aquarium. I kept getting distracted by the antics of the clown fish as it patroled the top of the tank. And there was a little purple tentacle thingie coming from one of the corals. It's lucky I can remember what I ate at all. I can barely keep two tetras alive in my fresh water tank, I am in awe of those who can manage a salt water tank. I had the garlic chicken and my friend had pork fried rice. I am really starting to get hooked on the fried rice at Yangtze, we switched plates a lot. Both were very good but I need to start ordering extra steamed rice with the meal as I always need a refill. I knew about the tank, I liked the tank, but I never got to sit right next to it before. The whole experience was great on a bleak wintry tues night. Next time I'm getting there before five thirty on tues thru thurs so I can get the twilight dinner special, with tank if possible. :)

                      1. tomorrow's lunch plans: in center city, so going to venture out again in search of the felafel man.

                        thursday's lunch (possibly - i hate to commit): i got a neat tip from my neighborhood message board about a felafel place in kensington just north of the crane arts building, at an islamic school. good felafels for $2 for lunch, and a mini market too. so i'm going to go on a hunt. a search of google reveals the only islamic building i know of up that way, a couple blocks over from crane arts, which i'll do a street view link to at the bottom of this post (it's a really beautiful building). if that's not it, i'll report back with my findings! has anyone ever heard of this place / been there? i'm a little disappointed in myself that felafel has existed this close to me all this time and i have not known about it.

                          1. re: rabidog

                            please let us know Rabidog! That is very nearby!

                            1. re: rabidog

                              wooo today was my center city lunch at the felafel cart. this time i had no trouble finding it, plenty of yummy smelling smoke! my sandwich was HUGE and i had to break down and eat it with a fork. felafel is incredibly different from what they serve at mama's, so it's hard to compare. it was VERRRY garlicky and smoky which i loved. also, were those pears? anyone know what the different fillings are? either pears or apples. very weird in a good way. what i would have loved even more: if it came with hummus and tahini.

                              my goodness today was cold. tomorrow hopefully will be warmer, and i'll muster up the courage to walk into this building all by myself!

                              1. re: rabidog

                                It really IS different than Mamma's falafel. I like the stuff from the cart better, but that might be the difference between Israeli falafel and Greek falafel. It's a matter of personal taste, or maybe what you grew up with.Was there a line today? Did he give you a hard time at all (he has a bit of a reputation for being a little like Seinfeld's Soup Nazi).

                                1. re: PattiCakes

                                  haha, no hard time at all! he was very pleasant and wished me a good day, inbetween mumblings i couldn't quite make out, but i think they were harmless because he was smiling. :)

                                  it was cold cold cold yesterday. when i arrived at the cart at around 12:15 there were two in line ahead of me, and when i left the cart there was a line of 5-6.

                                  but today's felafel takes the cake! i went to the islamic society school at germantown and jefferson. it is the gorgeous white, blue and yellow building with all the tilework - you can't miss it. you enter through a gate which leads to the schoolyard, and walk the perimeter of the building til you come to the last door (i stood there scoping it out for a few minutes til i saw kids bursting out of the door with lunch bags in hand). there are no signs, or hours posted. they were open around noon today, that's all i know! inside is a small store and a kitchen. there's no menu, no prices, no queue or any formal ordering system. after a minute someone behind the counter caught my eye and i asked for felafel, with hummus, something vegetarian, and he nodded. i wasn't sure if i'd get it in platter or pita form and i was fine with either. very efficient kitchen despite the crowds and i had my pita within minutes. i selected a green glass bottle from the cooler that all the other kids seemed to be getting - it was an apple-flavored non-alcoholic malt beverage. tastes like a sparkling apple cider. anyway, my felafel was moist and plentiful and spicy and delicious. not smoky and garlicky like the cart guy's felafel, different. it had tomatoes and cilantro and onions and carrots and pickles or possibly something pickled. there was hummus and a dressing, maybe tahini but i'm not sure. very simple and very delicious. sandwich and drink, $4.50. i was going to walk the sandwich home but i couldn't resist and opened the foil wrapper for a tiny bite, and ended up sitting down at a bench in the outdoor schoolyard and polishing off the entire thing, with snow falling on me. this place is such an adventure but i definitely recommend trying to figure it out if you're in the area!!

                                  1. re: rabidog

                                    Oh my. Oh my. Snowlafel? That sounds incredible. So this is a kitchen within a school? Were there other non students there?

                                    Yes, the cart felafel (OK, I'll spell it your way) guy does carry on a pretty contant stream of conversation -- I'm never sure if it's to the customers, himself, or maybe a little friend he has stashed under the counter. On occassion, the mumblings can get fairly animated. I usually nod & smile a lot. I am perfectly willing to pimp myself out for good felafel.

                                    1. re: PattiCakes

                                      yes, i smiled and nodded too. i've heard the rumors and i was scared of not getting my pita. :)

                                      you say falafel, i say felafel... i won't claim to know what's correct. any subject matter experts here? i always wondered about this. perhaps it's a regional thing, like how hummus can be spelled differently (i've seen humus, hommus) and don't even get me started on indian terms, i think there are a million different ways i've seen mutter paneer spelled!

                                      the islamic society (that's what i'm going to call it because that's the wording wrapped around the building, even though the store/kitchen has no sign of its own) - it is all part of one large building, however the school part is not connected to the store/kitchen part, the only way to access the store/kitchen is from the outside, through that courtyard (which is actually visible on that google maps link - it's just to the left of the building). it appeared that students were its primary clientele. i didn't see any other non-students there. though the people behind the counter didn't look that surprised by me so i'm guessing it's been done before. plus the fact that it's a mini-grocery store would indicate it's OK, too - doubt it's the kids that are buying groceries. (on one of the racks, i noticed something called... dust tea?) i was the only female without a head scarf which got a few double-takes from the kids. the people behind the counter were so overly friendly though i got the impression that outsiders are welcome.

                                      other dishes i saw were batter-dipped french fries, a chicken and rice dish, and french fries and chicken piled into a pita. next time i go, i might go a bit later in the day when they are less busy to inquire more about the menu (or lack thereof!).

                                      1. re: rabidog

                                        Great falafel story! I've done church kitchen-y things like that with Polish food, Greek food, Italian food, and African-American food... figures that's the insider-INSIDER place to get good falafel.

                                        Per spelling, I don't think it matters that much when you're taking it from another language with a different alphabet. I notice that my spellcheck dislikes both versions equally. I'm sure that someday in U.S. standard spelling, a standard will emerge and it will matter, but I don't think we're there yet.

                                      This sounds great - and close enough for a lunch run from work - even better!

                                  4. Lunch today with a friend at Thai Chef & Noodle Fusion on Chestnut St. I got her a little something for Christmas, and she reciprocated by taking me to lunch. Frankly, I think I got the better end of the deal. The combo lunch special: Tom Yum soup, Shrimp & Corn Cakes, Green Curry with Chicken, and Sticky Rice with mango for dessert. Heaven, I'm in heaven........

                                    Tomorrow is lunch at Continental Midtown, otherwise known as Continental Big Green Olive, courtesy of a visiting sales person's expense account. Many people going, so no cutesy swings. Next week? Lean Cuisine all the way. Can you spell "excess poundage"?

                                    Rabid, let us know how your encounter with Christos, The Falafel Man, at 20th & Market went.

                                      What a fun thread! I too am recovering from Bronchitis, and have spent the better part of last week drinking College In Thai Culinary Broth (from the carton) microwaved just past comfortably hot. So today was the first day I found myself really hungry again, and found myself headed straight to 'Under the C' at the Comcast Center Market for their chilean seabass sauted in mirin and garlic...sooooo yummy. I am tempted to stop back by on my way to the train to take some more home...

I ate a late lunch again, they kindly let us slide under the wire at East Cusine when we got there a little after three. We got pork lo mein and general tsao's chicken and hot soup. I was admiring the big sushi boat at the next booth when I realized the lovely girl sitting there was an acqaintance of mine. Her boyfriend said he really liked the sushi there. I needed something hot in my belly but maybe next time. Do you havea doxie, doxiemom? My little four legged princess gets some of the doggie bags I bring home but not all. She keeps trying that daschund hypnosis on me. :)

I had their turkey barley soup and 1/2 a turkey sandwich. very good. Other dishes at the table: pulled pork sandwich (huge and reportedly excellet), blackened chicken sandwich, crab cake sandwich (yum), cheesesteak, veggie delight (good, but heavy) and the open face roast beef with a HUGe amount of gravy. oh. and we had the cheese coins - which are SO good! i have no idea what's in those things, but i could eat a million of them.

                                                I never heard of it until I started working up the road. Have to say, my 1/2 turkey sandwich was HUGE and was real turkey, not lunchmeat. that hot roast beef sandwich looked SO good - and the guy that got it orders it every time we go. it's a good thing we don't go out to lunch there often! :-D

                                                  We may have to give this place another try. The second time we were there I had what I thought was the worst cheesesteak ever and my wife really didn't like her salad (not sure what it was, but they took it off the bill). The first time we tried their burger and we both thought it was blah! Maybe we should stay away from the grill.

                                                    1. re: givemecarbs

                                                      yes, right across from the clubhouse. I'm not sure about their draft beers, we have only gone for work lunches, and I'm not a beer drinker. I do know they offer woodchuck hard cider! :) Their website seems to be down this morning, but I think they list their beer selection on there... I know the full food menu is there.

Folks, we know threads like these have a tendency to veer away from sharing tips on where to find great local chow, so this is just a friendly reminder to keep the discussion focused on unique chow that's able to be purchased locally. If you want to share tips on great supermarket finds, please start a new thread on the General Chowhounding Topics board, and if you've got great chow you're making at home, please share the recipe on the Home Cooking board. If you get inspired to start a thread on one of those boards, it's fine to leave a "heads up" link here so local hounds can read your tips. Thanks for helping us keep this board focused on local chow!

Now, if only Chopstick Express were serving their crazy awesome Sichuanese dishes for lunch, and not just for dinner...... sigh.

                                                      Leftover smorgasbord: homemade chili with beef and beans, brussels sprouts and snow peas. I am the only one in the household who loves both chili and brussels sprouts so there are always lots of leftovers.

                                                  2. Atoning for the sins of Winter: 2 clementines and a big mug of tea. Oh the depravation!

                                                            I hope so. I would much rather have been at Assi than at the Great Dane Rescue festival my hubby had obligated us to. Nothing against Great Danes, but Assi-Great Dane? Assi-Great Dane? Assi wins every time.

                                                            I'm glad all of you had such a great time & tried so many new things. I think the great thing about those types of outings is that you have the courage to try things with a group that you might not have otherwise. And you really broaden your chowish horizens.

                                                              Patti you simply must make it next time! It felt like Babbette's Feast or something. When chowhounds get together it is like magic! The happy afterglow kept me warm even through monday. And for lunch today, baby spinach prepackaged salad from trader joe's and some of their new mint tea in the refrigerated section. But I added two strips of crumbled bacon to the salad!!!

                                                    2. undecided, but it is definitely coming from a lunch truck....maybe a trip to the crepe truck at 33rd and market?

                                                            I don't know why I don't make a ham more often. I think there's so much more you can do with the leftovers than with a turkey. We got a smoked, spiral-sliced ham from Sam's Club this year and it was excellent. We are down to the bone, and that is going in the freezer tonight to hibernate until I feel like making soup.

                                                              1. A fruit parfait from whole foods. It was five bucks but really good with plenty of delicious fruit, and some unsweetened green tea. The samples of sushi and three layer chocolate cake don't count, right?

                                                                              1. re: crazyspice

It's stealing money. Charge what you want for your food, but don't try to steal from me with overcharges for iced tea, water and, for that matter, wine. Having had family in the restaurant business for many years, I know that you can make money if you price food correctly. When I can buy a case of San Pellegrino for $12-$15, I expect to pay somewhere in the $4-$5 range, not $8.

                                                                        1. It looks like I'll finish off the remaining shrimp and lobster sauce I made on Friday night.

A little bit of leftover tofu with mustard greens and brown rice and salad (and by salad I mean lettuce -- but really good locally grown organic lettuce). Oh, and I have a yogurt for a snack. Life will resume this evening when I eat at Seafood Unlimited before going to hear Ruth Reichl at the Philadelphia Free Library.

                                                                                    1. Frittata with leftover steamed asparagus (Sugartown Strawberries) and shaved Locatelli. And afterwards, espresso (Hobo Ed's Train Hoppin' espresso roast).

                                                                                      http://www.hoboespresso.com <--- not the current website, apparently.

Made chicken salad with pineapple and walnuts for co-workers who won awards; couldn't make the dinner over the weekend. Thought homemade brownies with chocolate chips and chocolate buttercream frosting would be a nice treat with the chicken salad.
