Lunch at the Pop Shop In Collingswood NJ today...
After seeing Bobby Flay's Grilled Cheese Throwdown show on the food channel I had to venture out to the Pop Shop today for lunch & I'm so glad i did, it was wonderful and took me back to my childhood days. They have a ery extensive menu & I ordered what Bobby created on that show it's called 5B's which is Brie, Goat Cheese, Applewood Smoked bacon, & Tomato on thick country white bread w/ Pop Shop Fries. I also had a great Strawberry Ice cream Soda old fashioned style both were excellent. Service was fast and very friendly also.
I Will be back for more....check out their menu on the website......enjoy.
We visited The Pop Shop for lunch today, everything was awesome. We had The Atlantic grilled cheese, the Elementary School Burger and the Crab Pretzel. . . Oh yes and the chocolate shake and lemonade/tea combo. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We are going to try to make it back before we leave Philly.
njfoodie.....Glad to hear you enjoyed it also....I want tio check out breakfast next time...stuffed French toast & "Betty's" pancake creations look soooo good also.It will take more then a few times to really experience many of the great items....their whole concept of community participation is really nice also. good luck to them.
Yesterday we went and checked out the Pop Shop as we were down that way seeing a friend in Maple Shade before he leaves for Qatar for a two year stint. Walked in and the place was absolutely mobbed around 1PM, so that was nice to see. We however got lucky and grabbed two stools at the "bar," and it worked out well.
Ordered some awesome "shake malts," mine vanilla, and Zelda's being chocolate, and they were quite tasty. Zelda opted for something simple, the "Collingswood," which is your basic grilled cheese, and it was oozing with cheese. I wanted to try the "Foodnetwork Famous" 5B's, and I keep saying I am going to try it, and it was tasty. I will however admit though that the goat cheese takes over the flavor on everything, but that is not such a bad thing. It even seemed to overpower the bacon. The only disappointment really was the tomato, which could have been riper, and could have been tastier. It also didn't help that it was a slice from near the top or bottom of the tomato. Maybe I am just spoiled fromt he great tomatos we get from Fernbrook CSA all summer long.
Regardless, a tasty lunch, and yet another fun visit. Glad to see this place still mobbed despite "the recession," but I don't think they have anything to worry about. If only Bordentown would support a place like this...and have a building that could occupy the needed space.
Happy New Year! -mJ
