FAVORITE DISHES 2011
Now that the first third of 2011 has ended. Please list your three favorite Philadelphia area restaurant dishes eaten thus far this year. Mine are the following;
Grilled 31 oz. prime rib at the Prime Rib
Pork Belly with lentils and Fab Fab french fries at The Dandelion
Nick's roast beef sandwich double drowned with rabe.
Notably off list was the lamb shoulder at Zahav due to unbelievable salting the last two times there
and the wet brisket at Percy St due to inconsistency in the restaurant.
I think I should wait until after the Blackfish dinner tomorrow night to decide. Just in case!
Ok, today, right now this is what comes to mind.
Zahav -Lemonnana + Hummus-Foul
Oyster House -Dock Street Hop Garden - Southern Fried Oysters with Chicken Salad
Amada - Stoudt's Gold Lager Ensalada Verde/Caldo Gallego
Hope it is ok that I also had a drink.
As far as I can tell, the only thing that's the same is that it's raw meat. It's beef now instead of lamb, served with shisito peppers and a few other things. It was good, but the version before that (lamb, with black harissa and I don't know what else, with a thin slice of what I think was cucumber wrapping it up) was one of the best things I've ever eaten. That dish has changed quite a few times since Zahav has been open and that version was my favorite.
House-made sausage at Southwark
Han Dynasty cucumber salad
South Philly Tap Room fried chicken w/ jalapeno/honey corn bread
Sweet potato fries from the green truck at Temple (can't remember the name but I wish I had reasons to be in that neighborhood again)
Monsu Eggs Basildict for brunch
