Boiled Peanuts

Is there anywhere near Philly (I'm in Royersford, Mont county) to get boiled peanuts? I know they're mostly a Southern thing, but I'm so intrigued.

  1. Khyber Pass used to but I don't think they do anymore.
    If you want to make them you can sometimes find green peanuts (note: green, not just raw) at the big Asian grocery stores on Washington Ave.

      Khyber Pass had them on their menu just this last weekend.

      It's not the season but Morgan's Pier had them on their menu last summer.

    2. I think they make a hummus out of them at The Fat Ham.

      1. Local 44 has them on the menu now. $4.

        1. A lot of the "opportunities" for boiled peanuts down south are Hawk's. Always reheated and sold at events and various locations. You can order them online.
