Cafe America – Doylestown, PA

Category : Bucks County, Doylestown, Latin Cuisine, Pennsylvania, Restaurant Reviews

The one good thing about getting my taxes done every year,  is that I get to enjoy a casual stroll around my hometown of Doylestown, Pennsylvania. I love the quaint boutiques, the plethora of restaurants that I can choose from, and the friendliness the locals share. I can honestly say, growing up I had it pretty good.

It was lunchtime so we decided to stop at one of my faves, Café America. Café America is one of, extraordinary restaurateur, Lilly Salvatore’s phenomenal locations. Opened in 2000, Café America offers a fresh menu of Latin American cuisine.

When you walk in, you are invited into a colorful cafe that has a few tables downstairs and seating upstairs in what looks like an open loft. The menus are artfully displayed on chalk boards all over the walls. When you approach the small bar you order your food and beverages including cocktails and have a seat at any open table where they bring your food and drinks to you.

I can’t even begin to tell you how quick the food came out, and all of ingredients were so incredibly fresh!  First things first though… I ordered a perfectly made Patron Margarita to get my palate ready for some Latin deliciousness… And, in a perfect marriage to my tasty cocktail, we got a dish of homemade tortilla chips with accompanying salsa and guacamole.

Zingers Wings & Things – Kunkletown, PA

Category : Kunkletown, Pennsylvania, The Poconos

                                    

THESE are how wings should be made! A great sauce, and a great texture to the chicken wing itself! Not undercooked and squishy or overcooked and dry! These bad boys were just spot on! It’s amazing how simple it can be but almost every restaurant screws them up. (My dad owned a wing restaurant years ago so I know a thing or two about wings!)

Deep fried in fresh oil, Zinger’s wings were out of this world! Their little wings & things cart tours the festival circuit and this time I actually caught up to them at The 2010 Good Guys Car Show at Pocono Raceway this past weekend. What a great time in general but what a great group of people! They have all the usual flavors you’d expect to find and it’s all HOMEMADE! 

If you’re out and about at fairs, festivals, or car shows then be on the lookout for the Zingers’ cart.  They do not have a website or a “Facebook Fanpage” yet but I was told they’d have a Fanpage on Facebook ASAP so look there soon! If you’d like more info or want to book them you can give Zingers Wings & Things a ring!

Edge Restaurant – Bethlehem, PA

Category : Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, The Lehigh Valley

74 W Broad St. Bethlehem, PA 18018 – (610) 814-0100 – edgerestaurant.net

           Our ”Gourmet Guy” promotion at WLEV and Cat Country 96 in The Lehigh Valley with EDGE sold out of their gift cards in 90 minutes! This means you should read this and GO there!

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining with our good friends at EDGE in Bethlehem. Edge is located on Broad Street at the intersection of Broad and Main – arguably one of the best “corners” in The Lehigh Valley. There is so much going on in downtown historic Bethlehem with the shops, eateries, etc. that EDGE just feels like it was ALWAYS supposed to be right here!  Living close by, we have frequented it often for happy hour appetizers. My wife, loves the Wednesday “Ladies Night” and of course, I’m NOT invited… But that’s okay! From the beautiful relaxed ambiance and decor, to the restaurant layout, staff, food, and all around experience and knowledge of cuisine – EDGE is by far one of the BEST places to dine in the area. (Legend has it that Larry Holmes’ son had his birthday party there that night so even the stars stop by!)

Our server Jamie has been with EDGE for a long time and Restaurant Manager Jessie Dech said that Jamie is his ‘Floor Captain’. That he is! Jamie has EVERYTHING in his head from the specials, to the regular menu items, to why certain wines go with certain dishes. I highly recommend asking for him!  Jesse is also a master of pairing wine with food at EDGE. The place was packed on this particular Thursday night which means they are doing something right!

We began our EDGE experience with a round of wine. We had the house Cabernet out of California, a Merlot from the same region, and a White Wine Spritzer. 

Appetizers could not come soon enough as we know how good they already are! My wife had one of her favorites-the Escargot special! It was amazing, served with a tomato cream sauce, onions, and in a puff pastry! Not the traditional way I’ve seen it but that is why EDGE is so great…they do things differently. We also had Tuna Tartare with Crispy Wontons and an amazing Tarragon Gnocchi – Duck Confit along with Truffle Parmesan Sauce and Crispy Shallots.

 All of those mixed together in my mouth was heaven. Sherri had their famous Shrimp Cocktail Martini with Caper Horseradish Sauce and Mal had an Endive and Roasted Beet Salad and it honestly was something I never would order but I tried it and it was out of this world! Say hello to a guy that now likes BEETS at EDGE.

Dinner was on my mind since about 11am! I ordered the Black Angus New York Strip Steak Medium Rare, Frisee, Truffle Parmesan Frites, and Au Poivre Sauce! How do you think it was? Right! Perfect! Plus they do it right! Executive Chef, Tim Widrick is amazing. I was speaking with one of EDGE Restaurant’s managing partners, Fran, and he reinforced what I just said. I was talking about the steak and Fran told me they pan sear it first then when it’s cooked to order, they let it rest. NOT a lot of places do it right like that. EDGE does!

 My wife enjoyed the Long Island Duck Breast which was so tender and juicy.  It came with Sourdough Spaetzle, Broccolini, and Dried Cherry Gastrique. Yum!

 Mal went outside the box and got the New Zealand Rack of Lamb with Green Olive Yogurt & Drizzle and I was lucky enough to get a taste!  Those of you who never have had lamb…EDGE is the place to try it! 

 Sherri enjoyed the Grilled Hawaiian Butterfish on a Salad of Baby Spinach along with Hydro Bibb Lettuce, Romaine Hearts, Parsley, Wonton Crutons, and a Lemon Thyme Vinaigrette. I have rarely seen Butter Fish on a menu before and being a seafood lover, I had a bite. It was SO RICH and delicious. Not too overpowering from a fish standpoint so if you like fish but don’t like that ‘fishy’ taste, THIS is a great dish!

We finished up with a sampling of Warm Banana Pound Cake with Maraschino Cherry Ice Cream, a Salted Carmel Chocolate Tart, and Mal and Sherri split a Toasted Coconut Molasses Tiramisu.  Mal said it’s not traditional Tiramisu so he wanted to try it…Mal fell in love! I had some too and the coconut was a nice crunchy addition to pair with the creamy Tiramisu! 

All in all, EDGE is a place we’ve been to before and a place we’ll be back to…a lot! A big thanks to Fran, Chef Tim, Jessie, Jamie, Glenn, and Kim @ EDGE. Gourmet Guy went home stuffed and happy and we had a wonderful night with wonderful friends! We’ll see you soon…my wife especially for “Ladies Night”!

McCoole’s Beerfest 2010 – Quakertown, PA

Category : Alcoholic, Beer, Bucks County, Drink Reviews, Drinks, Pennsylvania, Quakertown

 

     I actually never was in McCoole’s Red Lion Inn and didn’t even make it in the day of the fest. I did, however, enjoy their parking lot festivities! It was a special day as it was my wife’s best friend’s birthday!  A TON of us had a great time and it was nice to meet new people and see people there that I never expected to see. 

                                                                           

     Over 30 vendors selling merchandise or slingin’ beers! I enjoyed the Octoberfest Brews and the IPA’s a little more than everything else but I did try a TON of beer…and yes…I’m still feeling it.   It was a blast! I didn’t want to name specific brews because they all were good but I seriously endorse IPA’s, and Octoberfest beers! Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale was pretty slamming also! I took a TON of photos and you can see them ALL HERE!

Green Eggs Cafe -Philadelphia, PA

Category : Pennsylvania, Philly, South Philly

1306 Dickinson Street Philadelphia, PA. 19147 – 215.226.EGGS – greeneggscafe.net

 

     

 

     Yummy!!! When trying to decide where to go to brunch on Sunday morning, I used UrbanSpoon for my iTouch and it came up with Green Eggs Cafe  in South Philly.  So, I went online, looked at the menu/reviews, and hopped in the car.  When we got to the location, I was pleasantly surprised by the exterior and interior decor.  The building is newly renovated, spacious and has a clean but cozy feel.  The food is truly amazing.  I have now been there, twice in 2 weeks, 1 savory meal and 1 on the sweeter side. 

     My first visit I had the Smoked Atlantic Salmon omelet and was not disappointed.  The omelet came with capers with red onions and had a  whipped cream cheese topping.  The flavors were spot on and was the perfect portion size. On my second visit, I had one of the specials, the Chocolate and Raspberry stuffed french toast. Just by reading this, you may think that it would be overwhelmingly sweet, but on the contrary…  There was whipped Nutella and the raspberries were a little tart which made the dish very enjoyable.  The french toast was topped with a vanilla whipped cream that added the perfect amount of sweetness.

     My good friends from the Lehigh Valley were visiting and tried the special, the marinated skirt steak, scrambled eggs, and their signature new potato side. The steak was prepared perfectly to his desire and the potatoes stood up to their signature status, the seasonings were just great. His wife had the granola and fresh fruit. She was amazed at the freshness of the fruit and the incredible fruit granola combined with yogurt hit the spot.

     I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to have amazing food in a good atmosphere with a knowledgeable wait staff.  Oh, not to mention they serve fresh La Colombe coffee everyday… How’s that for a starter!

Remember to ask for Jen!
Oh, by the way, no entrees on the brunch menu are over $9!!! Nice.

Rice Balls

     For $3.50 these cheese and rice filled fried creations are one of a kind in the Lehigh Valley! Served with hot marinara sauce! MMMMmmmmmm! If you can find Hometown Heroes on Geopp Street hidden in Bethlehem, you must go there! Owner’s John and Pauley (Brooklyn transplants Father and Son), serve up some incredible sandwiches with old brooklyn italian flare. It’s a small place, maybe 10 seats at the bar and a few tables, but this is one of those places that you can’t help but feel incredibly comfortable and leave very well fed. There isn’t one person that we’ve taken there in the last few years its been open that didn’t love it! the wife LOVES the pierogies. Gets them every time.
