As previously mentioned in this post, the past couple months has been full of great meals. So much food, so little time to blog.
Once a year, I meet up with two of my best friends from college for our Annual Soul Sister Reunion. In August we descended upon Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, not Mississippi) and literally ate our way from Atlantic City to the heart of Philly.
There are countless reasons I love those girls, but to top it off they are also wonderful dining companions. We laughed, talked, lingered and most importantly, chose different dishes to share among ourselves so we could taste as much as possible. It was one of the best reunions ever.
I highly recommend going to any of the restaurants below. If you actually happen to be in, or go to Philly, please , please be sure to try to eat at Radicchio Cafe and Honey’s Sit-N-Eat. You won’t be disappointed. Go, eat, and thank me later.
Radicchio Cafe is nestled on a corner near Old City, serving up luscious Italian food. It’s an intimate spot filled with cozy candle lit tables, and you can bring your own bottle of wine. We had a lovely salad with Gorgonzola, pears, and spiced walnuts, a seafood mixed grill platter, and decadent lobster ravioli. Between courses we dove into a bowl of crusty bread dipped in olive oil, and finished with cappuccinos, a cannoli, and hazelnut ice cream. Sadly, the light was dim and none of my photos turned out well.
Brunch maybe my favorite meal of the day, and Honey’s Sit-N-Eat serves up one of the best I’ve ever had. They use farm fresh eggs, organic ingredients whenever possible, homemade jam, real butter, and made from scratch baked goods. I could eat there daily, if I lived in Philly that might happen. I had a fluffy omelet full of turkey sausage, spinach, mozzarella, and tomatoes with a potato latke and biscuit on the side. My stomach was at capacity by this period in the weekend, or else I would have splurged for a slice of Jewish apple cake.
I may have come back to Jackson a couple pounds heavier, but it was worth every bite.
