Get Your Heatmiser Cupcakes At Tattooed Mom Tomorrow!

You may already be familiar with the Heatmiser, the cocktail that Tattooed Mom bartender Adrian […]

You Wish You Had This Dish: Xochitl’s Molcajete

It’s a hunka-hunka burnin’ love. Xochitl, consistently one of the more adventurous Mexican spots in town, just rolled out a little thing called a Molcajete, which is apparently made of volcanic lava and dreams. Sayeth the X: “Available in verde or roja sauce, the molcajete is a traditional mexican vessel carved out of volcanic rock […]

Terakawa Ramen: Totally Legit

We never did get around to telling you what a grotesque disappointment Ramen Boy was. In a city increasingly so desperate for good ramen that even the promise of a new decent spot lands us straight into all kinds of can’t-handle-it awkwardsauce, Ramen Boy, headed up by the folks who brought you Yakitori Boy — […]


Dept. Of Bragging Rights: Jason Cichonski’s One-Time-Only Dorito Polenta Cake

Though the picture doesn’t do it justice — damn you, heat-of-the-moment Instagram — our regularly scheduled meal at Ela on Friday night was interrupted by a special treat from chef Jason Cichonski: This Dorito Polenta Cake. It’s a long story how this came to be — short version: friendly dare — but the end result […]

Pizza Of The Moment: Trio’s Rustica

Gunners Run Opens Brunch And, Also, CLAMBAKE!

Gunners Run, the new spot from the four-headed hydra of concert promoter Bryan Dilworth, tattoo artist and Olde City Tattoo owner Jason Goldberg, music booking agent Tim Borror, and chef Shawn Sollberger, soft-opened just a week ago, on the afternoon they got their liquor license. The spot — which settled into the old Swift Half […]

In Praise (And In Search) Of Spicy Cucumber!

Much well-deserved hype and love has been thrown in the direction of Old City’s Han Dynasty — and for sure, proprietor Han Chiang himself is the kind of soothsayer this publicist-run Philly food scene could use a lot more of. And we could talk fawningly about the menu and the Cult of Han all day, […]

Food Porn: Dominic Episcopo’s Fine, Fine Meats

Dominic Episcopo has, for a few years now, been a photographer of some note in Philadelphia for both his editorial and commercial work. But this Friday, Episcopo steps out into a whole new realm with “Meat America,” his new show of photos at Bambi Gallery in Northern Liberties. For “Meat America” — which will also […]
