Before we give our picks for the latest edition of Center City Restaurant Week, we debate the merits of the smallest Wawa ever, and we discuss how the impending Robot Apocalypse will begin in your kitchen.
Episode 162 – Stock Rittenhouse
In the first show of 2020, we discuss PhillyMag’s updated list of Philly’s best restaurants, run through the menu at Michael Schulson’s new Italian restaurant, and lament the fact that Wawa has our information spread out all over the dark Web.
Episode 161 – Travel Jawn: London/Paris
Another edition of The Travel Jawn takes us to Paris and London. But before that, we get sad at Brigantessa’s closing, get happy at news of a new Dizgenoff, and get confused as to how to pronounce Lidl.
Episode 160 – The Nordic
Episode 159 – Samuels and Son Seafood
It’s not every day that you get a chance to go behind the scenes of one of the biggest seafood wholesalers in America. So when the folks at Samuels and Son Seafood allowed us to take a peek behind the curtain, we jumped at the chance. So join us on a very unique look at some the food you order in and around Philadelphia BEFORE it comes to your plate… enjoy!!
Episode 158 – Condesa
The team that gave us the amazing Suraya and Pizzeria Beddia has come together once again to bring us the Mexican-inspired Condesa… can lightning strike three times? And on this episode of Jawn Appetit, we spend WAY too much time talking about the best – and worst – Halloween candy…
Episode 157 – Vernick Fish
Chef Greg Vernick has a stable of excellent restaurants, so it’s no surprise that his newest – Vernick Fish – has instantly made a name for itself in a crowded Philadelphia food scene. We also discuss several other high-profile openings around town, including the Brooklyn import Emmy Squared.
Episode 156 – Di Bruno Bros.
Di Bruno Bros. is a food lover’s dream… if you love to cook – or eat – make your way to the closest Di Bruno’s for some amazing culinary delights! We also spend time on this episode reviewing the 50 best restaurants in Philly, and debate whether or not you should look at the menu before heading out to eat.
Episode 155 – Center City Restaurant Week – Fall 2019
Where should you dine during Center City Restaurant Week? Which one of the city’s top 50 restaurants is now at Philadelphia International Airport? And, most importantly… how should you play Uno? We answer all of those questions and lots more in this edition of Jawn Appetit…
Episode 154 – Bite 4 The Fight / Chef Robert Irvine
Recently, we were honored to host a live show as part of the Bite 4 The Fight food festival, a fundraiser held in honor of Makenna Ann Massi to help raise funds for families facing pediatric cancer. The Fight On Makenna Foundation was created by the Massi family to honor Makenna’s memory, and at the first annual Bite 4 The Fight festival, we were able to taste some of the best food that the Philadelphia area has to offer. During our show, we were joined by Chef Robert Irvine, host of the hit Food Network show ‘Restaurant Impossible’ and author of the “Family Table” cookbook.
Episode 153 – Philadelphia Distilling
We’re not just about food here on Jawn Appetit… on this episode, we take a trip to Philadelphia Distilling to sample some Bluecoat American Gin as well as their other amazing spirits. We also visited Beyonce’s favorite bakery, and explain how tailgating got a lot easier for Eagles fans.
Episode 152 – La Calaca Feliz
Our trip around the Fairmount section of Philadelphia continues as we made a stop at La Calaca Feliz to see if their exceptional Yelp, Google and TripAdvisor reviews told the whole story. We also give kudos to Pizzeria Beddia for another amazing honor and wonder if all of the calories in a mukbang are really worth it…
