Hubs and I were in Philly this weekend for our anniversary – we decided to turn it into a food fest weekend – scouring the fine cities culinary offerings. This is a list of my favorites.
1. Gadzooks Ice Cream, Bassetts Ice Cream, Reading Terminal Market
Chocolate, peanut butter brownies, caramel. Pure chocolate peanut butter chunkiness. Rich, decadent, delicious and chocolatey.
If this ice cream was available in NY, I would weigh 175lbs. They ship, if you are interested in a 6 pint minimum
2. Grilled Prime Natural Rib Eye, Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse
This was by far the best rib eye I think I have ever had. The first bite, literally melted in my mouth. A little pricey, 42 – but worth it. Its marbled, fatty meat heaven. Also, notable – the Mac & Cheese with truffle oil – yum.
3. Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookie, The Famous 4th Street Cookie Company
If you’re going to pick up cookies from this famous cookie store in the Reading Terminal Market, go later in the day – the store starts selling cookies for $1 each towards close. I tried the Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookie, and I will say this was truly inspiring. Great chocolate to macadamia nut ratios, not too soft, and not at all hard. Just a perfect large thick cookie – and whats more – they ship!
