Tria review!

What’s a Philadelphia food blog without a Tria review?

Here it is:

Tria has amazing food and great service. The location in Rittenhouse is a little small, a little too crowded, and a little too loud. If you can get over that, its a great place to catch up with a very small group of friends (maximum 5).

We had a cheese plate which was semi-smelly but quite delicious, a panini-style sandwich, some crostinis with goat cheese and pesto, and the best bread pudding we’ve tried in philly. The bread pudding was surprising because who goes to Tria for dessert? Anyways, it was excellent and we’d go again, but we’ve had our fill for now.

Saturday brunch at Square Peg

We would suggest ordering the grilled cheese Mac n cheese. It is a delicious start to your weekend. Square Peg is a great center city brunch places featuring southern food. Being southern girls (Virginian) this place is right up our alley!

To start off, we had the warm cinnamon donuts ( incredible) and a fruit salad (generic, but detoxifying :), we then split the chilaquiles (overall was ok- but with excellent sauce) and the grilled cheese Mac n cheese ( earth-shattering explosion of deliciousness).

The Philadelphia brunch scene is almost certainly ruled by a Day by Day, but we’d say Square Peg is definitely worth a visit or two.

A perfect evening in Philly: crab profiteroles at Sofitel Lounge and cake pops at Shakespeare theater

The food and service at Sofitel’s Liberty Lounge was incredible! Actually, the kale chips were a bit of a miss but otherwise, it was all lovely. They messed up the check initially but apologized and made amends immediately.

Next we went to Crumb’s. They have generic cupcakes with sickening frosting, but we picked up a couple of cake pops and went down the street to Philadelphia Shakespeare Theater where we caught Othello. The performance was excellent as always!

The Perfect Fridge?

Refrigerators just don’t seem to be built to TRULY work for the things that people want to store. How are you going to store a tall cake, or a thanksgiving turkey? How about your giant Le Creuset pot?  They are are pretty much the same, but  here’s the solution!

The solution is to have a section that you can open from the top, that is very deep! This way, you can fit your Thanksgiving turkey!!!! Why hasn’t GE made something like this yet?!?!? The bottom sections that need to be more insulated will not be transparent, but the tops parts can be! This actually isn’t the perfect fridge, but we’re definitely saying that there is definitely a way to improve the current refrigerator design!
