Looking for a good restaurant this weekend?
Ardmore-Merion-Wynnewood Patch brought you the details of Khajuraho India Thursday. While prices may have gone up a bit, the lunch buffet remains a great bargain. Make sure to arrive before the tail end of lunch to get the best selection at the optimal temperature. Click here for the review.
Here are some other area restaurants that Patch reviewed this week in other neighborhoods:
A true hybrid bar and restaurant, this local favorite offers plenty of pub fare in addition to soups, salads and desserts. The potato soup is delicious but definitely not diet fare. Click here for the review.
Kids love pizza but they’ll love it even more when they get to make it. In Chestnut Hill, this neighborhood chain shop Mom’s Bake at Home offers more than just pizza--check out the rolls, the roasted wings and chocolate chip cookies. Click here for the review.
A fantastic carnivorous sandwich of the same name is one of the great things about this local deli. Italian wedding soup, homemade desserts and plenty of beverages to choose from round out the list. Click here for the review.
The ridiculously rich and succulent roast pork sandwich, dripping with gravy, could be one of the world’s most perfect sandwiches. Grab your favorite Tastykake and bag of Herr’s chips to make it a full meal. Click here for the review.
A drummer-turned-cook is behind the menu at Lotus Farm to Table. While he’s worked at some of the top restaurants in Philadelphia, he now brings his expertise to Media. Find out what makes this guy tick and more by clicking here for the Meet the Chef.
A Cuban-Italian-African American who learned to cook from his mom, his aunts, grandma and grandpa is the man behind the menu and the stove at this Mt. Airy eatery. No animal fats are used here, and the chef claims that his best friend is extra virgin olive oil. Click here for the Meet the Chef.
Now a veteran in the business, Mel wasn’t always a restaurateur. Find out how he used his business savvy to nab one of the city’s finest chefs and how a Thai-Italian restaurant became Mel’s International. Click here for the Meet the Owner.
A friendly guy who can think on his feet, the chef/owner of this Manayunk burrito bar prides himself on the quality of ingredients and quality of product. He is fully committed to his family and his business and tries to instill the same work ethic and integrity he has in his own employees. Click here for the Meet the Chef.
This café offers simple food executed almost beautifully. The quiche and Waldorf chicken salad are wonderful. Click here for the review.
