Delivery took about an hour and a half. Items (sushi mind you) became soggy. More importantly, the delivery man was extremely rude! Called to yell at me to come down because he couldn't park (which is fine I usually come down for delivery anyways). Literally 1 min later I'm stepping off the elevator and he has called again to ask where I was. I hung up and said "I'm here" in the lobby. He proceeded to provide snarky commentary - way to earn your tip. Oh - the food? Meh - sashimi was decent .. the rolls were horrible - bland, chewy seaweed. Usually don't order mayo-drenched rolls, but tried one ... it was watery. Disgusting. In the end - probably my fault since I ordered sushi from a hibachi steakhouse slash sushi joint.
The GF and I had some friends over for dinner one night and we were all in the mood for Asian food. I thought about cooking some fried rice, but figured it would be easier just to order in Chinese for everyone. So, I hopped on Seamless and decided to go with my standard choice for Americanized Chinese cuisine in Philly - Square on Square. It may not be the best I've ever had (New York has that on lock down and I'm not even considering Schezuan cuisine as part of this genre), but it gets the job done and is better than most places in Philly. In fact, it was good enough for our friends to ask the name of the place so they could write it down. We had cold sesame noodles, which were interspersed with a simple Thai peanut sauce and fresh, julienned cucumbers. We had two orders of twice cooked chicken dumpings, which were steamed, then braised. The vegetable lo mein contained bits of bamboo shoots, snow peas, onions, and mini-corn. The sesame crispy chicken was crisp indeed, with a sweet glaze. The accompanying broccoli was steamed, but was not limp at all, maintaining their innate texture. Usually known as General Tso's chicken, the Powell version is dipped in egg batter and deep fried. It's then sauteed in a sweet glaze. The spiciness wasn't pronounced in this dish, but it wasn't anything a little Siracha hot sauce couldn't fix. The chicken and broccoli was pretty standard, with nicely roasted broccoli which was much more tender than the ones accompanying the General Powell's and sesame chicken. The beef with broccoli had similarly tender vegetables, but with succulent pieces of beef as well. Overall, Square on Square contributed to a fun night filled with laughter and friends. It's not the best Chinese cuisine out there, but for delivery, it's definitely up there for Philly. Great wine doesn't hurt its cause either!
As with most people, whenever the GF and I are not up to cooking or heading out to a restaurant, we opt for take out. When we can't pinpoint exactly what we want (which happens more often than not), we opt for Pandoras, which offers a melange of options ranging from sandwiches, wraps, pizzas, wings, calzones/strombolis. These are things that can be found in most generic American eateries to be sure. The one difference? Pandoras is consistent and does most of their items very well. That being said - we are talking about take out ... so take my bloviating with a grain of salt. Buffalo Chicken Stromboli ($8.25 small / $15.25 large) Chicken, Buffalo Sauce, Bleu Cheese, & Mozzarella This came in a small to medium sized pizza box. And while it was also portioned off into four sections, the entirety of the stromboli was just a little bit larger than one of the quarters of Pandoras' large stromboli. The innards ooze blue cheese, mozzarella, and diced chicken. A delicious and winning combination in my book. The crust of the stromboli is typically crisp on the outside, with a nice chewy and pliant dough within. Wing Dings ($6.25) I had no idea what wing dings were the first time I ordered them. All I know is, since then, I have ordered them every single time. Pandoras does these really well - juicy meat within, with an incredibly crisply fried exterior. They simply fall off the bone. I wish they would offer more blue cheese to dip these in, but honestly? They really need no accompaniments. I can eat all of these in one sitting - no problem. Overall, Pandoras hits the spot when I'm craving take out. You don't feel better about yourself after the meal, but it definitely brings a smile to my face while I'm eating it. Hey - you can always hit the gym afterwards ... if you can wake yourself up from the resulting food coma.
After an insane day at work filled with meetings and presentations, I was once again in the mood for take-out. And with that ... Mexican food came to mind. The GF and I have ordered from Los Taquitos de Puebla once before. I love a good taqueria and they did a fairly decent job of providing those tastes via delivery the last time around. Perhaps it was the delivery aspect that muted my enthusiasm (nothing beats a fresh taco from a taqueria stand or even a taco truck), but I was willing to give Los Taquitos de Puebla another chance to blow my mind. Gringa ($10) Layers of protein, vegetables, tortilla and cheese. Served with shepherd style beef and Chihuahua cheese. The last time around, I ordered the Alambre especiale which was a mountainous mound of pork, beef, cheese, mushrooms, and more. They provided flour tortillas on the side, allowing me to scoop just enough of what I wanted into each handheld bite. Perhaps it's because the gringa is technically not offered as an 'Alambre,' but this iteration came as more of a quesadilla. I ordered this as the GF wasn't a fan of the melange of various meats in the especiale. The gringa contained only al pastor (shpherd style) beef - you could clearly taste the sweetness in the accompanying pineapple, which is typical of most al pastor tacos. The chihuaha cheese blended nicely with the rest of the dish. However, I was disappointed that this was a quesadilla and not more of the 'Alambre' I had previously (my own fault of course). Regardless, the 'layers of protein' described were not seen here. Tacos de Pollo ($10) 3 chicken tacos per order, fresh off the grill. Served with sour cream, lettuce, and fresh cheese. These were ordered by the GF, and I somehow managed to snatch one of them away. It was fresh, delicious, and light compared to the gringa. Overall, my perception of Los Taquitos de Puebla has not changed much - at least on the delivery end. Perhaps you simply need to have these tacos right off the grill to
