Wanderlust Wednesday: Sabrina’s Cafe

“Name your favorite brunch food and I guarantee they have it.”

Philadelphia has yet another showstopper brunch location, and that is Sabrina’s Cafe. Pancakes, waffles, stuffed French toast, burgers, brunch specials, coffee, the list goes on and on. Now.. if you didn’t gather from a previous post of mine, I am a ginormous fan of Green Eggs (see review here). Like, I’ll rave about it until the end of time.

But… Sabrina’s is a huge contender for my #1 spot. This is one of the most outstanding brunch spots in Philly.

 Now, on with it.

I’ve had everything from breakfast food (French toast) to lunch goodies (burgers/sandwiches). Though a small detail, coffee is obviously v important to me on a Sunday morning, and they always provide me with copious amounts of that as well.

I have to say, French toast is a favorite of mine anywhere. In particular, the Stuffed Challah French Toast at Sabrina’s is especially tasty. Layered between two thick slices of French toast is a combination of cream cheese, bananas, and honey. A brunch-goer’s DREAM.

I have also had their Black Angus burger with lettuce, tomato, provolone, and sautéed onions. Cooked to perfection, this burger was enough to feed two people! But obviously, as you can guess, I ate it all. I have to mention it was complimented by some of the best fries around.

My fiancé decided to try the brunch special of three burger sliders, topped with ham and other delightful condiments. I have no doubt he liked it because he also devoured the entire meal and cleaned his plate. We also continue to come back fairly consistently, so…

If you’re in the area, there are five Sabrina’s locations: Italian Market, Art Museum, University City, Wynnewood, and (the only Jersey location) Collingswood. It might also help to note that, at least at Wynnewood, you can call ahead and put your name in! I’m just saying, there’s a reason we are returning customers.

Bareburger

“Solid restaurant with a kickass menu.”

This is the place I pigged out the day before a 10-mile race down Broad St. in Center City, Philadelphia. I didn’t stop running the entire time, and that’s unusual for me, so I’m giving all of the credit to Bareburger, located at 1109 Walnut St.

This place proved a lot more impressive than my first glance into the window. First of all, it’s a sit-down. Like a real restaurant – designated to burgers. Really quickly, please let this sink in because if it doesn’t sounds like an absolute dream already, lemme go more into detail.

We each ordered the “standard burger,” which is topped with Colby cheese, caramelized onions, dill pickles, and special sauce between a brioche bun. I added avocado and my boyfriend fiancé added bacon!

The burgers are outstanding. Very fresh ingredients and juicy beef patties. They weren’t too big or slim either, the perfect size. And if that’s not enough to convince you to stop by, take a look at the fried goodies we added to the order.

Onion rings and fries, served with FOUR different sauces: smoke sauce, special sauce, habanero mayo, and curry ginger ketchup. Something for everyone’s taste buds.

Bottom line – the food is killer, the atmosphere inviting, and the wait staff are very friendly and willing to go into depth about their menu. I would highly recommend and will definitely be returning to this location. I’m so happy I got to try it out!

All my Philly friends: ever been here? Is there another place like it?

Wanderlust Wednesday: Interstate Drafthouse

“Now this is a hidden gem if I’ve seen one.”

I want to do this place justice so I’m putting forth my best efforts to describe Interstate Drafthouse in Fishtown, Philadelphia. Located at 1235 E Palmer St., this draft house has everything you could fathom as far as delicious pub food is concerned. The Google ratings are outstanding, the menu diverse, and let me tell you the pictures do not do it justice. I am writing this article to encourage all in the Philadelphia area to check this place out.

Let’s start with the fried pickles, because this was our first impression of the chef’s capabilities. These fried pickles weren’t your average thinly sliced pickles, they were fat. And v juicy. Accompanied with a side of ranch, I guarantee these will not disappoint. Between two people, we couldn’t finish them all because there would have been no room for dinner!

Now, if you’re also a fan of juicy cheeseburgers, this is your place. I don’t know if you could tell by now, but I have been on a huge cheeseburger kick. Anywhere I go, my eyes gravitate to the burgers/sandwiches on the menu. This burger did not disappoint. It was cooked perfectly and the fries made for a delicious sidekick. Did I mention it’s topped with truffle mayo? Sold.

My boyfriend had the chicken quesadilla and he was thoroughly impressed and satisfied. Normally, I eat more than him, but he was quick to down this quesadilla and most of his side of fries. It appeared to be pulled chicken “seasoned to perfection,” he claimed. This was definitely a win.

“Make sure you include my Villanova tee in the picture.”

So that’s my take on their food! The Interstate Drafthouse is definitely somewhere I will revisit, as I am eager to try the remainder of their menu. The staff is super friendly and willing to accommodate where they can. This bar/restaurant has a very casual vibe, and it wasn’t packed when we went on a Sunday evening. All in all, amazing experience and can’t wait to come back for more!
