Antonella’s Italian Kitchen ~ Philadelphia, PA

Antonella's Italian Kitchen montage The Vitals:
the spot: Antonella’s Italian Kitchen 841 Conestoga road Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
the eats: Meatball Hoagie
the bucks: $9
the full nelson: when your meatball fix needs a double shot of gluttony 

Antonella’s Italian Kitchen is proof that the suburbs of Philadelphia can churn out a legit hoagie. Sure, some people might not think getting a Meatball sub is that hard. They probably have never had a real hoagie. Or a grinder. Yes, they all mean the same thing but when you are in a part of the country that will passionately correct you on the proper nomenclature of a giant meatball sandwich, you are certain you are going to eat a very, very good, giant meatball sandwich.

the spot: Giovanni’s Deli 4309 Landis Ave Sea Isle City, NJ 08243
the eats: Sopresatta Special, build your own combo(the Ali)
the bucks: $8-$12
the full nelson: my fav Italian American deli on the South Jersey Shore

I’ve been coming to Giovanni’s Deli for the last 5 summers, pretty much every time I’m down at the Jersey Shore. I have my in-laws, who hail from the Philly area, to thank for making me a Giovanni’s Deli regular. This is a deli that just feels like home. A home away from home built on cured meats and killer hoagie rolls. Now let’s talk about what you need to order . . .

Golden Brown & Delicious ~ Greenville S.C.

Best Thing I Ever Ate, East Coast, The South By September 4, 2019 Tags: , , , , No Comments

The Vitals:
the spot: Golden Brown & Delicious 1269 Pendleton St. Greenville SC 29611
the eats: Smoked Fish Bagel, Burger, Fried Chicken Sandwich, really whatever you want
the bucks: $10 or less, not including fries
the full nelson: the restaurant all the chefs in town were talking about

It’s been almost two years since I walked into the doors of Golden Brown & Delicious but the memory of the smoked sable on a toasted bagel dressed to the 9s certainly does linger. And being featured on an episode of Best Thing I Ever Ate only adds fuel to my fire of needing to post about this spot to the world.

If you caught that episode of Best Thing I Ever Ate in June, you saw that the deli spirit is alive and well in America. Still, I’m quite happy to save my bagel noshing for New York City. Russ and Daughter’s is a personal fav of mine and I know I am not alone in that sentiment. But exceptional bagels happen outside of Gotham, just ask anyone in Greenville SC.

Yes, I said Greenville SC . . .

the spot: Bob’s Clam Hut 315 US route 1 Kittery ME 03904
the eats: Jumbo Lobster Roll
the bucks: $24.95
the full nelson: a sandwich splurge worth every bite

In the world of Lobster Rolls, Bob’s Clam Hut isn’t the cheapest deal around; that title is held by Sullivan’s which we featured in Cheap Eats Boston. But it sure does make a case for one heck of a sandwich splurge. No, the $25 sandwich won’t have you rolling on the floor from the pangs of overeating, but it is unadulterated seafood indulgence at its finest. And it all starts with showcasing the whole point of a $20+ sandwich . . . the lobster.
