angiepants [one pocket at a time]

Hi, I'm a 24 year old Long Island raised lady who became a grown adult (aka: 6 years for undergrad and grad schooling) in Philly, home of squished pretzels and 'brotherly' love. I've traveled over the northeast coast and even once to the Midwest for clinical rotations. I'm finishing my final one back in good ole' Philly this september. I'm on the track to finish my Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree and then take my licensure test this winter.

I'm known to geek over anything anatomy or adaptive sports. You’ll find me stopping to pick flowers for my hair, living waist deep in my studies or spending the weekend cooking up a storm.

I'm an Aries and ENFJ by nature.

My favorites are fruit, artsy things, wearing aprons and sprawling down on the ground instead of actual chairs. This is my place of inspirations, thoughts, and daily occurrences. Enjoy.

I WILL GO TO THIS BY MYSELF IF I HAVE TO!!

If this wasn’t all the way in NYC (a far travel from the midwest…), I’d SO BE THERE!

Plough in the Stars (On 2nd St between Chestnut and Market)
Omelet de’ jour of seared salmon, zucchini, and goat cheese? Do you know how many times I don’t eat out at restaurants? (100%).  The surprise ‘fried Irish potato’ and side salad had me as happy as a 5 year old with their first McDonalds Happy Meal and toy.
Also: The table bread served at these tables are not your simple Olive Garden rolls.  They are serious home-baked loafs with jam and kerrygold butter.  Of course I wrapped one up in a napkin to take home so they wouldn’t be wasted…

ALICE IN WONDERLAND RESTAURANT

 who is gonna go with me?

alright who wants to take me out to dinner? because I can’t afford this without someone’s help. =)

"The entire story unfolds within the walls of the 2,000 sq. ft. restaurant, from beginning to end. Upon entrance, guests are graced with oversized vintage books, mirrored walls, and polished checkered floors. Making your way to your table, you will find that larger than life grass hedges encase each table. Dramatic theatrical elements are in play throughout the entire space accompanied by intense lighting, various spots of color on the ceiling, and table napkins that sit upright, threatening to march away at any given moment."

Why is this wonderland all the way in Tokyo?

Farm Raised Arctic Char from White Dog Cafe (3040 Samson Street, Philadelphia)   

Green Meadow Farm Swiss Chard, Kennett Square Wild Mushrooms, Caramelized Butternut Squash, Creamy Whole Grain Mustard Spaetzle

AKA: Probably one of the greatest dishes I’ve ever eaten.  At a cost of $27 (something I would never buy myself), it was paid for by my Alternative Spring Break organization.  It was divine.
Did I mention everything this restaurant cooks is organic and LOCAL?  Now that’s amazing.

The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Company (18th and Sansom, Philadelphia)
"During Prohibition, the original Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. was known for being the center for the largest alcohol ring in the country."
A real life speakeasy in Philly?  I’m 99.9% sure this is where I will be spending my ‘Monday’ night 21st birthday.  Simple dinner, classy but huge range (6 pages!) of cocktails, and a real life twenties night.

Alma De Cuba
As a Philly passerby, this yellow ‘cute’ building stood out.  It’s a restaurant called Alma de Cuba and guess what, it’s a STARR Restaurant.
I know need to go for two great reasons.

Farmacia (Philly Restaurant Week Lunch)

Rules:

  • Eat ‘light’ before.  No food makes you starving and no appreciate.  Too much doesn’t leave room to appreciate.
  • Nobody can order the same thing
  • Everything must be shared (Ex: Push plates in a circle around the table)

2 Apps + 2 Entrees + 2 desserts + Good Company = $20 a head spent well.

Maureen’s Kitchen (Smithtwon, Long Island NY)

The Cow Place”

Dec 10 '10

A Full Plate.

Drinks in glass bottles, vibrant painted walls, mismatched wooden chairs, homemade rustic food, and chalkboard graffitti bathroom walls?

Could there be any more ecclectic-ness in one eating experience?
