Korean stews, smoked fish, and the pickliest sandwich ever.

Here’s where the Foobooz team is going to be eating this weekend. Maybe you’ll find something that sounds interesting to you. Maybe you’ll find a new favorite restaurant. And maybe we’ll see you there.

Neighborhood: Elkins Park • Cuisine: Korean

Tewfik is heading for Dubu — the sleek, polished spot in Elkins Park doing all sorts of authentic Korean food, and one dish in particular that he’s after: Army Stew. It’s in the “Soups” section of the menu, and is basically a spicy stew of SPAM, pork and kimchi.

Restaurant Week
Neighborhood: Center City • Cuisine: Little bit of everything

Center City Restaurant Week is in full swing, and we have something of a survival guide for those of you looking to get in on some of the CCRW action. Plus, we’ve got a second guide for finding the perfect place to eat in Center City if your Restaurant Week reservations fall through. But for those of you looking to get out of the scrum entirely…

Dock Street South
Neighborhood: Point Breeze • Cuisine: Beer. coffee and dinner

The new brewpub from the Dock Street crew is a great place to escape the Restaurant Week madness. There’s great beer to start, then a Euro/Mediterranean menu that goes far beyond the usual burgers and wings served by most brewpub kitchens. Even better? The place does breakfast (with its own coffee house space) and lunch, making it essentially an all-day brewpub.

Lucky’s Last Chance
Neighborhood: Queen Village and Manayunk • Cuisine: Burgers

The Pickle Monster came in 1st place at Burger Brawl 2019. Dill pickles, fried pickles, a sweet pickle relish, pickle aioli and Herr’s Creamy Dill Pickle potato chips on top of two quarter pound patties and American cheese.

Neighborhood: Midtown Village • Cuisine: Brunch

Shrimp and Dutch grits with tomatoes and peppers. Rabbit, chive and white bean frittata. Smoked fish. Killer breakfast sandwiches and incredible benedict variations. All of these are part of Winkel’s $25 brunch prix fixe, all available a la carte, and all just waiting for you this weekend.
