Food Heaven: Sbraga, Philadelphia

Leave a comment

Hi there!  So this is NOT a sponsored post BUT I will disclose that I am very close with the GM’s wife 😉 so we were treated very well at Sbraga, as are ALL diners.  I HAD to share about this delicious meal. IT was a a must and you HAVE to try this amazing restaurant.  Chef Kevin Sbraga hits the mark with EVERY one of his delicacies and I am STOKED for the opening of his new restaurant (November-ish?) called the Fat Ham. I will report on this gem as soon as I partake in its wonder 😉  So let me start with my wonderful company:

Anyway, I will start with the drinks.  Sbraga has the MOST amazing bar tender who will be going to the new restaurant.  He is seriously the best and his drinks are OFF THE HOOK.

UNREAL popover; one of my favorite aspects of the restaurant, with drink numero uno: I don't know the name but it was stiff and good.
