  1. Before our Philly MINI event at the Simeone, I always eat here (http://greeneggscafe.com/). Haven't made it past the breakfast items, but everything's delicious. The one of Dickenson's about 4 miles from the Simeone.
  2. I'll have to go to Han's in Exton and ask. I was a little sad they left Exton out. But hey, to most folks in Philly, Exton's the sticks.
  3. No love for the alpha site in Exton. Otherwise, very cool!
  4. I bought a MINI Cooper last year and became involved with a local MINI Cooper group. One of the things we do are driving/touring "rallies" around the area. A friend of mine and I are planning to put together an ice cream rally. We already know we're stopping at Jake's in Paoli for frozen custard and Zwahlen's in Audobon for ice cream. Need a third place. I prefer they make their own and they need to have decent parking. Milky Way Farms in Chester Springs is on the short list. Are there any other great ice cream places I'm missing?
  5. I had the pleasure of lunching at Jake's Frozen Custard in Paoli today. Missy, the owner, is from Wisconsin. She was working in pharmaceuticals, got tired of traveling, and decided to open an authentic Wisconsin frozen custard shop here in PA. She named it after her dad, Jake. I treated myself to a brat (hard to find around these parts). The brat was nicely cooked ... crispy with a nice snap in a real roll (not a hot dog bun). You could get it with onions and/or kraut. I opted for the onions. My friend and I also split an order of deep fried cheese curds. This was my first adventure into the wild world of cheese curds and these did not disappoint. Glad my friend and I shared, tho. Those things can weigh a girl down. I ended my meal with a nice dish of Snickerdoodle frozen custard. Missy was generous with the custard tastings. The Snickerdoodle was vanilla frozen custard, mixed with caramel and crushed up Snickers bars. Amazingly creamy, rich and delicious. Jake's is definitely worth checking out. With Missy's thick Wisconsin accent, you'll feel like you're vacationing in The Dells!
  6. Holly, have you tried Jake's in Paoli yet? I have yet to get there, but brats, cheese curds and custard, oh my! http://www.jakesfrozencustard.com
  7. Agreed! Amazing that they filmed for 11 hours for 11 (or less) minutes of air time. Would have liked to see more Han and less Rahm, but Han did a great job and really came across professional. Three cheers!
  8. We had take-out on Friday and it was the best it's been in a while. We saw Han in Philly mid-February. He said he may come out to Exton for the banquet they do every 3rd Wednesday. We'll see if that happens.
  9. Our man Han's gonna be on the Food Network (Meat & Potatoes) on March 21st. The episode's called Meat with Heat. Be there or be square!
  10. Any menu scanning you can do for these places would be greatly appreciated!
  11. I talked to Han's mom today and she said they filmed for 12 hours (11am-11pm) for an 8 minute segment. She thinks it'll air in March.
  12. According to Michael Klein, "Meat & Potatoes, the Food Network show hosted by Rahm Fama and devoted to meat sandwiches, is in town today through Friday to shoot at the Original Nick’s, Han Dynasty, and Village Whiskey. Be aware of dining room closures." Han's gonna get some national exposure!
  13. Hmmm, haven't been able to eat real food since July 16th due to surgeries and other fun stuff ... this may be a good option for my break fast.
  14. We had a FABULOUS wedding cake from Sweet Jazmine's bakery in Berwyn. They specialize in cheesecakes, but all their cakes are amazing. Kim and her staff are excellent to work with, too. http://www.sweetjazmines.com/wedcakes.html
