Philadelphia has become a great foodie destination. We have so many amazing restaurants. I went to a media event a couple of weeks ago and got to sample some stuff at The Twisted Tail. After leaving I told my husband we have to go back to try this place, and a week later we took the kids there for lunch.
The staff is super friendly and very knowledgeable about their menu. The brunch menu offered delicious varieties from omelettes to sandwiches. I think what I really loved were the cocktails. They are insanely good and refreshing. The cheese board variety is also outstanding. I’m obsessed with a good cheeseboard.
This is what we ordered (of course we had to start with 2 cocktails for myself and the hubby.) One of my favorite drinks at twisted tail would have to be the thyme after thyme. It’s super light and fresh. Another would have to be the geisha (an egg white frothy cocktail.) Next we moved on to an Artisanal Cheese Plate, which included 3 cheeses, jam, pecans, and crostinis. We also had some of their prosciutto, which was the perfect accompaniment. Now for the main course. My husband got the smoked turkey sandwich which had avocado, rosemary mayo and lettuce this sandwich was huge and delicious. My kids both decided to split the praline french toast, which was perfect for them to share. It was with Brioche bread, Pecans and Bourbon Pineapples. YUM! I wanted something light so I went ahead and had the Big eye tuna which was with Radish, Avocado, Jalapeno. It was the perfect size and very refreshing.
On to dessert. You can’t finish a delicious meal without having something sweet. The kids loved the homemade Popsicles and we enjoyed the bourbon peach Panna cotta.
If you live in Philly or are planning on visiting this is a must try place. They have lots of fun things going on right now in July including a Christmas in July bash on the 23rd. It’s free to attend with holiday beers on tap (including Troegs Mad Elf) live music, Santa Claus and….snow!
