This weekend, I took Susie for a road trip up to see Revolutionary War history sites around the Philadelphia area. En route to and in between visits to Brandywine, Valley Forge, Washington's Crossing, and Princeton, I hit up a couple of my all time favorite restaurants.
En route up, a stop in Baltimore for Pioneer Pit Beef
Then for dinner, we hit up Mi Pais, a Colombian place with empanandas and arepas in Malvern, PA. Sorry, I failed on the photo front.
On Saturday, we had lunch at a spot called Luberto's Brick Oven Pizza and Trattoria in Dublin PA. I had a steak sandwich and we split an appitizer of fried zucchini. I am usually very leery of Italian restaurants because of the omnipresence of cheese, but this spot gets high commendations from me. If the dipping sauce is indicative of the sauce on their pizzas, I will get a cheeseless pizza next time I come through.
For dinner, we bebopped up to Hellertown (just outside Bethlehem PA) for Limon Authentic Kepab House. For all my travels, this is literally the best restaurant I have ever eaten at in the United States. I never thought I would get back, and I am so happy Susie was willing to go an hour out of the way to eat there. We split the mixed kabobs, but as good as the chicken and lamb were, the adana was hands down the most unworldly good thing I have eaten in some time.
Unfortunately we ended with a whimper. I wanted to make sure Susie got to see Amish country on the drive home. Unfortunately, everything is closed in Amish country on Sundays. We found some awful tourist trap spot where the restaurant was in a train car in Strasburg PA. They didn't have any buttermilk to make pancakes, and I ended up with a free hotel breakfast buffet quality home fries and sausage breakfast. The toast was good. Pioneer also isn't open on Sundays, so I stopped at a Roy Rogers (big oof) in Waldorf MD on the way home.
