Review: Friday night at Tabblon

Special B and I were at Tabblon to chill out after a long week.  The restaurant is a very low key BYOB establishment, but the food is pretty good!!

I had the salmon and highly recommend it! Also they had he better chicken with rice and veggie combo I have eaten at a latin restaurant yet…liked the empanadas as well!

Restaurant Week @ La Viola

Restaurant week is over in Philly, and Master Tester and I were able t try out La Viola, a fine Italian restaurant in center city…hmmhmhmmhmm.  I had been to the place during my college years with my friend Chi and it was just as good and just as crowded.

What went well: the food is delicious! Real italian food from Italy! Fresh, seasoned, hmmmmmmmmm The ambiance is very much as a family dinner.  You need to BYOB but the staff is very warm, we had a bowl! And I loved the smoked trout salad (INSALATA DI PESCE AFFUMICATO), soooo good! Also highly recommend the salmon (SALMONE DI CAPPERI). Checkout their menu HERE.

What was so-so: The beef special…too regular.

What went wrong: the wait!!! We had reservation but had to wait 45 minutes before being transferred to West LaViola.  Everybody has such a great time nobody wants to leave! So be prepared to wait, but the food is well worth it.
