Zoup! in Southpointe Town Center is a popular eatery for those living and working in Canonsburg. The small restaurant serves a large variety of soups (there are always 12 soups daily) and has a lengthy list of sandwiches, salads, and other fresh fare to choose from- all served in a timely manner for those in a rush to get back to the office.
There’s nothing better than a fish sandwich made with fresh cod, and tartar sauce. When I bread fish I like to use panko crumbs- they provide an extra crunchy texture that make the sandwich extra tasty!
I’ve always liked chicken salad- it’s easy to make, and makes for a delicious meal, especially during the summer.
Despite Starbuck’s attempts to completely monopolize the coffee industry, there are still small coffee shops that exist in metropolitan neighborhoods. One such café is Voluto’s in the East Liberty/Friendship area of Pittsburgh. I had never heard of Voluto’s until a colleague scheduled a meeting there.
I CAN’T believe I had never been to Harp and Fiddle before! I’d always wanted to go, but somehow, I never made it down to the Irish pub in the Strip District. Finally, Saturday night (afternoon), Ryan and I met up with John and Dana and friends and had a ROWDY time.
Beehive Coffeehouse is one of Pittsburgh’s hippest institutions, or so I’ve been told. Even in high school back in ol’ West-by-God-Virginnie, my friends would come all the way up to ‘the Beehive’ to see shows and hang out. It is a mecca for creative and alternative types. Mama Grizzlies, this place ain’t your scene.
I guess that we arrived shortly after the first wave of bacon-lovers, because when we got there, most of the food was already gone. It was hot outside, so Ryan and I waited inside at the bar for them to replenish the food. This frozen cosmo was the perfect antidote to the heat and hunger.
