You’ve heard of Philly’s best pizza, best hoagie, and best cheesesteak…
But this summer, two girls are on a new mission…
And you can join them.
One of my best friends Tricia is famously the pickiest eater I know, with mozzarella sticks being a delicacy she actually enjoys. She had the idea we go on a mission this summer to find Philadelphia’s best mozz sticks this summer. Join us as we explore and discover the best Philly and the tri-state area has to offer, from diners, mom and pop shops and fast food chains. While I will be providing updates here on the blog, MUCH more in-depth reviews (read: cheese pulls) and commentary will be featured on my Instagram stories.
Judging criteria includes:
- Grease factor
- Cheese pull (arguably most important)
- The crunch
- Dipping sauce (we are taking this into consideration as it is part of the experience).
It is also important to note other factors:
- We WILL be taking into consideration if we dine at the dining establishment, OR if we do takeout.
- We also will be accepting other forms of fried mozzarella into consideration.
Some other places on our list include (we will try our best to visit them all):
- Nick’s Old City
- Joe’s Pizza
- Quick Fixx
- City View
- Rosario’s Pizzeria
- Dino’s Diner
- The Anchorage Tavern
- Dolce Carini
Please DO send us more recommendations. And if you’ve been safe and are vaxxed and would like to join us for a guest spot, applications are available now (by way of Instagram DM)!
Meet our first contenders:
We were pleasantly surprised by one of Delco’s finest institutions! While the crunch is excellent, they could be more flavorful in the breading. Still a tasty app overall.
Our first chain experience of the competition. Now, there was some disagreement among our group of four. I found them to be less than edible, while others enjoyed. Do what you will with the rating below.
The highest ranking one of this grouping. A+ for the newspaper presentation, which evokes that of a British pub. The group consensus was “good breading.”
A recap of the current rankings:
