Beilers Donuts

Happy FAT TUESDAY fellow foodies!!

It is the one day that we find it ok to eat anything and everything we want, so why not take advantage of this day and splurge? A typical tradition in central Pennsylvania is to eat fastnacht which is basically a giant fried donut with sugar. Sounds heavenly . . . I KNOW. 

This year I decided to break away from the tradition and go to one of best donut bakeries in Philadelphia, known as Beiler's Donuts. Beiler's Donuts is located inside the Reading Terminal Market. There is no way of missing it once you see the line backed up to other food counters inside the market. The donuts are homemade, hand rolled and extremely fresh. Not only that, they are cheap! Beiler's has over 40 different flavors of donuts to choose from. I tend to have a problem of narrowing down to just one or two, so I generally get half a dozen. (Don't worry, I share with my family and friends . . . sometimes 😋). 

Beiler's Donuts has been doing so well that this past weekend they opened another location in University City! It is exciting to know that I now have the option to go to different locations depending on where I am in the city. Today I checked out the Reading Terminal Market location and got my usual half dozen and tried the strawberry filled donut, chocolate with M&M's, two vanilla sprinkles, oreo creme, and the bacon creme filled. They were all to die for and totally worth the couple pounds I gained after eating them. If you are looking for a last minute Fat Tuesday fill, I would fill your tummy with a donut treat from Beilers!

SpOt Burger

Burgers burgers burgers rockin' everywhere . . .

No, but really. This burger is ROCKIN'.  Most people think a burger is a burger, but this will change your mind once you take a visit to SpOT Gourmet Burger. SpOt Burger is a small burger joint over in Brewerytown on Girard Avenue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This little family owned shop was once a food truck and after its years of success turned into its own little restaurant.

SpOt Burger has a wide variety of gourmet burgers or even a create your own option! Gourmet burgers generally include slabs of bacon, different cheeses, vegetables, or their "special sauce"--SpOt sauce. Personally my favorite, and go to almost every time is the SpOt burger which is loaded with bacon, cheddar cheese, pickles, coleslaw, and SpOt sauce. 

If you are looking for a quick place to grab a bite on your lunch break or a weekend eat, I highly recommend checking out this place! Homemade burgers, fries, fast and friendly service, with reasonable prices? I don't know how you could go wrong.

And welcome to my food blog ☺

A reason as to why my page might have come across your search is because you are a big food lover like myself. To introduce myself, I am a recent college graduate trying to live a "big girl life".  My passion is helping people with a degree in social work, but my biggest love in life is food and sharing it with others. 

Throughout my college career, I lived in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, PA. This is where my passion for food all began. How could I not become a foodie when building after building in downtown center city is an assortment of restaurants all wanting me to come in and eat delicious food? I could not resist it. . . and so this is where it all started. 

This space is used to share my experiences at restaurants in Philadelphia, PA, other cities around Pennsylvania, and wherever else my tummy takes me in the country.
