Hi There! Hope you are having a start of a wonderful weekend.Today, I will talk about my experience eating from a menu from Taylor Gourmet, a Philadelphian gourmet fast food type eatery located in Washington D.C. I have not have the pleasure of personally eating eating at one of their locations but I have ordered online from them few times.
History: Before I describe my experience about their food, let me give some about their background. This unique place was started by two Philadelphian buddies in 2008 grew up on what they called “the flavors of Philadephia’s 9th street Italian market and hoagies served by countless mom and pops shops throughout the city”. They brought their unique Philly hoagies and salamies to the H Street NE corridors and few more locations for us to enjoy. Their famous clients include none other than our current First Family.
Food: I have had the pleasure of ordering online from them few times with my co-workers. My very first experience was their famous Ben Franklin Hoagies. It has a choice of breaded or grilled chicken with marinara sauce and sharp provolone cheese. What can I say about a their hoagies. It’s humongous, or at least for me. It’s a 16″ hoagie. I had to cut the hoagie into half and leave the other half for later. It’s great. My friend, who is a native Philadelphian said that Taylor had the closest authentic Philly Cheese steak that she has ever tasted outside of Philadelphia and that in itself is a huge accomplishment in my sense. Now for their Rissotto Balls. These are fried mozzarella balls served in marinara sauce. The first time I tasted this appetizers, I fell in love them and every time I order from this place I have to have my rissotto balls in my order. These mouth watering fried cheese has the perfect amount of cheese with a crunchy outside. Now, if you in a food for salad there are plenty of options for you here. I for one love their Love Park Salad with arugula, pastina, cherry tomatoes, sweet basil pesto, fresh mozzarella, and Taylor vinaigrette. I love adding grilled chicken to my salad for extra protein. This mouth watering salad has the perfect combination of favors to play a perfect harmony with my taste buds.
