South Philadelphia Taproom (SPT)

My friend Peggy and I usually get together once a month to catch up.She & I have been friends from our days with Masterman Home & School. Now our youngest kids are together at Penn State. We usually try one of the many Pubs that have sprung up in revitalized neighborhoods in South Philly.Last week we returned to one of our favorites, SPT, located in the newest "up and comming" neighborhood where there has been an influx of young singles/families and a healthy dose of college students (particularly those attending the University of the Arts).The proximity to Downtown has made South Philadelpia a very popular place to live.

The SPT has been around as a corner bar for 50 + years.IMG_1332.JPG

Two years ago new owners bought the property next door and expanded the dining room so that food can be served.

They have a great selection of beer along with wonderful food. I chose the Mushroom Gorditos with Queso Fresco

Peggy chose real comfort food, Grilled Cheese with Tomatoe Soup

Oh, and a big thanks to Peggy and her husband Tom for taking Jordan back to PSU from Sring Break while I was having fun in San Diego!

Yummy, that food looks good.
Isn't it amazing what great local pubs we can find when we just search them out?

I love places like this. The food looks awesome!
