Rise And Shine, Risotto Balls! Taylor Gourmet Tries Breakfast
Last night, the hoagie honchos behind 14th Street's new fancy sandwich shop, Taylor Gourmet, unveiled their latest barrage of Philadelphia-themed foodstuffs. This time, the lineup targets an entirely new demographic: breakfast diners. The new weekend morning menu (also offered late Friday and Saturday nights) features seven styles of egg-topped hoagies, including one drizzled with a homemade beer cheese sauce. Another option: risotto balls. Crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside, the orbs come stuffed with sausage, bacon, pork roll and American cheese. Free samples passed out during the splashy launch party were served with a cup of that creamy house beer cheese sauce for dipping. In a word: Luscious. Taylor's new breakfast fare is available only at the 14th Street location, beginning Feb. 4.
