    Henrietta Hots is top notch. Their wings are really good. I get them with Boss sauce. Homemade Onion rings are good too. Schalers not so much. I am assuming you haven't been in a while. Try Dogtown next time your up here. The best of the best....

    i'm far enough out in the burbs that, with 2 young kids, rarely get into the city. at least a lot of good stuff in the burbs too. including the best wings i've ever had.

    plus i have 3 wegmans within 15 minutes of my house.

    I think you're the one who told me about Wing Street.... Philly suburbs are no slouch either. Awesome Greek and Mediterranean options

    wing street wasn't me.

    the place by me that has the best wings does them wood fired. when you get them to go they don't toss them in sauce, they put it in a container so they don't get soggy.

    close enough to norristown i'd recommend making the trip. it's called "collegeville italian bakery". it's pretty much a straight shot west on ridge pike. norristown is also 2 towns over from me. gimme a heads up next time you're in town.

    you gotta make sure you specify the wood fired wings when you order. they make regular wings (haven't honestly tried them). they are on the pricey side as far as wings go, $13 / dozen but they are jumbo and they are damn delicious.

    Haven't tried their food. Their beer is good, but overpriced for what it is IMO (a number of my friends are of the same opinion as well, and they are bigger beer snobs than me).

    Conshohocken cafe is a good breakfast spot in that area.

    Flannigan's boat house in conshy has a much better than average draft list, and some of the best wings in the area.

    Bridgeport ribhouse is good for BBQ. Also good wings.

    Scrapple

    25 gal plus cast iron pot over a wood fire is best

    Water
    Hog trimmings, bones, ofal, full day head
    Boil until meat falls off bones
    Pick meat and rough grind, return to pot with stock
    Bring back to boil and add corn meal, buckwheat flour, coriander, salt and pepper.
    Stir constantly until thick and it makes a plopping sound.
    Ladle out into loaf pans and cool.

    To eat, slice thin or thick and brown in a cast iron skillet,

    it's one of those "once or twice a decade" foods for me. it's from this region so some smaller diners have it on the menu.
