Treesy’s Soul Food – Turnersville, NJ

Treesy’s Soul Food – Turnersville, NJ


I found Treesy’s Soul Food (TSF) sitting in an old strip mall, sort of inside another new strip mall area. They are a little off the beaten track, even for Jersey strip mall dining standards. Once inside though, TSF is warm and welcoming, but the interior décor is a little bland. The good thing about TSF is that the décor was the only thing that was bland. My order of fried chicken breast, green beans, and cabbage were all very good and delicious. The prices are about average for this style of food around the area. I enjoyed my meal and the service was top notch and friendly making you feel at home. If you are around the area, and in the mood for soul food, you should certainly give TSF a try.

Grill Master Deli – (Rittenhouse Square area) Philadelphia, PA

Grill Master Deli – (Rittenhouse Square area) Philadelphia, PA

Sitting directly across from some the most expensive real estate in Philadelphia is Grill Master Deli (GMD). As you would expect, most of the dining options around the area are fancy and a little high priced, GMD thrives with cheap recognizable basic meal options to eat. GMD is not going to wow you, or break new ground with anything, but if you just want a quick affordable something to eat, GMD is the place for you. On a nice day, they could be the perfect fit to get a bite to take-out and sit in Rittenhouse Square and enjoy the sights on a budget. On my visit, I would have their hot roast beef with provolone on a kaisar roll and fries. It was as you may have guessed by now after reading this far “basic”, but that was what I was looking for and GMD succeeded.



El Sanjuanino – Buenos Aires, Argentina

El Sanjuanino – Buenos Aires, Argentina

I enjoyed probably one of the best beef empanadas I have ever tasted here. To go along with that always delicious and famous Argentinian beef, I really feel in love with this dining oasis of deliciousness in Buenos Aires. Who cares if it is a 14 hour plane ride, it just might be worth it. Lets go!
