Booker’s Restaurant and Bar: Philadelphia, PA
Booker's is located in West Philadelphia on Baltimore Avenue, a bustling street that's home to a variety of delicious ethnic and American restaurants, cafe's and bars.
For my entree I ordered jerk oxtail (stewed in extra spicy jerk seasoned gravy, served with red cabbage and saffron rice. This dish is SPICY and I loved it!)
I also tried their cornbread with strawberry butter
My date and I shared seafood macaroni and cheese (lobster, crab, shrimp, and creamy
cheese blend topped with panko)
For our appetizers we had the following:
Thai wings - Sweet and spicy, topped with sesame seeds
Fried calamari - with peppadew peppers, spicy arrabiata sauce
This drink was so cute! It wasn't on the menu and I don't recall the name of it, but the waitress made the suggestion and I'm glad I listened to her! This was light, fruity and refreshing; it was a nice balance
to the spicy jerk oxtail.
Everything was delicious! This is a cute spot for happy hour or a relaxed dinner date.
