FACTS: Located in Old City, Philadelphia
WHAT I ORDERED:
Nachos: Fresh Corn Tortilla Chips, Jack Cheese, Green Tomato Salsa, Sour Cream, BBQ Pulled Pork
Fried Green Tomato BLT: Benton’s Bacon, Mayo, Tabasco Peppers Remoulade
Cheddar Fries and Debris Gravy
Not only does Khyber Pass Pub possess an extremely impressive menu, but the food itself is delicious.
Tonight, we started out with a large plate of nachos, topped with BBQ pulled pork. Despite my initial skepticism about adding pork to this already savory dish, I ended up thoroughly enjoying each and every bite. In addition, the cheese-to-pork ratio was evenly distributed and the portion size was beyond generous.
Fried green tomatoes! Yes, you read that correctly, and the fried green tomato BLT was out of this world. Allowing for one side dish, we selected the cheddar fries and gravy. Drenched in equal parts gravy and melted cheese, this version is the best I’ve had anywhere.
In summary, our meal was outstanding, and it exceeded my expectations. Furthermore, there’s a little something here for everyone since the menu ranges from fried okra (which we’d tried the week before) to various vegan dishes. Did I say vegan dishes? Yes, believe it! Not surprisingly, I highly recommend this place and look forward to visiting again in the near future.
