Exploring Chef Tony‚Äôs Kitchen In Northeast Philadelphia

Chef Tony's Kitchen's stuffed bacon cheddar burger

‘A No-Frills Looking Restaurant That Serves Exceptional Tasting Food’

Chef Tony’s Kitchen is a diamond in the rough in the Northeast Philadelphia area which is located at 4320 Megargee Street.

Opened in November 2016, owner Anthony Hughes journey into the restaurant business has been interesting.

Chef Tony had retired to the Dominican Republic from 2010 to 2012. ¬†Here he opened Fat Tony’s for 1 1/2 years. After finding some success, he decided to move back to the Northeast Philly area.

In 2012, Hughes trained under Chef Francesca Morarta while in culinary school from 2012 to 2013. He then went on to work for a few catering companies before opening his current restaurant in November 2016.

I asked Chef Tony what he liked about cooking:

“I love when I get that immediate real reaction from a customer that they truly liked the food.”

Chef Tony’s Kitchen’s Atmosphere & Experience

When you enter Chef Tony’s Kitchen, you’ll see tables, chairs, a counter and the kitchen in the rear. The restaurant seats 35 to 40 people and they can accommodate up to 50 people when holding parties or celebrations.

What surpasses the ordinary look is the fresh smelling aromas coming from the kitchen and the very pleasant staff that will great you as you walk in.

The food created at the kitchen is homemade on the premise. There seems to be a lot of love that goes into the food.

Some of the specialties that seem to be a hit at Chef Tony’s Kitchen are: Stuffed burgers, stuffed wings, home made tacos, ribs, stuffed onion rings, crab cakes and their homemade ice cream which is made by Chef Tony’s wife, Angelique Hughes.

Alert! Their stuffed burgers are a half-pound as opposed to their regular burgers being a quarter-pound.

I had the pleasure of trying the stuffed bacon cheddar burger, the mac and cheese bites and their stuffed chicken wing which was stuffed with mac and cheese. One other item that I truly enjoyed was their homemade Apple Pie Moonshine ice cream. Wow, it was amazingly good.

No matter if you are living in City of Philadelphia or in Northeast Philly, if you happen to be out that way, I suggest stopping into Chef Tony’s Kitchen. Keep in mind that my comments regarding their food is of my opinion and is no endorsement for any such¬†special considerations.

Chef Tony’s Kitchen Extras

  • BYOB – Bring your own beer, wine and liquor.
  • Catering – Off premise or at the restaurant. They will do custom catering that can be off menu. Just ask for a consultation.
  • Can hold parties at the restaurant up to 50 people.

History Buffs Will Love The Museum Of The American Revolution In Historic Philadelphia!

Museum Of The American Revolution

‘Showcasing The Birth Of Our Country!’

The Museum of the American Revolution, steps from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, is the first National Museum to tell the story of the American Revolution. Two centuries have passed and there was still no national museum that tells the entire story of this remarkable period until now. So this will be a very exciting time in history!

The Museum of the American Revolution Experience & Atmosphere

The museum is located at 3rd¬†and Chestnut Streets in Philadelphia’s historic district!

It has been a bumpy road for all of this to take place. Originally, the museum was to be built in Valley Forge National Historical Park. After almost a decade of negotiations between the National Park Service, the Center reached an agreement with the Park Service to exchange its 78 acres in Valley Forge for its current location in Old City, the site of a former visitors’ center in Independence National Historical Park.

Prior to entering the museum, at the front edge of the plaza, you’ll see¬†five cannons from the Revolutionary period jut out, which was dedicated in honor of philanthropist Gerry Lenfest.

The Museum explores the dynamic story of the American Revolution and its ongoing legacy which uses 3,000 artifacts such as Revolutionary-era weapons, personal items, printed works and manuscripts, and works of art. Immersive galleries, theater experiences, and recreated historical moments bring to life the events, people, and ideals of our nation’s founding and engage people in the history and continuing relevance of the American Revolution.

During the dedication ceremony in June 2012, philanthropist H.F. (Gerry) Lenfest announced a $40 million challenge to everyone. Lenfest said,

The American Revolution secured our independence and led to the creation of this great Nation. I am offering this challenge grant because now is the time to establish The Museum of the American Revolution and ensure that the spirit of the American Revolution is carried forward for generations to come.

Can you feel the excitement and passion of the Museum of the American Revolution, because we can. Check out the video to embrace that excitement and passion. Click Here
