Bucks Food Calendar: Dec 18, 2017

Say what? Christmas is how many days away? Things are getting a little crazy! Expect the stores to be a bit crowded, the lines a little bit longer. Not to mention there’s still presents to wrap and, family coming into town. Take some time to destress this week and hit the town for some local fun. You could win pizza for a year, shop for artisan gifts, and check out some great restaurant specials. Happy holidays friends!

Tamales from Andalé Latino Grill

Andale Tamales

Tis the season for tamales – perfect for a Christmas Eve dinner (or snack)! Andalé Latino Grill is currently taking orders for tamales for pick-up by December 23 at the restaurant located at 144 E. Street Road in Feasterville, PA.

Customers may order as many tamales as they want, and fill them with their choice of pork, chicken or vegetarian. Tamales are $3.45 apiece, and the restaurant says there is a minimum of five per order. Orders can be placed by calling the restaurant at 215.494.9505.

There are also authentic Mexican, Tex-Mex, American-style Mexican or California Style restaurants all over Bucks. Here’s a pretty comprehensive list of the ones in Bucks, with a few notable exceptions outside of the county. Dig in! 

Barrel-Aged Holiday Creations from Dad’s Hat Rye

Dad's Hat Rye Whiskey

John Cooper and Herman Mihalich of Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey have been finding creative ways to reuse the barrels in which they age their whiskey. Now, for the second consecutive year, the Dad’s Hat Rye duo has taken advantage of aging their whiskey in their barrels which were used for storing various products, and they have released a limited edition holiday line of barrel finished whiskeys, which are all currently available at the Bristol, PA distillery.

The specials, which are only available at the distillery with limited availability, include a Honey Cask Finished Whiskey, a Maple Syrup Cask Finished Whiskey, and a new ‘Rock and Rye’ variety — an old-school whiskey liqueur recipe which dates back to the 1860’s. The ‘Rock and Rye’ is an aged rye whiskey mixed with sugar syrup and rock candy, whole cinnamon sticks, chopped oranges, lemons, apricots, horehound spice and cloves and infused for 10 days.

The Maple Syrup Aged Whiskey was made using barrels from Grinarmls Maple Syrup Company in Somerset, PA, as DHR has been sending their used American oak casks there for the past four years, so that Grinarmls can produce Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup, which is also sold at the distillery. The distillery is open for sales on weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m. until Christmas, and on Saturdays for tours from noon to 4 p.m. Dad’s Hat Rye Whiskey makes for a great Christmas or holiday gift!

Hmm. Whiskey sounds like a good holiday gift – especially for your spirits’ lovin’ friends and co-workers. Need a non-alcoholic gift? Check out our 2017 gift guide for more ideas this holiday season.

You Could Win Free Pizza for a Year

Liberty Hall margherita pizza

A major milestone is about to go down at Lambertville’s Liberty Hall Pizza. Owner Chris Bryan estimates the 100,000th Neapolitan pie will be fired up in his Valorani brick oven in mid December. That’s a lot of dough!

To commemorate the occasion, Bryan is offering guests who dine at the restaurant between December 19-22 a chance to win a delicious prize. The person who happens to order the 100,000th pizza will win their choice of a party for 30 in the Back Room (the restaurant’s private event space) with unlimited pizza, salad and dessert OR free pizza every week for a year (52 pies) — A pizza lover’s dream come true!

Liberty Hall Pizza is located inside the Canal Studios Complex at 243 North Union Street in Lambertville, NJ.
