Soju is a semi-casual Korean spot in Garfield where you'll find Korean barbecue dishes, classic bi bim bap, and a few other tasty surprises like poke bowls and chicken katsu. Throw in some great happy hour deals as well as creative and surprisingly delicious cocktails, and it's easy to see why this place nearly always has a line out the door.
The shop is located just next to the main restaurant in the Strip District and offers a walk-up window for slices and pies to go. In being big fans of the restaurant, you know I had to hit up this spot in the first week it was open.
Colangelo's is one of many spots in Pittsburgh's iconic Strip District that is tucked away and easy to miss. Located right next to popular coffee roaster La Prima, this spot serves up an array of baked goods, sandwiches, pizzas, soups, and more.
But if there is one thing this bakery is known for, it would be their pizza, and that is exactly what I was looking to try on my first visit.
LeoGreta, an Italian restaurant with a neighborhood vibe, opened in Carnegie in 2018 and brings a wonderful dining option to the borough. The space is on the smaller size and so is the menu, but the simple, homemade offerings are designed to please.
If you find yourself in South Side and are looking for dinner, or a late night snack, or a late late night snack, a visit to Cambod-Ican Kitchen may be for you. This particular spot serves staples from Cambodia from 6pm until 3 or 4 am!
So if you are in the mood for a different kind of Asian fare, you may want to try this one out!
During my first visit I opted for a Cambodian classic which hit the spot!
We heard many positive reviews of Bloomfield's YinzBurgh BBQ, and were pretty excited to check this spot out. But with a fairly high price point and only decent meats, I left this one a bit underwhelmed.
It doesn't get more traditional than Piazza Talarico in Lawrenceville. This family-owned Italian spot serves up Southern Italian food including homemade pizzas, pasta, and more in a cozy little space.
The best part? They also make their own wine and offer it on tap or by the bottle to go!
Fish Nor Fowl in Garfield is creative fine dining at its best. Our recent visit was the second for us, the first being shortly after they opened.
As the menu format is completely different now from when they opened, and we enjoyed the food even more, we felt that our review was due for an update.
It is a rare event on Discover the Burgh for us to feature a national chain, but every so often we will make an exception if it is interesting and somewhat unique among what is available in the area.
When I was invited into Fogo de Chao in downtown to try out their menu of all-you-can-eat meat as part of a local media event, it was one such exception.
It is time for more churasscaria in Pittsburgh!
If you're like us, when you think of Market Square in downtown Pittsburgh odds are good you think of mostly mediocre restaurants that are overpriced.
But there is one gem that is hiding on the second floor of a commercial space that you may otherwise overlook- Las Velas.
Not only does this one have a great view of Market Square, it also has some rather decent food as well!
