Hinge Cafe in Port Richmond is visited by Trey Popp, along with his wife and “junior food critic.” Says Popp, “next time I’ll go the down-home route, especially if the housemade pierogies are available. And there will definitely be a next time: I’ve got to have another piece of Simone’s mom’s oatmeal cake. Topped with walnuts and coconut, it was the best dessert surprise I’ve had in ages.” Basically, it’s a comfortable, homey place, and the better food there is the one that falls in the same category.

The Week In Eats covers several holiday dining options, including a Thanksgiving menu at Tavern 17, and an environmentally friendly (“green,” if you will) festival on Germantown Ave. Oh, yeah — and a Thanksgiving after party at Devil’s Den, complete with Eagles game.

Wokano, located at Wing Phat Plaza, is Chinese food for the brave at heart. Totally, completely, and wholly authentically Chinese, the menu has things like duck tongue and pig intestine, and you will encounter bones and meat that looks like what it’s called.
