Marino’s Pizza: Not ‘Quite As Peach-y As Expected’; ‘Latent Heat’ Makes Han Dynasty a ‘Hit’

• Adam Erace finds the pizza made with “ripe, juicy Jersey peaches” at Marino’s of Mullica Hill “wasn’t quite as peach-y as expected,” but the “tender and juicy” porchetta stromboli, with its “garlickly broccoli rabe and sharp Claudio’s provolone” inside and a “crisp, crackling shell” on the outside, was more rewarding. [Courier-Post]

• “No spice to speak of” in Han Dynasty’s cold sesame noodles “allowed the soft texture of the ramen-like noodles to play a more prominent role” in the dish, but the “latent heat” in the Dan Dan noodles made them “a hit.” [Two Eat Philly]

• Though nothing “was ground-breaking,” the “slightly crisp texture” of the meat, “moisture and additional crunch” from vegetables and the “tasty” hummus in the chicken shawarma at Alzaytouna Restaurant adds up to a “pretty satisfying overall package.” [Philly Phoodie]

• “Fresh and crisp” vegetables make Wing Wah Restaurant’s beef and snow peas dish “really great.” The “mound of battered crustaceans” and a “spicier rendition” of chili sauce in the chili shrimp were “perfectly cooked.” [Tredyffrin-Easttown Patch]
