This is a cute little diner right in downtown Philadelphia. My husband and I like to go to diners because they are generally locally owned and the food is not 'assembly line'. It's also a great opportunity to try and discover different things.
It was a beautiful evening, so we sat outside in the very nice and pretty spacious patio area. I really liked the ambience - BUT the shrimpburger was the star! :) So often, when one orders something like this (like a crab cake, for instance), what is delivered is a lot of breading with a little bit of shrimp/crab. Well, this is NOT one of those! This sandwich was comprised of a lot of diced up shrimp just held together enough to pan fry it. Mirin, a type of Japanese rice vinegar, gave it extra flavor, along with the miso dressing. My husband laughed because I mentioned how good it was so many times that he told me I should make it..
So, I did make it according to our server's instructions (which the chef was gracious to share), and I'm telling you, it's the only way to ever have a shrimp 'sandwich'. :) I also have to give kudos to the French fries. They were fresh cut and fried and simply delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Silk City Diner and I highly recommend going.
