Restaurant Roundup: Pizza testing, burger-wrapped hot dogs, ice cream for breakfast

Jan. 31, 2019

Daily Clean Food & Drink has been busy in the kitchen testing pizza recipes and is having ticketed events this weekend and likely next weekend to get feedback. Friday’s tasting is sold out, but tickets remain on Eventbrite for Saturday’s event. The cost is $5, but that amount will go toward the purchase of a pizza. Five varieties will be available: Thai, pesto, El Diario, supreme and hummus on either a sourdough or cauliflower crust. Managing partner Jeb Cooper said he expects to have pizza nights on Fridays and Saturdays, starting Feb. 15.

The pretzel crust is back at Little Caesars after the national restaurant chain ran a social media campaign claiming to have lost the recipe. The pizza comes one way, with pepperoni, two cheeses and a cheese sauce for $6.

Lots of restaurants and caterers are offering Super Bowl packages, but this might be the most creative food item. Emer-GenZ Eats & Treats in Harrisburg is taking orders through Friday night for Bacon and Burger Dawgs. They’re all-beef hot dogs wrapped in seasoned hamburger and bacon, and can go on the grill or in the oven. They’re $3 each or $21 for eight.

The Co-op Natural Foods is showcasing its new bakery items Friday. Buy a cup of coffee and get a free doughnut. A variety of flavors and gluten-free and vegan options will be available.

Are you a fan of craft coffee drinks? As part of downtown’s First Friday celebration, one of the baristas at Coffea Roasterie has created Business Schmizness. It combines espresso with lime juice and a house-made honey syrup. It’s shaken and served with a garnish of sage.

Celebrate Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day on Saturday at Stensland Family Farms. The retail shop on 41st Street is opening early and featuring a special breakfast menu from 9 a.m. to noon. Customers can order French toast or pancakes with ice cream, Flyboy Donut sundaes, Fruity Pebble shakes, coffee floats and orange juice sorbet. Show up in your pajamas and get a free coffee mug while supplies last.

Remedy Brewing Co. and Smallcakes Cupcakery & Creamery have teamed up for a Nailed It! Bird Box Challenge on Feb. 21 at the downtown brewery. For a $60 entry fee, teams of two will see who can decorate their cake to a specific design, but the catch is one teammate will be blindfolded. The event is limited to 15 teams, and the deadline to register is Feb. 6. The winners will get a prize package, and participants will get cupcakes and beer, and they’ll get to take their cake home.
