I usually order take out, but this restaurant does have a small dining room. It is located in the business district in Penn Hills on Frankstown Road. My favorites are the Sweet and Sour Chicken, Combination LoMein and General Tso's Chicken. The Crab Rangoon is also very good. The prices are what you would expect from a chinese restaurant with the lunch menu being less expensive than the dinner menu. Lunch specials run about $5-$6 and include soup or egg roll.
I had lunch at Christos and ordered a gyro. It was one of the largest and tastiest gyros I've experienced in quite a while. The bread was very flavorful and and the price was reasonable -- $3.95. Their lunch menu features other Greek dishes for $5.95 - $6.50 and their signature dessert is the Jackie O vanilla cake with honey syrup, custard and whipped cream -- what a delight. You can eat in or take out anything on the menu. They also serve dinner with an expanded menu. I'll be back!
I loved the ambiance and atmosphere of this spa. I had the pleasure of a hot stone massage which I truly enjoyed. This day spa also offers other services such as hair styling and pedicures. I will definitely return. The prices were about the same as other day spas for the massage. I had a 20% off coupon so the one hour massage was about $80 and I felt that I got my money's worth.
Primanti Brothers is known for their huge sanwiches made with the freshest bread ever. The sandwiches are very unique and stacked high with meat, cheese, fries and cole slaw. They are a meal in themselves. The price is also reasonable for the amount of food that is between the bread. Better be hungry if you order one of these sandwiches!
This is another one of Pittsburgh's hidden treasures. It's dfficult to choose a favorite, but the snowballs and elephant ears are just delicious. You can expect to wait your turn here and the prices are a little more than other bakeries, but the treats are well worth it. If you are in the neighborhood, give this bakery a try. I highly recommend it!
Stashed away on Stanwix Street between Market Street and PPG, this little shop sells lottery tickets and sweets. There's a nice selection of chocolate candy interspersed with some knick knacks. The service is speedy and friendly.
I discovered this little hardware store when I needed to buy a dog license. They are located irght on Main Street and though smaller than most hardware stores, they still carry most of the basic plumbing, electrical and other hardware supplies. Their prices are about the same as you would expect to find an any small hardware store.
Jenny Lee Bakery in downtown Pittsburgh has wonderful birthday cakes; the cake is very moist and the icing is really delicious. The selection of cookies, donuts and pastries is always very fresh. This is one of my favorite bakeries.
This wonderful toy store has been in Pittsburgh a long time and I've been shoping there for many years. There are 3 floors full of unique and unusual toys. The 3rd floor contains only dolls -- the largest collection of dolls I think I've ever seen! The staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend a visit to this toy store.
We usually have breakfast at Kings and the breakfast fare is always good. The service is always pleasant and generally quick.
They have cappucino, which I like, but will charge after the second cup. Presently, they have a rewards card to collect points for future discounts.
