Philly's PYT Does a Spaghetti BurgerBy Danya Henninger | August 20, 2013 By Danya Henninger | August 20, 2013
Ramen burger? Old news. Today, Philly's PYT introduced a new burger of the week, and instead of bread - or ramen noodles - it's meat sandwiched between two “buns” made of spaghetti. Northern Liberties is already home to the lasagna burger (watch a video on it here), so this was a natural next step for Tommy Up’s unorthodox bar.
No word yet on how the “transmogrification” happens - the restaurant actually refused to tell us anything when we called, not even the price of the new dish - but the pasta looks like it was fried into place. The patty itself is stuffed with mozzarella, and topped with red sauce (or is it gravy?) and flakes of Parmesan cheese. Though it looks tough to pick up, it sounds like a great flavor pairing. Would you eat one?
