Twisted Kitchen's a gastro-roadhouse fittingly perched next to a gun shop
where Brad Wesley's goons are getting strapped so as to cause trouble on 309, whose sunstreaked no-frills insides're rimmed by a stool-lined, kitchen-facing counter, at which to take down a deep menu of regional fare developed by a chef who's got 30 years serving food across the city, from corporate center cafes to Presidential galas.
Paying equal homage to greasy spoons and culinary whimsy are heart-endangering sammies like South Philly-style roast beef & pork jawns; the Jambalaya hoagie with sausage, pork, shrimp, chicken, and spicy rice; and the ridiculously awesome Philly Heart Attack: an American cheese'd burger topped with pork roll, a cheesesteak's worth of rib eye, sauteed mushrooms & onions, a housemade remoulade, and more American cheese, because Michael Bay will just NOT stop making movies. Rounding out the menu're traditional plates like bacon-wrapped chicken with country potatoes and a long-simmered pot roast, plus dogs (cheddar-topped chili beasts, and a chorizo/deviled ketchup combo), and street tacos with skirt steak plus lobster/ crab/ shrimp hit with Old Bay mayo, but not Michael Bay mayo, which provides a different kind of Hell, man. Apostrophe s.
Twisted'll spike your cholesterol earlier in the day, too, thanks to breakfast/brunch offerings like bacon-stuffed crepe-style pancakes, creme brulee French toast with vanilla custard and butterscotch caramel, and a tomato/scallion spicy crab cake -- because in a Road House, you've gotta be spice, until it's time to not be spice.
