After a weekend stroll through Center City, the GF and I found ourselves near Reading Terminal Market. Most of our typical haunts were closed, but Molly Malloy's was open so we decided to pop on by.
Butternut Squash Croquettes [$7.50]
House-made apple butter
We started off with the butternut squash croquettes. They were crispy and well-fried, but this was too much sweet on sweet action, especially with the house-made apple butter and despite the bitterness of the arugula.. Some salt was definitely needed here as well.
Chicken Tenders [$9.50]
Fried chicken tenders, house-cut fries, honey mustard
The GF went with the chicken tenders which were great. Crisply fried, the chicken was moist and tender. It also came with some of the best honey mustard I've tasted, replete with mustard seeds to boot. The fries were well-seasoned, but were somewhat limp.
Pot Roast Sandwich [$11.50] + Sweet Potato Chips Substitution [$1]
Horseradish cream, pickled onions
I went with the pot roast sandwich, which featured tender beef with surprisingly good depth. The pickled onions and horseradish cream really made each bite. This was all housed within a nicely toasted ciabatta bun. I was able to sub my fries for sweet potato crisps for a dollar. These chips were awesome - thin, sweet, and crisp.
Our server Alicia was great - she kept our drinks refilled and was clearly busy with plenty of customers. So if you're in RTM, stop by Molly Malloy's for a quick bite to eat. Frankly, it's a bit of a refuge amidst all the hub bub.
