Hometown cooking at Perry's Place

SPRING CITY – The lowering temperature and falling leaves seem to beckon a warm, inviting restaurant that can provide a hearty homemade meal that fills stomachs and spirits alike. Lucky for the Mercury Muncher and the community, that place is Perry’s Place, conveniently located at 60 N. Main Street in Spring City.

It helps that Perry’s, which opened in March 2009, utilizes local produce and food purveyors, with all food cooked on the premises by Chef Joy, and changes the menu weekly. Customers appreciate the freshness and variety as comfort food such as chicken and dumplings and meatloaf are balanced by specialty items like homemade pierogies, which Perry’s takes orders for weekly.

Keeping up with the theme of variety, the Muncher was fortunate to enjoy a sampling of Perry’s finest foods, starting with the creamy chicken corn chowder. Stocked with generously-portioned, shredded chicken and juicy corn, the hearty soup was the perfect beginning to a delicious meal. What followed was a panorama of flavor: soft jumbo lump crab cake, tender grilled sea scallops, a soft and crispy pierogi, a rich and moist potato pancake, and most creatively a “cheak” (chicken steak), made of breaded grilled chicken breast with a barbeque flank steak sprinkled with cheddar cheese.

A B.Y.O.B. restaurant, Perry’s Place is now taking Thanksgiving reservations, providing private and on-premises holiday catering. They can be found on Facebook. Dinner is served Wednesday to Saturday, 5 to 8 p.m. Breakfast is available Saturday and Sunday 6:30 a.m. to noon. Call 610-792-3224 for more information.
