Farm to Plate: The Local

April 18, 2013 by


The Local.

This small, hometown restaurant, is based on it’s name.

Their menu is developed using the “bulls-eye” method. They plan the dishes they serve based on foods they can get within a 20-50 mile radius of their restaurant, located in Souderton, Pennsylvania in an old, historic yet abandoned train station.

Hold onto your water glass when the occasional train passes by.

They work with over 12 different farms in the Indian Valley to source their produce, dairy, and meats. You can taste the freshness. Everything on the menu is made hot to order. Vegans, vegetarians, and special requests are welcome.

They are open for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week, and for dinner Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The average cost of a breakfast or lunch plate is $6.95, and for dinner $25/plate.

Try the “Eggs Local,” two poached eggs over petite beef loin over an English muffin with chimmi-churri sauce, or the “Black, Blue, and Red Burger,” made with 100% grass fed beef and roasted peppers, blue cheese, and bacon.

The menu changes seasonally and with availability, but no matter when you decide to visit, your stomach is sure to be satisfied. And you’ll feel good about it.
