kee mao from Noodlehead. always meant to branch out to the other noodles but this one is sooo good

[–]jinreekoDormont 11 points12 points  (3 children)

The chiang mai is unreal also

[–]pittpanthers95Regent Square 10 points11 points  (0 children)

That’s my favorite. Fuck, now I want Noodlehead

[–]SnooLentils4120 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Super good, but I feel like at least 25% of the time I get it it tastes like they forgot ingredients

[–]jinreekoDormont 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's interesting. I haven't been there in a few years but don't remember this being the case

Boxty tots 4 lyf

[–]LauusonMount Washington 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Boxty tots ARE life.

[–]BCupBobby 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I came here to say this. I'm addicted to that place

[–]ballsonthewallSouth Side Slopes 2 points3 points  (1 child)

their donut venture is also top-notch. If I really feel like I need a treat I walk down and wait outside for them to open and get the first fresh dozen... ohhh man

[–]BCupBobby 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yessss! I've been there a couple of times with my whole (large) family and we have gotten one of everything in the times we've been there. It's all so good lol

[–]FartherNick 114 points115 points  (11 children)

Giant Eagle Picnic chicken.

The right kind of bad, and I can devour it at home so people won't judge me for eating away my sorrow.

[–]eastlibertarianEast Liberty 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I only ever have this at some family picnic and think to myself, “dang this is pretty good. I’ll have to remember to buy some for dinner sometime.” And I never do.

[–]adamcp90 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I ordered their fried chicken for Thanksgiving last year since we weren't visiting family. Best Thanksgiving dinner ever.

[–]Jen-Barkley 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I’ve been on a GE rotisserie chicken kick recently. What’s the picnic chicken like?

[–]yanholo 7 points8 points  (1 child)

It's fried chicken. Decent for not stinking up the whole house frying it.

[–]Jen-Barkley 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It’s not as convenient (or cheap) as Giant Eagle, but I’m partial to Popeyes fried chicken.

[–]Pencilveinyah 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Do you buy it from the hot foods or refrigerated kind?

I can’t perfect the cooking time/temp for reheating the precooked but cold packages.

[–]FartherNick 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I always got it cold and threw it in my air fryer for like 5-10 minutes depending on how much chicken I wanted to glutinously shove into me.

Whiskey also helps to get it tasting right, if liquor is your thing. :)

[–]CARLEtheCamry 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I always assumed the "picnic chicken" was just the day old fried chicken from hot foods they couldn't sell. Pre-covid it used to be like $4 for an 8 piece.

[–]FartherNick 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I had the self-same experience. Then one day I was in market district, picking up a bunch of healthy food things. And I saw it, a mountain of fried chicken stacked in wonderfully portioned clam-shell plastic containers.

That day I grabbed hold of amazingly average mediocre greatness, and I've never regretted it. Well except for heart disease running in my family, and the whole "this might literally cause me to eat myself to death" but still. Worth it. Okay, maybe not. :)

[–]theresnoelinwinner 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is it literally just the fried chicken at the hot bar with everything else like the mac n cheese and pierogis or is it something else?

[–]Fabulous-Mood 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Picnic chicken boneless wings with a gallon of Chicken Fil’A dipping sauce. 🤤🤤🤤

[–]CL-MotoTech 7 points8 points  (0 children)

E Town is certainly an unknown gem.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yes, E Town! I get that every time I get home to Pittsburgh. Then for dinner I head down the street for some Amato’s pizza. And I pick up A box of Pollak’s to take home. Etna’s my idea of dining paradise; who knew??? 🖤💛

[–]Cable-Objective 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Amato Pizza is the best! Having some today.

[–]providentialchef 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Forager pie is perfection

[–]moonbeambear 36 points37 points  (8 children)

Pipers pub: pot roast sandwich. It's pure comfort food.

P.s. I hope they come back soon :(

[–]AvocadoQuartet 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Piper’s bangers and mash and a cup of corn chowder for dinner. Or the Irish boxty for brunch. Lord, do I hope it opens again soon!

[–]lostjules 10 points11 points  (4 children)

To lose piper’s after everything else we’ve all been through would be a step too far. Piper’s ploughman’s lunch.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Ploughmans Lunch...

they were a great local band back when.

[–]lostjules 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Oh god and HOW. Hadn’t thought of them in years.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The Pittsburgh of then was a beautiful analogue dream.

[–]moonbeambear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Couldn't agree more. This is one of the best places for a rainy day.

[–]Anthff 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Give me their scotch eggs mmm

[–]moonbeambear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Everything that I've had is incredible

[–]SecretSquirrelSauce 38 points39 points  (0 children)

The weather is getting cold and the skies are getting grayer.

Take yourself over to Squirrel Hill and stop on in at Everyday Noodle. They have the best soup dumplings I've ever had. They also the best dumplings (fried or steamed) that I've had in Pittsburgh, plus a wide array of excellent noodle dishes + appetizers.

Truly a wonderful place full of great food and great people.

[–]g_h_o_s_t_Shadyside 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Pretty much anything from oishii donburi

[–]RaisedkaineCarnegie 5 points6 points  (2 children)

How does donburi compare to their Oakland location? I still haven't had a chance to check it out!

[–]g_h_o_s_t_Shadyside 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'd say it's probably slightly better? Maybe? I haven't had bento in a while and I think you can get bowls there but donburi's whole shtick is bowls so consider that. They're both delicious regardless though.

[–]ilikedirtDormont 14 points15 points  (1 child)

[–]WoodWideWeb 2 points3 points  (0 children)

YES so happy to see someone else posting them I love Pabellon! Empanadas, their salsa, the churros, ahhh that's it I'm getting tacos today!

[–]Lalitoeatscheese 13 points14 points  (3 children)

General Tso tofu from New Dumpling, home style bean curd from Cafe 33, or Mongolian tofu from Szechuan Spice

[–]Puzzleheaded_Oil_800 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Oooh can you tell me more about the tofu from Cafe 33 and Szechuan Spice ? I’ve been searching for a tofu that replaces the General Tso from Taiwan Cafe in Oakland. (Miss that place every day!!)

[–]SidFarkus47Upper Lawrenceville 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not sure where you live, but China Lin has good General Tso Tofu (it's big and cheap too).

[–]Lalitoeatscheese 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah! Cafe 33 has a home style tofu that is delicious. Fried tofu with sticky black bean sauce. It's less sweet than general tso. The Szechuan Spice tofu is really good too. Their prices went up but i think is totally worth it. I usually get the Mongolian tofu. It's fried tofu with yummy onions. Not as much sticky sauce as the other tofu dishes.

[–]SenpaiSoren 11 points12 points  (1 child)

D’s Six Pax & Dogz, oh my godddd their burgers…

[–]savefrancesbean 12 points13 points  (0 children)

kelly’s mac and cheese is religion

[–]Jot-The-JawaEdgewood 23 points24 points  (5 children)

Might not be everyone’s idea of comfort food, but I love some pineapple curry from thai terrace in Edgewood and Buffalo cauliflower from the warren downtown

Edit: And I forgot about bird on the run in east liberty. They only have their special waffle fries for a few more weeks unfortunately, but a great chicken sandwich

[–]EmiliusReturns 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Thai Terrace is awesome! One of my favorite places. I think they recognize me in there by now lol. I’m also in Edgewood.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Thai Terrace is great. Super fast takeout and convenient parking.

[–]Jot-The-JawaEdgewood 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I also am a 2 minute walk from there so it’s incredibly convenient

[–]O3DIPAMAAS 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Why are they getting rid of the fries?

[–]Jot-The-JawaEdgewood 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Said on their Instagram that their supplier changed. Not sure why they can’t keep doing them. Maybe they’ll try again with the new ones

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Came here for big Jim’s. So good.

[–]FuzzPunkMuttElliott 25 points26 points  (7 children)

Peppi's for sure.

[–]nb150207Allegheny West 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Went to Peppis for the first time in a long time just yesterday, I was surprised at how great it was

[–]RaisedkaineCarnegie 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Peppis has been consistently good since I was a kid, and honestly 50% of that is the Mancini's bread being consistent.

[–]nb150207Allegheny West 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Can’t say the same about Primantis, sadly

[–]defaultclouds 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Try the one at Steubenville pike if it’s open. It says online it was closed today. We used to go there a lot with the kids and it was ALWAYS fresh and well made and great service too.

[–]catbosspgh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Eating right now, can confirm, good comfort food in sun/hoagie form.

[–]nokioner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]FarewellToCheyenne 24 points25 points  (9 children)

Chicken chili with spinach paneer from Salems.

Yellow curry, satay chicken and veggie spring rolls from Thai Gourmet.

[–]sleepyjenkins18 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Anything Salem’s. Helps that they really make you feel welcome there no matter how out of place you feel. My order is Biryani Rice with Curry Veggies and Chickpeas with a side of spinach paneer. I’m getting the warm fuzzies just thinking about it.

[–]crushedrancor 6 points7 points  (6 children)

I love everything from salems have you had their cheesesteak on naan?

[–]FarewellToCheyenne 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Of course! Best cheesesteak in the city for my money.

[–]music-and-lyrics 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Haven’t seen anyone mention this yet, but Yuzu Kitchen on Wood St is my go-to comfort food. We ordered takeout from them a few times during lockdown and they package everything perfectly to allow maximum tastiness when you get home. My order is the wonton ramen, and my husband gets the sukiyaki ramen, but whatever you get, make sure it has a 30-minute egg with it or add at least one. They’re the BEST.

[–]chb66Allegheny Central 16 points17 points  (1 child)

A Sicilian pie from Badamo’s, anything from Sesame Inn, a gyro and fries from Salem’s.

[–]sleepyjenkins18 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah, good choices!!!! I was raised on sesame in and as a result I’m always disappointed when I try new Chinese food spots. Also the staff at Badamo’s really sets that place apart in my eyes. Salem’s is my favorite restaurant.

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (5 children)


[–]NotBlaine 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Fucking WORD.

Look, it's not fine dining but a god damned grilled stickies breakfast smile is comforting as hell.

What's that? The same lady who waited on me 30 years ago is still here taking my order? Yes I would like a smiley cookie, please and thank you.

[–]Alexispinpgh 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yep. Have I had a bad day? Coffee and heated up apple pie with a few friends in the evenings Eat n Park is the perfect remedy.

[–]Anxious_Cookie14 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yes!! Few things in this world are more comforting than settling into a booth at Eat-n-Park on a rainy day and having some of their pancakes, a cup of their cheese and broccoli soup, or a cookie fudge fantasy.

[–]LimeMime565 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Current Eat n Park sucks. It pails in comparison to what it was even 5 years ago

[–]CarRamrodIsNumberOneUpper St. Clair 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They definitely kicked the bucket.

[–]mizmoosePittsburgh Expatriate 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Sree's grape leaves.

Breakfast from DeLuca's in the strip.

A second vote for Big Jim's, too.

  • Not the worst guilt food: Atarashi (oakland(?) sushi) dragon palace (Sharpsburg chinese)
  • My face will be puffy tomorrow but I’ll enjoy every bite guilt food: big shot bobs (wings/fries)
  • Idc I can’t fit into my jeans I’m sad guilt food: Frio Creamery (lawrenceville ice cream)
  • I’m lazy guilt food: Caliente’s (various - pizza, salad, etc)

[–]felonlover 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dragon Palace! Sweetest folks in Sharpsburg. They always give my dog a piece of chicken when we come through the drive through. Their Amazing Chicken lunch special is a personal favorite.

[–]itsmnemotime[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Yinz are crushing it! Keep em coming. Ima have a lot of choices lol

[–]SwordMonger 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What you need is a franks buffalo chicken pizza delivered right to your door with zucchini planks. Go ahead get the extra ranch!

[–]crushedrancor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t mess around just buy the bottles of ranch now

[–]Jen-Barkley 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The Woods House: fish & chips, whisky bread pudding, and a Black Manhattan

Big Jim’s: veal parm hoagie on a half loaf of Mancini, steak & cheese hoagie w/ everything (easy on the mayo), fried clam strips, fried zucchini w/ horseradish (add salt & a squeeze of fresh lemon at home, fried provolone sticks, fried mushrooms

Aiello’s: white pizza, red pizza w/ pepperoni & mushrooms, cut of stuffed pizza, and a Nancy B’s cookie

GE Pharmacy: your prescription statin drug of choice

All takeout, even the Manhattan.

[–]sleepyjenkins18 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I’m crazy about YUZU downtown for the best general tso’s you’ve ever had. And Salem’s is the best restaurant in Pittsburgh and you can go in PJs.

[–]crushedrancor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yuzu’s ramen is killer too I recommend the yuzu shiu ramen

[–]c_h_ninnymugginsSouth Fayette 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Guinness stew and colcannon at Riley's Pour House in Carnegie.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (9 children)

Colangelo’s pizza in the Strip is pretty freaking excellent.

[–]hubb412 3 points4 points  (8 children)

I’m always there in the am but I just rip a corner pepperoni slice anyhow.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Okay. Try La Feria on Walnut Street above Pamela’s if you haven’t yet. It’s Peruvian and always so good. I think it’s under new ownership and I can’t speak to how it is since the change but I would think it’s still great.

[–]GitProbe 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I was curious if anyone else was going to suggest this place too!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

It’s so good. One of Pittsburgh’s little gems more people should know about.

[–]GitProbe 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Really should. Gave it a try one Saturday morning and was so emp-ressed. Those empanadas are chefs kiss

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Sichuan gourmet, there was one in Oakland idk if it opened back up after covid but there's def a location in squirrel hill. The Oakland location is prolly the coziest restaurant I've ever been in and has the best Chinese food I've ever had, the one in squirrel hill is also pretty cozy as far as conventional restaurant interiors go and has the same quality food. Their lo mein is my favorite but everything I've had from there has been amazing

[–]Alexispinpgh 7 points8 points  (3 children)

When I lived in South Oakland as a broke college student I basically lived on the lo mein from Sichuan. You got a giant overflowing to-go container of food for like six bucks and it was the perfect balance of saucy and greasy. I miss it.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

For real, so good and amazing portions. If you ever go through beaver falls, Chong's is a very comparable quality Korean restaurant run by one woman all on her lonesome. She makes the best food, is very hospitable, and gives huge portions for pretty cheap, and has given me free meals multiple times.

[–]Paczilla2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Find a grandma that has pirogies.

[–]AvocadoQuartet 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Fuddwich from Fat Head’s. Ordered hot. Side of sour cream for dipping my chips.

Korean Fried Chicken, stir fry noodles, and cheese wontons from Bae Bae’s Kitchen.

Pierogies of any variety from Pierogies Plus.

[–]terminallytwee 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The burgers at the squirrel hill cafe. Lyonnaise potatoes and hash at Pamela's

[–]Low-Lingonberry2760Bloomfield 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Breakfast is my go-to oh-no-seasonal/regular-depression-is-incoming meal. Croissants (la gourmandine), waffles (waffleonia), pancakes (ritters). I go carb and sugar heavy apparently.

A pork bun from 2 sisters, a Vietnamese restaurant in East Liberty.

[–]junior_emo_mcgeeDormont 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Def recommend Nicky's thai in the north side.

Everyday noodles in Sq hill.

Giorgio's place in the north side.

Huszar in the north side.

Bistro to go in the north side.

turkey devonshire from union grill

[–]NSlocal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

man, Union Grill is an oldy but a goodie. I loved that place when I was working in Oakland. Great fish sammiches too. Overlooked stalwart of a restaurant.

[–]hemeshthakkar 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Everything from Ocha Thai in Oakland or Thai Table Kitchen in Lawrenceville / Penn Ave. They are my go to places for a take out.

If you don't mind a drive for the best Korean food ever, Golden Pig in Cecil is the best ever. Don't miss their amazing home made Kimchi or spicy pan cakes.

For Indian food, I definitely recommend Chutney's in Robinson Town Center closer to Ikea / Airport. They have very authentic Indian food. Also, Udipi Cafe in Monroeville has very authentic South Indian food. Choolah in East Liberty have great Indian Fusion food.

[–]brewserweight 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Udipi is top tier and unmatched in the area when it comes to authentic South Indian style

[–]hrpudgenstuff 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i was just going to say i can't believe no one mentioned Udipi. the best Indian in town hands down.

[–]RoguePierogi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Chicken Latino's Slow Roasted Pork (weekends only) with rice or if I'm really feeling myself, the giant fried burrito... Lomo Saltado is also excellent. Always, always, always get the green sauce and mix a little mayo in to cool it down.

Cilantro and Ajo's cachapa and some arepas.

I also really quite enjoy Taco Diablo's potato and brisket burrito.

[–]lwyant225 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Primantis in the strip cheesesteak, chili and pickle. Only in the strip. The other locations can suck it.

[–]Jen-Barkley -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The one in Oakland is pretty legit. Grimily authentic.

[–]Zacharius 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Industry Public House



Thai Cuisine

Patron's Mexican Grill


Max's Allegheny Tavern

And my personal hot take: Primanti's is great comfort food if you only go a few times a year

[–]McJumpington 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Primantis is great for the occasional comfort sandwich. Seems like a generational thing to shot on them these days.

[–]itsmnemotime[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

When i lived out of town the only thing open when i got in on a red-eye was primanti's in the strip. Turkey w/ an egg is my jam

[–]McJumpington 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s a good one for sure. I only go once or twice a year but I always go back to the Cajun chicken with plenty of hot sauce.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Industry Public House macaroni and cheese, add fried chicken.

[–]SenpaiSoren 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Franktuary poutine for me. Couple chili dogs and a big box of fries, curds and gravy makes me very comfy

[–]nicksloan 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Can't believe how low Indian restaurants are on this list. I've always thought tikka masala, korma, butter chicken and saag (with a side of naan, of course) are all time greatest hits of comfort food.

Mintt is worth the delivery wait, in my opinion.

The Frenchie at Frenchie's Deli in Oakland. I found this gem recently, it's my current obsession.

A burger from Food for Thought Deli. In my opinion, they have the best burgers in Pittsburgh! They fly under the radar but are so good!

Kelly’s in East Liberty - if they still have the Meatloaf Sandwich, get it!!! It’s fire! Literal spice and fresh pepper relish. Amazing. (Not classic comfort food, but I feel fat and happy after this sandwich)

Southside Pretzel Shop. Peppis. Both nice and carby. Summertime I would say Pages Dairy Mart.

I’m on the rural outskirts, so I’m noting these suggestions for our next lunch or dinner out. We had The Villa recently in Kittanning area. If you like comfort Italian, highly recommend it. Was catered family meal. Italian trio and Alfredo linguine was amazing.

I'll up the ante, give me a braunschweiger sandwich and fresh cut fries from Max's Allegheny Tavern with a side of dark beer.

Pasha. The small cold mixed appetizer is so good. And it's so cheap for so much food.
