10. London Grill

LONDON GRILL, 2301 Fairmount Avenue, Fairmount

This is, by far, the best value we’ve found during this year’s Food Hunt. Every Monday is Meatball Night at this bar-and-grill up on Fairmount near the museums. For just six bucks, you get a piping hot plate with three large, distinctly different meatballs. Go during happy hour and all the beer – including the Anchor Steam Blood Orange we ordered – is a dollar off. All in all, an enjoyable meal for less than $11.

And those bargain meatballs? Pretty good. The chef changes the lineup every week and is damned creative. One week it’s duck with cherry mostarda, the next it’s lamb and feta, the next, well, you’ll have to find out yourself.

On this March Monday, the base was chicken. And for those who may turn up your nose at chicken meatballs, that would be your mistake. The traditional meatball with cheese in a red sauce was decent. The creamy garlic meatball was l pleasant spin on an Alfredo sauce. And the honey sriracha meatball was spicy enough to make our scalp sweat. Hey, send over another of those Anchor Steams.

Nice effort all around. For price, tastiness and atmosphere, the London Grill wins our admiration. We’ll be back.

Score: 84/100

Police: Man Who Owed Drug Debt Held Against Will For Eight Days, Shot In Shin

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police say on March 10, a 41-year-old male went to a private property on the 3500 block of Stouton Street in Kensington to purchase narcotics. Police say the man selling the narcotics recognized the man as the male who had allegedly stolen crack cocaine from the block in 2016. Once recognized, police believe the Stouton Street man then called several other males in an attempt to collect the money that was owed to them from the complainant for stealing the narcotics.

Police say, roughly five additional males arrived on location armed with handguns and held the complainant against his will inside the house. When the complainant attempted to leave, one of the five men brought to the house shot the man in his left shin. The offenders held the complainant in the house and assaulted him for eight days, forcing him to work off the debt. The complainant sustained a graze wound to his left shin that later became infected.

On Saturday, the man was able to escape from the house and notify police of what occurred.

While enroute to the location, the complainant observed the Stouton Street man that recognized him on March 10 walking on the 1800 block of Atlantic Street; 24th District officers stopped him and took him into custody without incident.

The complainant was transported to Episcopal Hospital for treatment.

The complainant left the hospital against the advice of medical staff. The investigation is active and ongoing with East Detective Division.
