5 Spot: Serious Sliders
We have to admit, when the slider trend took off a couple years ago, we weren’t exactly on board with the petite patties. But now, we like the variety they can bring, making them easy to share or keep to yourself without feeling overly full. This month, we took a closer look at some mouthwatering offerings in the tri-county area and found plenty more than just ground beef being placed between the buns.
The Kibitz Room: Sliders
This NYC-style deli is known for their larger-than-life sandwiches, but they also dial it back with their petite sliders on small rye bread discs that cover everything from tuna, brisket, turkey, pastrami and corned beef specials. 100 Springdale Rd., Cherry Hill, (856) 428-7878
Redstone Grill: Breakfast Sliders
Sliders get an early wake-up call with eggs, sausage and cheese covered in a hollandaise sauce. 500 Route 73 S., The Promenade at Sagemore, Marlton, (856) 396-0332
Annata Wine Bar: Filet Mignon Cheesesteak Sliders
Tender cuts of beef are topped with lettuce, tomato, crispy onions and your choice between aged cheddar or gorgonzola cheeses. 216 Bellevue Ave., Hammonton, (609) 704-9797
Marlene Mangia Bene: Meatball Sliders
Served at lunchtime only, this trio consists of one beef stuffed with mozzarella, one pork and one veal selection all cloaked in rich, homemade gravy. 43 S. Broad St., Woodbury, (856) 848-8488
Throwbacks Bar & Grill: Asian Chicken Sliders
There’s a whole slider menu here with everything from a French dip version to a chicken parm offering, but we love the grilled teriyaki chicken with Asian cabbage piled atop. 2929 Route 130 S., Delran, (856) 461-2419
