Merrill C. Young Park: A Classic Park and Playground

January 27, 2015 4:02 pm

Merrill C. Young Park promises a quiet, calm setting for lunch on a warm day. It's located just off White Avenue, and it's a reasonable size, according to a Yelp reviewer. Its picnic tables invite guests to bring lunch or dinner and enjoy the scenery, which consists of trees and a blue-and-green playground.

A pair of castle turrets distinguish the playground's jungle gym, complete with swirling blue slide. Nearby, you'll also find a swing set and other basic pieces of playground equipment. The play area resides not far from Merrill C. Young Parks basketball courts, where anyone is welcome to play a pick-up game. The park also plays host to a baseball and softball diamond, a pavilion to prevent events from getting rained out, and plenty of grass for picnic blankets.

Although it doesn't have a paved path, a Yelp reviewer notes that there's still enough space for a leisurely stroll here.

Pin Wei: Authentic Chinese Fare in an Upscale Atmosphere

January 27, 2015 11:40 am

Chunks of cucumber tossed in scallion oil or marinated seaweed. Fish and shrimp swimming in home-style veggies or stir-fried lamb. Tea-smoked duck in an artful arrangement or beef in hot sauce. These are just a few of the spicy Szechuan-style dishes that garner acclaim at King of Prussia's Pin Wei restaurant.

Owned by the Kuo family, who immigrated from Taiwan, Pin Wei is a departure from your typical Chinese restaurant. Instead of snapping up food and taking it home, guests seem to want to sit and stay a while at this chic eatery, which several fans describe as higher-end than they expected. Leather banquettes and chairs, clean and simple place settings, and soft lighting all make Pin Wei a place where you really want to savor your food.

And that's exactly what the Kuo's wanted when they dreamed up their restaurant. In fact, cultivating a comfortable atmosphere was only secondary to crafting authentic Chinese food, which the Kuo's couldn't find anywhere in the area before opening Pin Wei. Regulars seem to agree that the couple has hit the mark, particularly praising the dan dan noodles.
