This place is a tradition in Endicott...they serve the "Spiedie." Now how would you pronounce this? The first time I saw it I said Spy-dee. Everyone laughed and said no, it's Spee-dee. WHAT??? Why isn't it spelled "Speedie?"
Anyway...here it is... a Spiedie is slices of chicken or pork marinated overnight or longer in a special marinade, then grilled on spits over a charcoal pit. The freshly prepared slices are served on soft Italian bread and drizzled with the marinade. The marinade recipe varies, usually involving olive oil, vinegar, and a variety of Italian spices and fresh mint.
Brea and I had never had one but had heard so much about them. We stopped and ordered a couple. Brea had the chicken and I had the pork. The meat was a bit dry to my taste...it's nothing really special...at least from this place. It's nothing I would crave and have to have every time I came to Endicott. I must admit I have bought the marinade in the past...they sell it in the local stores here. I use it to marinade fish and beef at home. We grill it on the barbie and it is delicious. I guess I was expecting more from Lupo's.
