What’s Cooking on 1060: Coffee, Cooking Demos, and ‘Molcajete’
By Hadas Kuznits
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Ori Feibush, owner of the OCF Coffee Houses, has opened another coffee shop, this one at 2100 Fairmount Avenue, near Eastern State Penitentiary.
What does OCF stand for?
“It’s my initials,” he explains. “I wasn’t that creative when we initially picked the name — so, Ori Chaim Feibush.”
“This is our third coffee shop,” Feibush tells KYW Newsradio. “We have two real estate offices on South Street, and then three coffee shops.”

Over at the Market & Shops, downstairs at the Comcast Center, 17th and JFK Boulevard, retail manager Joe Wolf (below) says they will be hosting lunchtime cooking demonstrations next Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, January 8th-10th.
“Prior to the weeks of Restaurant Week (which runs Jan. 20-25 and Jan. 27-Feb. 1), we have some of the chefs come in and do their little schtick over here,” Wolf says.
(Kuznits:) “So it’s like a show!”
(Wolf:) “It’s very much like a show — and they bring enough sampling for at least 200 people.”

At Xochitl restaurant, on Headhouse Square in South Philadelphia, general manager Adam Solomon says they are celebrating the new year by rolling out their traditional molcajete dinners.
“It actually refers to the bowl,” Solomon says. “The bowl is called a molcajete. It’s made of lava rock, it goes in the oven, it will keep all the food hot as it sits at your table as you’re making your own little tacos with all the different mixed grill stuff in it.”
