How ’bout them Birds? Now that the Eagles have defeated the Buffalo Bills, they’ve cemented themselves as football’s best team so far this year and secured a spot in the playoffs. Instead of climbing poles to celebrate, Philadelphians can embark on an Eagles-inspired culinary journey throughout the city with El Merkury, Cake Life Bake Shop, and Poi Dog Sauces!   

While at El Merkury, sports fans with a sweet tooth can swing by to pick up kelly-green Eagles Churros that bring a unique twist, Cake Life’s savory Kielbasa Hungry Dogs may have enough protein to feed an entire offensive line, and, because no football game is complete without wings, Poi Dog is collaborating with Crunchik’n to make the most essential game-day bite, Huli Huli Chicken Wings.  

See below for more details of this lineup tailored for Eagles enthusiasts, and feel free to reach out with any questions you might have!   

Go Birds!


The Eagles Churros($7) at El Merkury, the Central American eatery best known for its traditional street food and stunning churros, are sweet sensations fitted in the team’s iconic Kelly-green colorway and are available for pick-up at both Reading Terminal Market and El Merkury’s Rittenhouse-area Flagship location on Chestnut Street. For foodies who have never tried El Merkury’s homemade churros, all expectations of the typical stick-shaped dessert can be wiped away: The Central American eatery creates churros that are a sight to behold — looping around in a foot-high circle and stuffed down into soft serve, the cinnamon-sugar, crunchy treats are pieces of art. Plus, for sauce fanatics, the churros come with a side of caramel and chocolate for dipping. 

Eagles Churros are available all day Monday through Saturday at El Merkury Chestnut Street, and exclusively on Sundays between 10 am – 6 pm at Reading Terminal Market.   

Full hours of operation:   

Reading Terminal Market: Monday – Saturday, 8am – 6pm, Sunday, 9am – 4pm

Cake Life Bake Shop, the Fishtown bakery best known for award-winning cupcakes and for baking Beyonce’s birthday cake (twice!), has game-time cravings covered with Jason Kelce’s favorite sausage, Kielbasa Hungry Dogs! These touchdown dance fueling snacks, made with a flaky, buttery croissant dough wrapped around Swiacki’s iconic Kielbasa, pay homage to the underdog spirit of the Eagles and can be purchased in a 3-pack in store, ($8) or preordered in a 12-pack ($28) via Cake Life’s website. The bakery also boasts Eagles Cookies ($4.50 for 1 or $49 for 12) that can take any game-day watch party to the next level. 

Fans can ‘swoop’ in on these treats any day during the season (pre-orders or day-of purchases are not limited to game days!) during hours of operation: Wednesday – Thursday 8am – 9pm, Friday – Saturday 8am – 11pm, Sunday 8am – 9pm.

No football game is complete without delicious wings, which is why Poi Dog Sauces, the woman and AAPI-owned line of Hawai’i at-home condiments, has teamed up with Crunchik’n, the woman-owned Korean fried chicken restaurant, to create pineapple-y Huli Huli Chicken Wings –fried Korean style wings marinated for 24-hours in Poi Dog’s signature savory Huli Huli sauce! Eagles fans can step up their kick-off spread exclusively on game days during hours of operation – available for takeout, delivery, and catering, wings can be purchased in the following sizes: 5 wings ($11.45), 8 wings ($16.95), and 10 wings ($17.45). Eagles supporters will also find the Crunch Dog ($7.25), a Korean corndog masterpiece slathered in Poi Dog’s Huli Huli sauce, with notes of sweet pineapple, deeply savory miso, and fragrant Chinese five-spice sauce — the ultimate game changer.  

Crunchik’n hours of operation: Sunday – Thursday, 9am – 9pm, Friday – Saturday, 9am – 10pm
