Two new restaurants have just signed on to open at King of Prussia Town Center, the new outdoor shopping center designed as a downtown-style hub for the area. Town Center (200 W. Main Street, King of Prussia) is only five minutes from the retail behemoth that is the King of Prussia mall, but unlike at the mall you can sleep there without dodging security guards: It’s set in the middle of The Village at Valley Forge, which has five new residential developments (plus a massive Wegmans and a CHOP site).
The list of Town Center eateries either already open or in the works currently includes Honeygrow, the Brazilian eat-until-you-can’t-take-it-anymore steakhouse Fogo de Chao, Founding Farmers, B.Good, Choolaah Indian BBQ, Naf Naf Grill (Middle Eastern food), Paladar (Latin American), Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, the craft beer-focused City Works, Mission BBQ, and, of course, a Starbucks. A Duck Donuts and a Habit Burger Grill will soon be added to that lineup.
The doughnut shop is originally out of North Carolina’s Outer Banks and named after a town called Duck. These are made-to-order doughnuts, meaning you pick out a coating, a topping, and a drizzled sauce (think: hot fudge). In the coating category, there are the usual suspects, like powdered sugar, glazed, and chocolate or vanilla icing, along with less common options, like peanut butter icing. Toppings range from rainbow or chocolate jimmies — aka sprinkles — to bacon pieces.
If you’re craving savory instead of sweet, Habit Burger Grill’s first Pennsylvania location will be serving up chargrilled beef burgers; chicken, veggie burger, steak, and tuna sandwiches; regular and sweet potato fries; onion rings; flash-fried tempura green beans; several salads; and milkshakes. The restaurant started in California in 1969.
