Yes, the raisins were wonderful additions to the rice pudding, and Salisbury Steak was always my favorite as well. We would also pick up what I believe were hot cross buns -- a small package of perhaps 8 buns that had a cross of icing on them, and small pieces of dried fruit (similar to a fruitcake). Maybe perhaps pieces of sugar sprinkled on them if my memory serves me right.

Every time I went downtown Philadelphia I bought 2 or 3 pint size containers of rice pudding to bring home for the family. By the time I took the Broad Street Subway from Walnut to Wyoming Avenue stop and the 75 bus to 8th Street it was all gone. I just couldn't stop eating it. It was simply delicious and the best. Of course, when I arrived at my house with no rice pudding I got into arguements because I did not bring any home.
Currently I am in Lima, Peru where they sell rice pudding on almost every corner but nothing compares to H&H's. I saw the H&H recipe online but it did not include the raisins, which I also loved. I wish H&H could make a comeback.

My grandmother lived at the Bellevue Stratford in Phila. across the street from "Hornie's" as she called it, and would take me and my siblings there for dinner quite often. I loved sitting at the counter and ordering my favorite, Salisbury Steak, and creamed spinach. And of course afterward, I would order Postum so I could pretend I was drinking coffee like the grown-ups.
Too bad they are gone, because I think, today, they would be very popular again.
