Homesick, for elsewhere

There's a new pizza place down the road. Or an old pizza place with a new menu. Or an old pizza place with an old menu that they've stuck 'New' all over. I'm not sure.

What I am sure of is that, when Kate read the menu, I got really homesick for Philadelphia. Which is kinda odd, seeing as I only lived there for two years.

The menu in question was mexican (who on earth would eat a pizza with fajhita strips and gucamole on it?) and the merest mention of soft-cheese stuff jalpeno peppers got me thinking of Chaucer's Bar and the Monday night game. Then I started thinking about the food trucks at Penn. and buritos and those magic meatball sandwiches with cheese.

You can read about some of these places at http://www.iamsilk.com/philadelphia_bars.htm Those Phildelphians out there are welcome to add comments of their own.

Excuse me. I need to go and eat something. With cheese.

I miss Philly, too.
Magic Carpet, soft pretzels, the falafel guy, Nachos at White Dog (among other things)!
Those were the days.
