So, I like Philadelphia. It’s totally growing on me.
My first trip was a random day in my junior year of college when I decided I wanted a Philly cheesesteak and drove up with some friends for the day. And no, I didn’t go to Geno’s. I’ve gone back five or six more times since, and the more I see- the more I like.
There must have been something in the water here in St. Mary’s because I have three [three!] friends from high school who go/went to pharmacy school at Temple. It’s a little weird, but I embrace it because I have a constant invitation 🙂 Sure, it’s a little rough around the edges, but it adds character! Plus, the food is excellent.
Ahh the food. Let’s talk about that shall we?
Last weekend I went up to celebrate my friend’s 24th birthday and we ate well. Really well.
The first night we went to a restaurant near her apartment called Fare, and to say it was excellent is an understatement. We started off with mussels and wine then finished with pork osso bucco and a bison burger. I’m still thinking about it.
Breakfast the next morning? My favorite coffe shop evaaa, Mugshots. The espresso there is amazing. I doesn’t hurt the food is great too [and healthy!]. I stuffed myself on a Black Beauty smoothie and an egg, cheese, and pesto sandwich. Still thinking about that meal too.
Dinner Saturday? Possibly the best, but it’s close. We did a tapas style meal with 7 of us at Continental. Think cheesesteak egg rolls, korean pork tacos, brushetta, tuna tartar. [If I say I’m still drooling over this meal too is that too much? I should just stop shouldn’t I?Yeah, probably…]
Oh Philly, you’ve won me over with your food and good company.
