A burger fiend stranded in a world of vegans.
I very much agree about the cakeshake. One of the best shakes I've ever had.
I really appreciate the use of the word "hoagie."
@gastronomeg, i totally agree on the laughter. It brightened my morning, before I had to go wake up my 9 campers.
Oh wow. So very glad I wasn't around for this taste test. Any milk-like beverage with flecks of anything in it sounds horrible.
I always want something I know is bad for me. The attitude of, "well, I guess I'm justified to eat my feelings, might as well do it right."
@carriebwc. My sausage thing comes from some really bad experiences with breakfast sausages and then carried over into other types. I do like dried sausage and italian sausage, but in general it kindof grosses me out.
@anysuchname. I guess I didn't see a place to describe the "foodie foods" I like, but be assured, I like veggies. True, I like some kid foods (Peanut butter and fluff and juice boxes in particular), but they're often the safest things to eat in a college cafeteria! :)
@wrain. I'm sure that in general, grapes can go on the top shelf, but when they've been recently washed and in a holey bag, the water drips down over everything.
We had milk in plastic bags in my elementary school. This was also the first time I discovered Bacon Bits. I remember loving everything.
In high school, people only got two things. Either a limp salad in a plastic bowl the size of a fist, or curly fries.
Man, I wish I had read this a week ago! I just got back from Rome and this place sounds amazing, I want to jump on a plane and head back. What's the price range?
I'm so glad the other Philly foods are getting their props. We get a little sick of always reading about cheesesteaks and soft pretzels. I also have to agree with Delorenzosfan. I prefer Dinic's as well. I like mine with spinach rather than with broccoli rabe.
My father has had a can of Billy Beer since it first came out. He moved it through 4 houses.
"My Favorite Year." The main character, Benjy, says "Jews know two things: suffering, and where to find great Chinese food."
wowza. like the tower of babel, but working towards deliciousness rather towards heaven...or perhaps the same thing?
This past semester, I lived on peanut butter and fluff sandwiches and juicy juice juice boxes (fruit punch). Some times it's easier/marginally healthier to live like a 5 year old than to eat 3 meals a day at a dining hall where the main offerings are fried chicken wraps and deserts.
The funny thing is, now that I'm abroad in Prague, I still crave those sandwiches on wonderbread.
Cucumbers and ranch on veggie burgers (or regular ones)
I don't like traditional condiments (ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc) nor traditional sandwich toppers (pickles and tomatoes) . Will avoid all like the plague.
This was the first time I was able to go to a burger place recommended by aht. I was wildly disappointed. Perhaps it is because I went to the Times Square location, but it was one of the most mediocre burgers I've ever had. I ordered my burger rare and it was more well done that the picture shown in this article. It was devoid of juice and therefore was a lump of ground beef, not a burger. The burger also had fat pellets, and was unpleasantly chewy. The fries and frizzled onions were lovely, and my dining companion enjoyed her pigs in a blanket. But, I've had better burgers in NY (Island Burgers, various fast food outlets, etcetc) that cost significantly less, but were not mentioned on this site. My faith has now been tested.
