As you can probably tell, I took a little vacation from the Blog but what you don’t know was that my little break was not sanctioned by the powers to be. So I took a verbal lashing and my blogging privileges were temporarily revoked by “management.” However, with some epic groveling I have been deemed worthy once again to contribute my stories.
To make up for my absenteeism, I have two eateries to share with you from two different coasts. Not to shabby
Yesterday, my buddy Sean and I got together for a run and watched the Sharks game. In our minds, our little 4 mile run justified some indulgence while watching the game. We decided to try out a brand new Vietnamese sandwich shop of Fillmore. In order to get a comprehensive selection of the menu, we decided to split – not one, not two, but three sandwiches.
The three we chose to try were:
1) Pork – Standard pork with their jalapeno spread
2) Sloppy – Ground beef in a red cury sauce topped off with a fried egg
3) Steak – Lime marinated steak with the jalapeno spread
The steak by far was the best of the three. True to the menu, the steak was juicy and had great flavor.
That was yesterday when I was in San Francisco, now I am in New York and for some reason I was craving some NY pie. A co-worker helped me out in satisfying my urge and directed to me John’s pizzeria near the Theater District in Manhattan, which is near my hotel. After I checked in, I headed out to find this joint. When I got there, I was little disappointed because on the main sign it clearly stated “No Slices.” I really was not in the mood to eat a heavy meal but I was in no mood to go hunt for another pizza-joint. When I walked in the place was packed, which surprised me. It was so crowded, that I had to wait a few minutes just to get a seat at the bar.
After perusing the menu, I decided to order the Large Margherita because it was only $2 dollars more than the small. It seemed like a logical choice because the $2 extra dollars got me 2 extra slices. Steal
The pizza was amazing and I ate way more than I should have. But I am proud to say that I am not a member of the “clean plate club” this time around.
I have a busy month ahead of me. I am spending a couple of days in NY before I head to Boston to cap off my week. When I get back to the SF, immediately the next day I head to Indiana. After that I have Chi-town and the dirty south (Atlanta) on the docket.
I’ll be trying new an exciting places so stay tuned.
Strength and Honor,
