    Thanks for coming out hiding, FarmerL! That is a nice selection of eating.

    A Cambodian salad of crisp fried mackerel, fried garlic, peanuts, mint... @ Hermosa restaurant hit it out of the park on every level.

    Hello all - I literally found LTH this morning and love it! So I'm brand-new. Also stumbled on a new cuisine, (Yemeni) and sharing this somewhat-hidden gem, Sheeba Mandi (on Foster just west of Kimball). Mutapq and Chicken Zurbian, fantastic. They also list a "Salta" (veg stew) with fenugreek foam that sounded interesting, may try that next!

    Got a couple of “Old Fashioned Hot Dog Weiners” from Paulina Meat Market, steamed a Rosen hot dog bun with poppy seeds and dragged it through the garden. Wow. So good. Paulina’s pork brats are superb too.

    Off topic but I still kind of hate that this topic is always at the top. At first I would click on it all the time, thinking there was a new posting. Then I just stopped looking and ended up missing the newish postings (although newish is a misnomer cause it can be a whole month between comments). Not a big deal but I do find it really irritating- can’t people just do a search for the topic when they want to post?

    I've unpinned it. Let's see how it goes. :)

    Thanks,

    Vegetale Pizza at Galucci, but with a tomato sauce base. And the Fritto Appetizer (vegetarian with ricotta cheese and Lemon rid dusting).

    The Vegetale is in the Bianco section, but I like the sauce so the Pizziola made it for me with sauce. I sat at the bar next to the oven and saw the whole process. Dude put a fresh log on the fire, then made the pizza, fired it up, and was done in about 90 seconds!!

    The Appetizer was fantastic too. Airy fried bread; topped with whipped Ricotta di Bufala, dusted with Lemon rind.

    This place is fantastic. I feel bad that I don't go here more often.

    Agreed! We had a great lunch there before the Van Gough experience around the corner. Thought the food was great (maybe not quite Spacca Napoli level, but what is...), service was excellent, and I was disappointed to see the place nearly empty despite it being a Saturday afternoon.

    We don't live nearby but hope to return soon!

    Truffle Pizza at Pazza Pizza in Old Town.

    For 20 bucks for a small (12 inch), I thought it would be a mushroom pate with 'truffle oil'. Nope. Real Truffles mixed in. I also like their Veggie Calzone.

    It was fabulous.

    ETA: I was there again and saw he was using imported 00 flour from Naples for his pizzas. I did not expect that. He's an immigrant from the Balkans and I always enjoy talking to him while waiting for my pizza.

    Had the Shrimp and Grits at Wishbone today and they were very good. Really nice portion size which I could only eat half. Warm corn muffin put it over the top. Funny that I used to like the vibe of Wishbone much more than the actual food. Don’t know if I changed or they changed.

    From LTHF member "eating while walking"'s italian beef document, I got to Quick Bite stand @ N. Western Ave. & W. Foster Ave.
    Its menu is vast. Occasionally, you view exasperation from a reviewer perceiving the stand cannot do a quality job on all its menu items. But the identifying clue here can be glimpsed in the first photograph below: A Scala Beef neon sign. :!:
    This is definitely worthy of more consideration in italian beef 'top 10' rankings. I asked for hot peppers, dipped. The beef was well sliced. The bread held together. The peppers were spicy, not fiery. This was a very savory sandwich.
    Image Image Quick Bite may seem to be off the beaten path, until you recollect Western Ave. is definitely on the beaten path. :roll:
    You could stop by here and take it to Spiteful Brwg. on Balmoral Ave. (But not Half Acre Brwg. It has a food menu.)
    The stand is cash only. There are six seats inside the stand. Older descriptions mention limited outdoor seating; but I did not view any chairs or tables. YMMV. :|

    I shared this with Mr. X. He owes me. (edited to add: cinnamon roll from Lost Larson)

    no pics, but i had the egg/longanisa/cheese on-a-martin's-potato-roll sandwich at kasama in Ukrainian village today. as long as one has proof of vaccination, it's ok to eat in their very charming dining room. there's also a lovely patio... what a terrific spot for relaxing and just hanging out.
