Philly has it’s Cheessteak, Baltimore the crabcake, Maine the lobster, and Pittsburgh… the Pimanti Bros.
You have the choice between steak or Pastrami, and when it comes to sandwiches, the answer should always be pastrami. Along with your finely processed meat, the bread is piled high with french fries, tomato, and cold slaw. A Pittsburgh orginal!
Sadly this culinary masterpiece will not inspire a return trip.
As I walked dissapointedly back to the van I passed a pastry shop with a line coming out the door. “Dozen” is small, friendly, and specializes in cupcakes. Cupcakes are fine but how could I resist a cookie jar with the label “double chocolate bacon”? Top that off with a cooler of craft brewed sodas and I’m sold.
