Lightning Round!

t says:  My phone has sooo many photos.  And while I wish I could have posted on each one, I know it just isn’t going to happen.  So get ready for another lightning round!!


Nom nom ramen has opened up an outpost in University City.  And you know what, despite our lack of enthusiasm when the original Center City location opened up (over 2 years ago!), this spot is actually pretty good!  I think you just have to go in with the mindset: “I’m here for a quick lunch”, and alluvasudden, their ramen really hits the spot.  Does that mean I have lower expectations at lunch?  Maybe.  But really, I suspect there is an element of Nom Nom stepping up their game – their broth is just so much more flavorful.  Be prepared if you order to go: they will pack it in separate containers for you to assemble at your leisure.


Nestled deep in Vineland is an eatery called Chestnut Diner.  They have a pretty amazing pancake with nutella, grama cracker, banana … and it’s pretty amazing.  Fancy?  No, but it sure hit the spot – and you know we’ll be back with this amount of sugar …


We held a farewell ceremony the other day … a farewell to summer.  While some people hold barbecues, g and I do something a little different.  You see, there is a dish that we can only make outside due to how much it reeks, and that is kimchi jige.   At the risk of patting myself on the back: it was damn delicious.  If you have access to kimchi, shove it in the fridge for at least 2 weeks (sealed), and make yourself some dinner … outside …


I didn’t actually have this one, but it looked awesome.  Talula’s Daily looks like it’s still killing it out there – we’ve gotta do dinner there again.


And, in our ode to kp (who we’ll be visiting in November), here’s some southern inspiration in chocolate form.
