OK, OK, so maybe this is not in the City of Philadelphia. Alright, it’s not even in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. But, it is close enough for Kim and I to take a trek out to Robinsville, NJ and grab some pizza. What? You are not in the mood for pizza? Then don’t go to De Lorenzo’s Tomato Pies because that is pretty much all they have. Yes, they have some salads and soda (BYOB) but that is it.

Kim and I continue to search and search for a good bowl of Pho. We received a coupon for Pho Thai Nam a few weeks ago and we decided to give it a try. Recently, we have been disappointed by Pho at both Vietnam and Wild Rice. Both of these establishment had OK Pho, but nothing as good as South Philly.

Well, what do you expect. We get a call from my brother at 5:00 PM to join us for dinner at 7:00 PM at Pasta To Go (PTG). Its a BYOB, its in Roxborough, how bad can it be.

Well, it was quite good. I was surprised. It seems PTG was/is a catering outfit that has morphed into a restaurant as well. This is often a questionable decision by the owner, as it is my experience that caterers often get the food right, but often miss a step when it comes to service and decor.
