I stopped in Pittsburgh to meet a friend for lunch. She asked what I wanted to eat and when I said ‘something Pittsburgh-y’ it seemed that there was no option other than to go to Primanti Brothers.
It really is a monster of a sandwich with whatever meat (or fish) you choose, french fries and coleslaw. I have to admit I wimped out on the sandwich. It didn’t really appeal to me and having done nothing but sit in the car all morning, I wasn’t hungry enough to tackle one myself. I had some chili cheese fries, which came covered in a blizzard of bacon bits.
Needing to stretch my legs and curious to see a little more of Pittsburgh, we went for a walk around The Strip neighborhood and poked around the Pennsylvania Macaroni Company with its various rooms of cheeses, olives, pasta and produce. The cheese and olive selections were particularly impressive.
Back on the road – next stop Lancaster.
