Hey! Italian Sandwich

What? A post so soon?  In the same month as another?  I know.  Unbelievable. Just call yourself lucky today!  It's 10/10/10 after all!

Rowdy found this place on YELP (which is our favorite thing ever these days to find reviews for restaurants near by) and we will be forever grateful.  I have been itch'n to go since we heard about it...and finally...we did just that.

Hey Paison!  located at 641 SW 152nd St. Burien, Wa 98166

I love you like a meatball loves marinara.  With garlic bread on the side.  And a slice of cheesecake for dessert.  Just say'n.

PROS:  So so many. The reviews are spot on.  Terrific meatball sandwich.  I am from the East coast and I absolutely loved coming here.  Homemade cheesecake in a glass case while meatball sauce drips down your chin can bring tears to a girl where I am from. Good tears, that is.

The sausage is shipped straight from New Jersey and I spotted a Dr. Brown's root beer in the fridge.  Huzzah.  I also heard that their Philly cheese steak is A*May* we'll have to check out the comparison to our newest Philly love next time we head over.

CONS:  They are only open until 6pm on weekdays and 7pm on weekends.  Kinda kills date night around here.  A lunch date with children, perhaps?  They actually provide FREE pasta for the kiddos for eat-in dining. I was lamenting about those hours since I basically work during them, but Rowdy cheered me up by saying that it must be amazing if they can afford to close down shop so early. He was right.

PS *I think there are a total of 4 come prepared to grab and go if you are in a rush.

PPS* My son had to run to the bathroom while we were there and took FOREVER (he didn't have a nap and we certainly paid for it that night.)  I left one last bite at the table and when I came back all the food was boxed and ready for take-out. last bite was no where to be found.  No one will admit who did it, either.  Let's just say I won't make the same mistake twice.

PPPS* The gal at the counter totally hit on Rowdy while I was away.  Marinara with a boost of self-esteem?  Could we get it to go, please?

Philly Cheese Steak, Anyone?

This place is awesome. 
 And I should know.
I'm from Pennsylvania, after all.

We made a quick jaunt to a part of town we have surprisingly never been to.  We knew it would be some good artery clogging stuff, but we have green smoothies daily and figured they might cancel some of the cheeseiness out, right?  Geez, I hope so.

Definitely head on over to The Original Philly's located at 3019 MLK Jr. Way South Seattle, WA 98144.

We ordered the original cheese steak, pepper cheese steak, and cheese fries which our kids gobbled up.  Even as take-out they were super steamy with hot thin steak and melted cheese.  Large sandwich portions so we had plenty of leftovers and it would be easy to share just one. 
It was also a bit hole-in-the-wall which is right up our ally, anyway. 
 (love the pun-intended imagery? funny, right?)

Although they really can't compete with the real deal from PA, it's a quick Seattle fix for sure. turns out that the owner IS from Philly.  A good sign, I think.

As an insanely huge bonus, they had Tastykakes which are a trip down memory lane for this Rowdy Girl.  Butterscotch Krimpet, please.  

YELP gave it 4 out of 5 stars, and we would have to agree.
