Particularly that of New York. When I went on a trip to the Met yesterday I had to stop for lunch with a friend. Here’s my question:
WHY DID IT COST ME $23.60 FOR A LESS THAN ADEQUATE LUNCH?!!?
All I had was dry, 70%-breading chicken tenders and nasty fries, a Coke and a cookie. $23….
Does this make sense? No.
In Philadelphia, I can buy a large plain cheesesteak, volcano fries and a slice of pizza with a large Coke for $10.25. It will also be delicious: the cheesesteak will be smothered in cheese and perfectly greasy, the volcano fries will be just…deadly, and the pizza has the perfect amount of sauce on it.
In short: I hate living in a food town, because when I leave it, I can never be satisfied.
(Felt the same way in Indiana, surprisingly.)
Yet, I think it’s because Philadelphia has such cheap good food that we have the highest obesity rate of the largest cities in America…..25 cents for a whole pack of Swedish fish…..what is this…
