Who Knew ?

Who knew you could find something deliciously healthy in South Philadelphia?

About a year ago I was working in a photography studio just up the street from 8th and Dickinson. The job was great but come lunchtime there was only two choices for lunch - Greez, or greez with a side of fried greezy sticks (greeze juice for dipping optional).

I began eating inventive things like saltines with yellow mustard, or ketchup on pickles (kind of like vegetables, right...?)

One of the two choices was Cosmi's Deli. It was a half a block away so we ended up going there a ton. My coworkers raved about the cheesesteaks, and I protested and became dehydrated from the unnaturally high sodium intake brought on by my "vegetables".

Then one day a shining light came from the heavens in the form of the Grilled Blackened Yellowfin Tuna salad.

I don't know what to say about it other then it is a cool drink of water on a hot day... a diamond in the rough if you will... a godsend.

Fresh veggies, an extreme piece of grilled fish... a delicious ray of sunshine.

I love you Cosmi's for reintroducing water to my suffering body.
