Having spent a long-ish vacation home in California, eating tacos from the trucks two or three times a day, I had to take a little time off before I ate something I didn't cook again.
But that is over! I've moved to west Philly (in the 40s on Osage--I know, someone is going to tell me this isn't _Really_ west Philly, it's actually some other thing I, as an outsider, didn't realize...), and am getting my bearings on the area eats.
So this evening I headed off to find a bakery a friend had reccomended with a quick gesture a few weeks back. It turns out it's the Genuine Bakery, on Springfield between 45th and 46th. What a fantastic place. Does everyone already know about it??? If not they ought to. The breads are truly fantastic, the pastries delicious and substantive. Best of all, I feel great giving my money to these people. It has all the good vibes of the best family-run places. Plus, the prices are really reasonable. It sure beats the inflated prices at Metropolitan--the bread is good, sure, but $5.00 a loaf?
