Unusual Chow Destination in Mt. Airy

Bashful3 | May 18, 2004 03:33 PM

I went on a Muffellata hunt, on a quest to duplicate the New Orleans thrill sandwich.

Well, it isn't the same. On the other hand, it was wonderful. Hoagie shaped semolina roll of excellent quality; nice meat/cheese quality/quantity; "authentic" olive salad imported from New Orleans. For $6.50 this was one heck of a sandwich, even if it didn't quite excite the way the Central Grocery Muff did.

Desserts? All original in concept and execution. I chose key lime pie that was like no other I ever ate--but it hit the spot anyway. $3-$4 for desserts; all homemade.

And the rest of the menu shows an inovative hand--free range buffalo, catfish, soups, Middle Eastern specialties. In Mt Airy, at 7105 Emlen St, not far off Lincoln Drive. A worthy Chow destination for light lunch, supper, snacks.

Small attractive cafe; not open Monday or Sunday.
