My friend Wes’ love for Sandy’s is something I will probably never understand, but that doesn’t mean I can’t join him for a meal when his Sandy’s craving strikes. The Astronomer and I met up with Wes for lunch at Sandy’s the other day for great conversation and as expected, poor food (at least on my end).
Wes ordered his usual, plus one egg and minus toast. The folks at Sandy’s know Wes so well they start making his food before he even orders! I had the mushroom soup, and the Astronomer ordered a cheesesteak.
Wes enjoyed his egg platter very much. He always orders the same dish because it doesn’t upset his stomach, and it’s a classic breakfast, and he is “a classical kind of guy.”
The Astronomer thought his cheesesteak was decent and on par with the ones served at the Swarthmore College dining hall.
My mushroom soup on the other hand, most likely came from a can. Ick. I was expecting a mushroom barley soup like the one I enjoyed at Veselka in New York City. What I received was a bowl of warmed-up canned cream of mushroom soup. Sadness.
