Veg Out: Paesanos

Paesano's is like a Girard Avenue man cave.

Needless to say, the staff was very attentive when I invaded the construction-worker-deep lunch counter.

I was here for the chickpea panelle, a $4 wrap that would command $8 elsewhere.

The Jaeatyet t-shirts and trays of drying eggplant entertained me during my wait, as well as male chatter about women who are small in front, which is always a treat.

I made the two-minute trek back to the apartment. My wrap was intensively moisturized with godzuki sauce and ribbons of roasted tomato. I took in the spicy-creamy material on its thin, charred flatbread with pleasure. For $4, this tops most options in my lunch zip by far.
