Yesterday for dinner I couldn't decide where to go -- everyplace felt old and uninteresting. Eventually I came across Turquoise, which is a local Turkish shop, and grabbed some take-out from there. Baklava seems to be one of those things that, despite being oversweet, I really like. As some of you who know me in person know, I call it J.S., as part of a bad pun (J.S. Bachlava). Turquoise has a pretty neat selection of food, and it also feels delightfully foreign, with an ambiance much like some Turkish shops I went to in Europe, "learn English" and "learn Turkish" signs competing with each other on the wall, and a storekeeper speaking rapidly in Turkish to another customer. Still, I'm having wanderlust again.. although it's not exactly wanderlust, more like "move-lust", as in more thoughts that I should leave Pittsburgh for someplace new. I think in about a year or so I likely will do that.
Today for lunch, I returned to the wonderful Crepes place on Craig. Their dessert crepes arn't as good as their lunch crepes, although perhaps that rating is because I don't tend to like desserts very much anymore. The subtleties of flavour in meal-type food is more interesting than the "W@u!! SW33Tz0R!" appeal of candy.. that, and I don't want to turn into one of the increasingly frequent fat/disgusting/nauseating people I see around town. Returning to the Crepes topic, the Spinach-cheese (meal) crepe is wonderful.
