Small but important achievement

I may not have found an apartment, but I did find my local pizza store: Primavera Pizza and Pasta. Just like your doner kebab or falafel guy in Germany or your Coney Island hot dog guy in Detroit, finding your local pizza guy is critical. He plays an important role in the happiness of your stomach, without breaking the bank. The “slice” I had for lunch was classic NY pizza—thin, cheesy, sprinkled with pepper flakes and Italian seasoning and cost just $2.25… delicious! For those who don’t know, NY pizza is eaten by folding it in half longways.

In other news, I found Ritter Sport chocolate at a store around the corner. Is Ritter Sport chocolate non grata at work? Should I switch to Cadbury? No way! I'll just eat the whole bar by

Basically, I will never understand why not any Pizza dude in the US except for real Italians in the East will know who to put Gamberetti or Tonno on a Pizza.

There was no fish on the pizza at Primavera Pizza and Pasta. I don't know why we aren't more authentic. But then again, why do Germans put corn on their pizza? My personal favorite is green olives on pizza, but that's a rare topping on either side of the Atlantic.

Glad you liked Berlin Adventures. I must admit being a bit confused my the rest of your comment. But thanks for commenting, nonetheless:-)

I actually think that he was trying to insult you . . . saying that your blog is as boring as the "diatribes of a mad housewife." If this is his intention, I could not disagree more! Your writing skills are amazing -- such wit and honesty! And, you always manage to get into such unusual situations. Keep writing Erin!!

Mmmmhh, NYC Pizza... I can just smell it. And see the teeny tiny pepper sprinkles.
The best pizza I had in NY was white pizza (you know, the one with ricotta and stuff) at a place across the street from the Columbia University Bookstore. Me wants it now!
