Good Dog Bar <---

Good dog bar is a little joint that more people need to know about. With a small bar downstairs and seating area up stairs enough to fit maybe 20 people, this humble restaurant is a little secret that is cozied up on South 15th st between Locust and Walnut in Philadelphia's center city. If you like the idea of Gushers, or Starburst GummiBursts then you're really going to enjoy a Good Dog Burger.

The Menu is extensive from soups and salads, to small bites that range from wings to BBQ Pork Sliders, big bites like NY strip and Duck Pot Pie, and finally the burgers that include the famous Good Dog Burger: a 1/2 lb of ground sirloin filled with gooey-melty roquefort cheese and topped with caramelized onions on a brioche bun. I don't fuck around with anything but the burgers.

This burger is probably one of my favorites and definitely my favorite burger in Philly. It's served alongside sweet potato fries and a aioli sauce which I usually end up using to dip my burger in, and the cheese inside melts in your mouth. It's a bit messy at times, but I believe that almost all messy foods are delicious.

Basically this place is worthy of a trip, or a subway ride for a great burger, and I highly recommend it. Also its worth mentioning that there are photos of dogs everywhere- cat lovers beware.

IKEA food <---

This past weekend I began college shopping (pt 1), which included a trip to Ikea. I was unaware that in order to get the whole "Ikea experience" one needed to not only walk through the entire store which is already massive, but also to enjoy the fine swedish dining Ikea offers.

Let me start off by saying that the Ikea restaurant itself looks more like a college dining hall than a restaurant, so prepare to grab a tray and utensils. However, the seating area is quite nice and has a very Ikea-modern-esque feel. I got the swedish meatballs which is served alongside mashed potatoes, gravy and lingonberry sauce. The meatballs went great with the creamy gravy and the lingonberries, which are much like cranberries, tasted really nice along with the lingonberry juice. I later purchased lingonberry syrup so that I could make this wonderful drink at home. Fucking lingonberries. The mashed potatoes were as potatoey as you would want them and covered with rich gravy, which when accompanied with a bit of garlic bread was also a great C-C-Combo.

Ikea food is highly underrated and my meal only cost around 6 bucks! Maybe next time I'll skip trudging through the entire store and just get some meatballs.

Also, in the time I wrote this I found that IKEA is an acronym that stands for the founders name Ingvar Kamprad, where he grew up Elmtaryd, and his parish Agunnaryd. Conceited prick!
