The Coyoty that Ate Pittsburgh: Second Course

I went to Pittsburgh again for this year's Anthrocon, and had some good and not so good Pennsylvania road food and Pittsburgh restaurant food...


Scrambled eggs, hash browns, and gyro meat
Scrambled eggs, hash browns, and gyro meat

With wheat toast and coffee. From I-84 Diner in Fishkill, NY.
The meat turned out to be preformed strips instead of being carved off a gyro rotisserie. It tasted like TV dinner Salisbury steak instead of real gyro.


Sausage and mushroom flatbread pizza

From Paninis and Pizza in the Westin Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.

I've had better frozen pizza. The sauce was generic and the sausage is the pellet kind you find on cheap frozen pizzas.


French toast, bacon, and hash browns

From Big Mama's House of Southern Cuisine in Pittsburgh, PA.

Big Mama does great barbecue, but not so great breakfast, which she was only serving during the Anthrocon convention. The hash browns were exceptional, though.

Egg, cheese, sausage, and bacon sub sandwich and a maple glazed doughnut with bacon crumbles. From Fernando's in Pittsburgh, PA.

Lamb and sirloin burger with shallots, bacon, whole grain mustard, and smoked gouda. From Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh, PA.

From Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh, PA.

Sharp Edge is a new Belgian restaurant that opened on Penn Ave. about five weeks ago.  They have a huge assortment of European beers and a less huge assortment of American beers (both continents).  The food is very good, too.


Western omelet and coffee

From Fadz Sandwich Shop in Pittsburgh, PA.

Don't eat there. Unless you like soot from an uncleaned grill in your food.


Real hickory-smoked BLT and fries

From Plylor Buffet in Brookville, PA.


This was real hickory-smoked bacon, not just hickory flavored. They smoke all their own meats, and the bacon had an intense hickory-smoked flavor you can't get from a supermarket. My friends said the ribs and other meats they got from the buffet were very good, too.
