DaLuca's date

Joy found a famous Pittsburgh restaurant on a TV show, Man vs Food. We had to try it out, so we went Friday for lunch. It's in the Strip District, and I guess on Saturday mornings there's quite a line to get in.

One of their most famous dishes, the hot cake sundae-2 large pancakes topped with a filling (here Granny Smith apple pie filling), vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and a cherry. It's more like dessert than breakfast--it was tasty. (Joy wasn't able to finish hers - good thing I was there to "help" out)
The server, when Joy ordered this, said "Aren't you going to get your meat?" She then had to get a side of bacon . . . classic Pittsburgh.

I ordered a large (it wouldn't fit on the plate) omlette, full of ham, sausage, vegetables, peppers, and topped with 3 cheeses and tomatoes. The home fries were good, too.

YUM! I LOVE food, maybe next time we're in town we'll have to check it out :)
It's so frustrating to be so big that I can't eat as much as I'd like because there's no room-can't wait till January and you have only a couple weeks left!!

That looks like enough food for the whole family! Kind of like Dad's "All Day Burger" in McMinville, Oregon.
