Señor Lanky was luck enough to score us some free tickets to the Symphony this week. We hurried from work to the gym to the Kimmel Center, with nary a moment for a healthy bite to eat, besides the Flavor & Fiber bar we split on the way to our seats. The Symphony (Curtis School, playing a particularly great Berlioz Symphonie Fantastic) ended at 10:30PM, and we stumbled out with rumbling tummies.
Where oh where to get a bite so late on a week night? Good Dog to the rescue, with a kitchen that stays open late and all kinds of veggie options. While I was tempted by the black bean and rice “soup of the day,” I succumbed to the more substantial veggie cake sandwich – a crispy roasted eggplant, scallion, mushroom, lentil and cilantro cake (likely deep fat-fried) on a cibatta with curried mayo, lettuce and tomato. And no, that’s not fake bacon you see. It’s a handful of crispy veggie chips, right on the sandwich. I order the mixed greens with a nice balsamic instead of the fries, gobbled half up, and saved the other for the next days lunch, when it was still delicious.
