What You Get When You Come Home
When I’m not in New York, my hometown is in the part of Southern California known as the O.C., and when I come home, there are a few things I must get because they’re not offered in New York. The first is a cheeseburger and fries from In-N-Out, which costs $3.50. That’s just so amazing to me because a good $5 lunch is desirable, but elusive in NYC, and although it’s not the healthiest option, $3.50 for something made with fresh ingredients is such a deal. Another thing I like to get is a $5 carne asada burrito from the local hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint down the street from my folks’ place, which beats an $11 Chipotle burrito in NYC by a long mile. Last night, I also got a pizookie from a local bar and grill chain named BJ’s. It’s a pizza cookie topped with ice cream, and I haven’t had it in seven years.
