Sauce and Soda offers a tasty selection of Grandma style slices and a number of traditional Italian classics. In addition to their real deal large slices. I devoured the Bushwich Veggie slice with Broccoli, Mushrooms and Peppers. They also make homemade sodas in a number of traditional and not so. The Black Cherry though light in color nailed the Cherry flavor.
Sauce and Soda is located at 40 Wykocff Street
I love an old school Philly style Roast Pork Provolone and Broccoli Rabe sandwich…which of note I think are far superior than that other sandwich they are known for. Carmenta’s Italian Specialties a new, yet classic Italian sandwich shop makes an awesome one (plus they add hot peppers to it). They also carry some assorted goods for the pantry. Their canned Yellow Tomatoes make a great easy peasy to make yourself sauce for pasta.
Carmenta’s is located at 50 Starr Street
Bad Bagel fills the gaping hole of not having a legit Bagel joint by the Jefferson L stop. They offer a large selection of Bagels, Spreads and Sandwich combinations. I tried their Za’atar Bagel…first time I’ve ever seen a Bagel made with this beloved Middle Eastern spice combo. I’ll be back for more.
Bad Bagel is located right next store to Sauce and Soda
When in Bushwich don’t forget to check out all the world class amazing street art. Troutman Street has the best.
