Salvatore Pizza, Pasta & Subs could be the Poster Child for the red sauce- mom & pop- Italian pizza joint industry!

Jeff Eats loves this joint with all my heart and soul!- (I know, a bit over-dramatic).

It’s just too bad that it’s such a schlep from my Boca Raton abode to Hialeah!

I singled-out Salvatore’s pizza to get the conversation started- but trust Jeff Eats when I tell you guys, it’s all good at this joint!

Let’s call Salvatore Pizza “an out of sight, out of mind” mom & pop- red sauce- Italian joint…

First told you guys about Salvatore Pizza on November 10, 2014- hadn’t been back until last night’s “drama” dinner with Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats. Why such a long hiatus between visits?- Salvatore Pizza’s Hialeah location and Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode aren’t exactly “next door” to one another. Why the “drama”?- As I’m sure it’s the same with your family- That’s the $64,000 question!

Long story short, this joint’s food is off the chart delicious. You live, you work, you play in Salvatore Pizza’s neighborhood- you gotta give it a shot!

Got a real good one for you…Salvatore Pizza, Pasta & Subs in Hialeah.

First things first,

You guys know and Jeff Eats knows, that “mom & pop”-red sauce Italian joints are a dime a dozen down here in South Florida. No ifs ands or buts, almost every dumpy-strip center has one of them. For the record, we also know-that these strip center pizza joints aren’t solely- indigenous (I did go to college)- to South Florida, all 50 states got them…

Anyway,

Jeff Eats and a couple of buddies recently had lunch at Salvatore Pizza and I gotta tell you, I loved the joint.

When you check Salvatore Pizza’s menu at salvatoreinhialeah.com, you’re gonna find the expected full-boat of appetizers/pizzas/pastas/subs/salads/calzones-stromboli/entrees/desserts.

Jeff Eats and Buddies Jeff Eats ordered…veal parm sub (8″-$9), meatball sub (8″-$7), large plain pizza (16″-$11), calzone ($13) and I-must tell you, Salvatore Pizza killed it! No fooling here, everything was delicious.

Now, you guys know that Jeff Eats really isn’t into lists or rankings, but the- calzone stuffed with ricotta/mozzarella/romano cheeses definitely deserved a special shout-out! So- HELLO CALZONE!!

Nothing fancy going on at Salvatore Pizza. Solid and I do mean SOLID pizza joint stuff.

Like I said 4 seconds ago, Jeff Eats loved Salvatore Pizza.

The perfect Jeff Eats’ lunch…red sauce galore, loads of Coca Cola, good friends, plenty of napkins and no Mrs. Jeff Eats’-drama… bitching about- how I was stuffing my face, hadn’t taken a “lactose” pill and how I would be up all night gagging from indigestion.

Salvatore Pizza, Pasta & Subs is open Monday-Thursday 10am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 10am-11pm, Sunday noon-10pm.

Trader Joe’s Pepperoni Pizza Mac & Cheese Bowl (Trader Joe’s- Boca Raton)

Posted on January 13th, 2018 · American Boca Raton Fast Food Italian Pizza · No Comments »

Trader Joe’s Pepperoni Pizza Mac & Cheese Bowl.

Long story short,

The other day while shopping at Trader Joe’s, 855 South Federal Highway, Boca Raton, Florida 33432, (561) 338-5031- Jeff Eats came across and purchased the above pictured Trader Joe’s Pepperoni Pizza Mac & Cheese Bowl ($2.99)- and all I can say- is that even Secretariat lost (twice to be precise)! Just a subjective call (what I like you may hate and vice versa)- Trader Joe’s missed by a mile with this- Pepperoni Pizza Mac & Cheese Bowl! What sounded like a dream combo- pepperoni/pizza sauce/mac & cheese ended up in the garbage pail after 2 bites! Bad news!- But like I just said, purely a subjective call!

from traderjoes.com

There are foods you eat every day, and there are foods you dream about eating. Those dream foods exist only in your imagination, and bring you such immense pleasure in the abstract. But they’re not real. What if we told you we made a dream come true?

Trader Joe’s Pepperoni Pizza Mac & Cheese Bowl (henceforth, Pizza Mac & Cheese) began as a dream, and we made it a reality. Each Bowl begins as ordinary mac & cheese, a classic combination of elbow macaroni and Cheddar cheese. Our foray into food fantasy takes shape with the addition of tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and slices of uncured pepperoni. It’s not fancy; it is fantastic! With every bite, your palate will puzzle the answers to: Is this pizza? Is this mac & cheese? We assure you; it’s both! You’re welcome.

One of the dreamiest things about our version is you can buy it at Trader Joe’s and have a hot forkful in your mouth in about six minutes. (That’s prepped in the microwave; conventional oven requires about half an hour cooking time.)

We’re selling each 12 ounce Pepperoni Pizza Mac & Cheese Bowl for $2.99 – even the price is dreamy!

For more than forty years, Robert Klein has entertained audiences, and he continues to have an acclaimed career in comedy, on Broadway, on television, and in film.
2014 and 2015 have been busy years for Klein. He’s appeared on “Madame Secretary” starring Tea Leoni on CBS, “Sharknado 2: The Second One” and ”Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” starring Ian Ziering, on Syfy. Most recently, he guest stars as Laura Diamond’s grouchy but loveable father, Leo, on NBC’s “The Mysteries of Laura” starring Debra Messing. He is also the subject of a new documentary, “Robert Klein: Still Can’t Stop His Leg”, for the Weinstein Company, which premiered on Starz, March 31st, 2017.
Born in the Bronx, he was a member of the famed “Second City” theatrical troupe in Chicago.

He was nominated twice for Grammy Awards for “Best Comedy Album of the Year” for his albums “Child of the Fifties” and “Mind Over Matter.”

He received a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor, and won a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for his performance in the hit Neil Simon musical, “They’re Playing Our Song.” In 1993, Klein won an Obie and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in Wendy Wasserstein’s, “The Sisters Rosensweig.”

In 1975, Klein was the first comedian to appear in a live concert on Home Box Office. He has gone on to do nine one-man shows for HBO and received his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music and Lyrics in 2001 for Robert Klein: “Child in His 50’s.” Klein released “Robert Klein: The HBO Specials 1975-2005,” a collector’s DVD box set to critical acclaim.

His most recent special for HBO, “Robert Klein: Unfair and Unbalanced” aired on June 12th, 2010 and is also available as a DVD. This special earned him a second Emmy nomination in 2011 for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.

Among dozens of starring and guest-starring roles on television, he co-starred in the hit NBC series, “Sisters,” has a recurring guest-starring role on “Law and Order” and has guest starred on “The Good Wife” and “Royal Pains.” He regularly appeared on talk shows, making more than 100 appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Late Show with David Letterman.” Currently, he can be seen on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” where he is a show favorite and on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
Klein has also appeared in many notable films including, “Hooper,” “The Owl and the Pussycat,” “Primary Colors,” “People I Know,” “Two Weeks Notice,” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” and “The Back-Up Plan” with Jennifer Lopez.
“The Amorous Busboy of Decatur Avenue,” his first book for Simon & Schuster, is an affectionate coming-of-age memoir about growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s before embarking on a show business career. In it he recounts his journey from an apartment in the Bronx, developing his talent in Chicago and the beginning of his show business stardom. The book is
pure Robert Klein: witty, honest, self-questioning and always contagiously funny. Publishers Weekly wrote: “…he unfurls an array of captivating anecdotes, writing with wry wit and honesty.”
Robert, a lifelong New Yorker, makes his home in Westchester and New York City.

Trader Joe’s Chocolate Pecan Pie Bar (Trader Joe’s- Boca Raton)

Posted on January 12th, 2018 · American Boca Raton Desserts Fast Food · No Comments »

***** Trader Joe’s Chocolate Pecan Pie Bar.

Yesterday, while shopping at Trader Joe’s, 855 South Federal Highway, Boca Raton, Florida 33432, (561) 338-5031- Jeff Eats came across and purchased one of the above pictured $6.99-Trader Joe’s Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars and I gotta tell you guys, that it was so delicious that last night- I ate the entire 15.7oz Chocolate Pecan Pie Bar while watching the 1 hour and 58 minute tv pay-per-view showing of the film- Marshall! Am I proud of myself? Yes I am!

Let me close by saying, that unless you are allergic to pecans and/or chocolate- you gotta try Trader Joe’s Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars! By the way, Jeff Eats loved Marshall and I’m getting a bit tired of Trader Joe’s employees always being so happy and polite!

from traderjoes.com

More often than not, pies are round. This pie is not—it’s rectangular, which is why we decided to call it a “bar.” Shape isn’t too important, though, because Trader Joe’s Chocolate Pecan Bar is still pie-like—and a delicious, melt-in-your-mouth pie-but-not-pie treat, at that.

A filling made of brown sugar, semi-sweet chocolate, and butter rests in a flaky pastry crust and is hand-topped with pecan halves. It’s equally suited for a holiday dessert tray or a tasty after-a-giant-turkey-meal treat. The bar shape allows for a variety of serving options: do you prefer squares, or smaller bars? Perhaps even triangles? What we’re saying is you’re not confined to the classic “pie wedge.” And, there are corner pieces (four, to be exact) for all those pie crust lovers.

We’re selling each 15.7-ounce Chocolate Pecan Pie Bar for $6.99, throughout the holiday season.
