Have you been to Iowa? or Iowa City for that matter? Well I have. This is the first of the dishes that Brett and I had on our western road trip. I had been to the University of Iowa before for swimming, but we would just go to Olive Garden to eat. On this trip I only had time for one meal, so I had to make it a good one.
The Airliner has been around since 1944 and is famous for their pizza. On a side not, one intriguing item on the menu that I resisted from ordering was the Airbus. I really want one of those shirts, but I decided (well it was more Brett strongly suggesting) that this selection would not be the best idea to start off a 10 day eating trip. Next time I am in Iowa, I will order the Airbus, finish it, and get one of those sweet shirts.
Now back to what I actually ordered. The Airliner has normal cheese pizza, but why try that when I could order a Taco Deep Dish Pizza! Yes that is right Taco Pizza in a Deep Dish Pan!
The deep dish crust was necessary for the amount of toppings on this pizza. I do not usually eat my pizza with a knife and fork, but that was the only way to eat this delicious meal.There were many other great looking pizzas at Airliner, and based upon the taco pizza I am pretty sure you can not go wrong with whatever you choose.
On a completely different note, I am in NYC right now on my way to Vermont for a Farm to Table Weekend at Good Commons. I have never been to Vermont before, but I am excited to see what I find. Next week, I will share with you what I discover. I arrived in NYC around noon to discover that the B&H superstore is 10 blocks from where the shuttle is to pick me up. I had to go and take a visit.
The only other store that has left me with such an overwhelming feeling, was when I was in Austin, TX, and visited the flagship Whole Foods. Visiting the B&H store was what I would call a shopping experience. I usually go to a store knowing what I am going to get and am in and out as fast as possible. Whole foods, B&H, and Ikea are different. They are places that you can go and walk around with no set purchase in mind. When I walk out empty handed from one of these store I do not feel like I have wasted my time.
I have bought many things through B&H’s catalog over the yeas, so it was pretty to cool to see where my purchases actually were shipped from and my money was going. If you are a fan of camera gear I definitely suggest you visit while in NYC.
