Meeting the Hunger Needs

I would visit Original Village Pizza for lunch one day. I had come to understand they are a restaurant that is very well known and popular, as shown at Menupages.com at http://philadelphia.menupages.com/restaurants/original-village-pizza/, and Yelp.com, at http://www.yelp.com/biz/original-village-pizza-philadelphia.

It only became clear, after I found they make the Original Village Sausage Parmigiana Sandwich, that it was a priority to see just was Original Village Pizza has to offer.

The Setting

The restaurant is a large place. It can be seen clearly, from Sandmeyer Lane, as you go toward the front of the building. The inside of Original Village Pizza is classic. The kitchen and wonderful aromas greet you as you enter the restaurant. On your left, is a huge dining space complete with an ability to seat yourself.

The dining area is complete with booths or tables for sitting and eating. The walls have paintings on them, I believe set in Italy, to prepare your appetite. The staff in the restaurant greets you as you enter. Your server comes promptly, greets you and is eager to get you take your order.

The overhead lighting in the restaurant coats every crevice of the dining area. I have never seen a place that is so clean and so busy.

The Meal

Almost as soon as you put your order in your food arrives at your table. The Original Village Sausage Parmigiana comes complete with a small bag of Lay's Original Potato Chips, a pickle and the sandwich.

The sandwich comes on a toasted, it seems, Long Amoroso Roll, seedless. The sausage is cut in medium slices, and some smaller parts, in order to make room for sautéed Bell Peppers and a beautiful layer of cheese, either Provolone or Mozzarella.

The sandwich is not too hefty but it is also not minuscule. The cheese and peppers compliment a sausage that carries a little spice but it is moist, hearty and is not oily.

In The End

When it is lunchtime, at Original Village Pizza, look out. It is busy with walk in visitors and telephone orders. While there might be a lot going on in the kitchen, at your booth or table, you can enjoy a prime lunch that is both quick and well made, at a decent price.

It is a wrap. The Original Village Crispy Chicken Caesar Wrap can please. In this case, this chicken wrap is above the grade. With paper in place, The Crispy Chicken Caesar Wrap, with pickle and potato chips, waits to explode in your mouth and heart.

The wrap, whole wheat, combines light, seasoned crisp chicken slices, fresh lettuce and tomato and a generous dose of Caesar sauce to make a bold sandwich on an already jam packed menu. You would believe this would be messy.

Bite into this sandwich, The Crispy Chicken Caesar Wrap hides the sauce until the end. The hearty portion of the wrap, lettuce, tomato, chicken and some sauce offers your mouth an invite to its initial flavor.

The back pockets of the wrap actually push the sauce into this mixture to make your meal complete. Check it out at Original Village Pizza.

Original Village Pizza, at 10006 Sandmeyer Lane, in Philadelphia, PA 19116‎, is open Monday through Saturday from 11AM-12AM. The restaurant is open from on Sunday from 12PM-11PM.

      Well now if you could just start getting free meals for these ads that would be alright, wouldn't it? I love good Italian food! You sold them well. Up and sharing.

      I'm usually quite leery over pizza not made in New York or New Jersey. My view is that the further you get away from the tristate area the more you should lower your expectations of getting the real thing.

      I am open minded, though. The next time I'm in Philly, I will need to try their food. But, I think you nailed it... you need to get the aroma of the place first. You can usually tell how good the pizza is by the scent of pies, calzones, and parms from meals past.
