Before the invention of stacking, mankind was forced to arrange its sandwiches into precariously cantilevered dodecahedral horrors that were nearly impossible to eat, let alone use as shelter. Today's Groupon helps the innovative practice reach its full potential. For $7, you get $15 worth of casual-haute sandwiches, salads, sushi, and more at Noshery Gourmet Café, located a person's throw from Temple University. This deal is good for dine-in only.
Like the effluent from a chipotle-mayonnaise volcano, Noshery's menu overflows with wave after toothsome wave of incineratingly flavorful delectables. Sprint your taste buds to the rye saddle of the Racy Horse plumped with roast beef, horseradish sauce, horseradish cheddar, tomato, and cucumbers ($4.99–$5.99). Recovering veggieholics best not approach the Lugano's grilled portobello mushrooms, grated Romano cheese, spinach, tomato, red onion, and roasted peppers drenched in olive oil and vinegar ($5.49–$6.49). If you're looking to hold your body down during one of Philly's frequent gravity outages, the Super Club Hoagie (maple honey ham, roast turkey, bacon, mayo, deli mustard, tomato, red onion, and Vermont cheddar on a hoagie roll grilled inside out, $7.49) offers a heartier lunch. And fans of two-dimensional caricatures and all nine dimensions of flavor will be singing like schoolgirls after a Soprano panini with honey maple turkey breast, pepperoni, roasted garlic spread, roasted pepper, basil, fresh mozzarella, and provolone ($6.49).
Beyond the borders of bread, Noshery's board of fare runs the gamut from neat-freak-friendly maki sushi rolls such as the perfectly manicured Cuvocado with cucumber, avocado, and sesame seeds ($2.69) to the delicious chaos of a salad like the Central Park with mozzarella, romaine, spinach, tomato, roasted pepper, and vinaigrette ($5.99, add prosciutto for $1). The Noshery's breadbox features only the chewiest teeth pillows from Metropolitan Bakery, excluding the famous Benjamin Franklin–shaped hoagie roll, which both tastes and talks exactly like the Founding Father. Since it looks strange to engage in a heated argument with yourself about the purely subjective "value" of baseball cards, buy extra Groupons for likeminded lunchmates.
