If you live in Philly and you like food, the opening of Goldie on April Fool’s Day seemed too good to be true. It’s not a joke though, Goldie is open just above Rooster Soup Co., another Cook & Solo joint.
Goldie works a little differently than another Nachojawn favorite, Mama’s Vegetarian. Here you pick your sauce, and the whole insides of the sandwich get tossed in a bowl before being stuffed in a Dizengoff pita.
The line was out the door on opening week. I got the next to last pita. Those behind me got salads. If you weren’t in the door at this point, you got nothing.
Super crispy fries might be a little divisive, but I liked the shwarma spiced version, with a sour cherry iced tea.
I ate it all – it’s a little bit bigger sandwich than Mama’s as well.
