I’m not here to talk to you about the merits of New York thin style versus Chicago deep-dish style pizza. That’s a subjective controversy of a different nature.
The pizza I am here to discuss is not subjective and it is not bought “by-the-pie.” Yeah, I know a lot of places in the world only sell whole pizzas, but these aren’t really designed for people eating alone or on a budget (not that I can’t eat a whole pizza, mind you).
Tacos are a super food. When you become aware of their over-dominating presence, you feel as if the warmth of the sun just touched your naked skin for the first time.

I spent a year in a small dorm with a bunk bed and a window the size of a movie poster. I lived in apartments on campus and off. I studied abroad in Italy. I even lived at home during a semester while I worked a co-op job for experiential education credit. With every one of these transitions came a multitude of modifications to my daily routine—forcing me to constantly make accommodations my lifestyle.
It may not be Nomtober anymore, but we wanted to remind you that Nom by SALT still lets you dine on a dime. We asked blog contributor Michael J Cirino to sample our new meal-on-a-budget app so you could see what a “food professional” (his quotes, not ours) thinks of it.
It is once again time to get together, celebrate the things we’re thankful for, and create large social gatherings around a multitude of time-honored dishes.
