Silverlake gets Philly

When you are from the East Coast and live in L.A., you miss the food as it's not the same in L.A.
Especially the Philadelphia specialties that lots have tried to copy here.
Well, the great news is real Philly Cheesesteaks and Hoagies (Subs for those that don't know) are here.
A new place in Silverlake, Boo's just opened, and I am in heaven.
This is the real deal. They import their bread from Amoroso's Bakery in Philly. Not only that but they have Wise Potato Chips (if you haven't had 'em, you should) and TastyKakes which are rare in L.A.
I ran in the other day to test it, being an aficionado of the Cheesesteak, and was blown away at how good this place is.
If you are anywhere near Silverlake, you should try this place. I know I will go back quite a bit!
Oh, and yes, they are from Philly!!

Boos is located at:
4501 Fountain Ave (Corner of Virgil)
Los Angeles, CA 90029
Neighborhood: Silverlake
