Cann ’t seem to stay out of Roslindale these daze
but while in the “popular with foodies” neighborhood,
I’m always sure to take a stroll around Roslindale Square, making sure the tight knit and talented community of amazing restaurants,
are still restaurants, and not the agenda 2030 style,
giant boxes full of tiny “luxury” apartments that are seemingly being dropped in daily.
And since I had to meet up with my good friend [Robert the Great] anyway, it just made sense to keep it real with a Sensi-meal.
I got some things together while I waited for him to roll up.
namely some Purple Chemdawg, a great hybrid strain (Chemdawg and Purple Haze). I am using a Hemp Paper from ZigZag schmeared with that ol' sugarwax, to make a torch to light our path.
... so anyway, I rolled something up while I was waiting for him get some things together
Letting my sugarwax covered fingers do the walking, I decided to call ahead to Sofia's Grotto.
Sofia's has been a huge hit since it came to Roslindale Village, several years ago
The last time I was in, I remembered that I had their mushroom pizza. A white sauce pizza with a few different 'shrooms and truffle sauce. I also remembered that it was delicious, so doing it again. I have been on a 'shroom kick as of late.
As it turns out, Robert the Great was in the market for some replacement glassware, so I went with him to check out, the always entertaining Sam’s Food Store.
So Sam sells “food”
Like from this hookah salad bar
or these lil "snackies"
and he also sells bongs, pipes, hookahs, and everything else you would find in a smoke shop..
So we got what we needed from Sammy's and moved on to the nearby Sofia's Grotto
to pick up the 'shroom pie
But not before taking some rips to test out the new glass ware
Sofia's is a such a cool little spot. Off the beaten path enough, despite being in the center of Roslindale Square, which is home to some great food. Sophia's definitely adds to that reputation, bringing much to the table.
While absolutely cozy in the winter, The grotto really has its time in the sun in the warm weather months.
The Grotto is one of the area's few al fresco restaurants,
but even if you're eating indoors on a cold winter night Sofia's hits it out of the park.
