It’s news to exactly no one in Philadelphia that our city makes some great pizza. But it’s nice that Vice’s The Pizza Show decided to spread the word with a Philly-centric episode that dropped yesterday.

Eat This Now: Amis’s Bucatini With Jalapeño and Almond Pesto

Bucatini with jalapeño and almond pesto – Amis/Official

Writing about a pasta dish can feel a little silly. It’s pasta. Pasta is pasta is pasta is pasta. It’s dough that gets formed into fun shapes, so as to distract ourselves from crippling existential dread. Like edible Play-Doh for grown ups.

And sure, there’s good pasta (homemade, delicate, tossed with good ingredients) and bad pasta (overcooked and sloppy), but when was the last time you had a bad plate of pasta in Philly? This city has some of the best Italian chefs in the country — it’s borderline impossible to go wrong. Hell, even our non-Italian restaurants do incredible pasta-work (ever have the ravioli at Le Chéri? Kensington Quarters’s smoked guinea hen fusilli?). Making good pasta in Philly isn’t really that impressive anymore. It’s requisite.

Call us spoiled.

So, how did Amis’s bucatini with jalapeño and almond pesto drive me to this? I’m waxing poetic about a pasta dish (in a city of a million great pasta dishes) made with three exceptionally ordinary ingredients — four if you include parmesan — even though I believe glorifying pasta, a dish traditionally enjoyed by both princes and peasants, is pointless.
