Listening and eating in Little Italy

Listening and eating in Little Italy

I was captivated by listening to the Italians speak as well as eyeing all the food in Pan Bon on Kettner Blvd, Little Italy.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner are freshly made by the Italians from Verona (Romeo and Juliet’s town) with open kitchens to watch the scrumptious activities. It’s a pop in and buy on...
