A little more than a year ago, the second Night Market was held in a parking lot in University City. No different than the other editions of Night Market, there were long lines at several trucks and carts. Few lines were longer than the one at Nomad Pizza, which was making its Philly debut through its pizza truck.
There was certainly great anticipation for Nomad, which originated and built its reputation in Hopewell, New Jersey. The truck, a restored 1949 REO Speedwagon with a built-in wood-fired brick oven, kept firing up Neapolitan-style pizzas for the masses, who eagerly gobbled them up. Earlier this year, Nomad opened up its brick and mortar location at 6th and Bainbridge, though its pizza truck still makes appearances at events around town. In either the restaurant or the store, prepare to be blown away by superb pizza.
