Fong's Pizza 01-11-2015

Oh my. So far away what I have been looking for. SO tasty.

Their schtick is Chinese food made into pizza. For an appetizer we had egg rolls, which were more of spring rolls, but delicious. The sweet chili sauce was amazing.

Then we had the Fongolian Beef pizza.

So much of this blog has been about an anti-fancy pizza attitude. I told myself that I wouldn't post about any sort of fancy pizza, just good old-fashioned basic pizza. This place made me change my mind.

The crust is very thin and very crispy. The toppings were generous and amazing. I love Mongolian Beef anyway, and this was a superb take on it.

Now for the ratings.

Tastiness - Can I give this an 11?
Rightness - Can I give it a negative number?

Tastiness - She agrees with the whole 11 thing
Rightness - Absolute Zero

We will go back, we want to go with a few friends and everyone order a small pizza in a different style so we can try more kinds.

Joe's Pizza & Pasta - 01-08-2015

So, I am going to add to this occasionally.

Lizzie and I went to Joe's Pizza & Pasta last night. It's really, really good New York style pizza.

As usual, we ordered half and half pizza, pepperoni and sausage. The crust was thin and soft, with a bit of crispness to it, so not exactly what I am looking for. I expected that. The sauce leaned towards sweetness, but only because of the caraway that was the most prevalent spice. The sausage was tasty, crumbled into small pieces and spread nicely over the pie. The pepperoni is quite greasy, either you like that or you don't. I liked it a lot. The two sides have distinctly individual tastes to them, the sauce reacts very differently to the two toppings.

The appetizer was this very yummy, fluffy bread, with a bit of butter and parmesan cheese to it.

On our usual two part scale

Rightness - 3 (although for what they set out to accomplish, I'd call it an 8)
Tastiness - 9

Rightness - 2 (she agrees with the New York rightness)
Tastiness -8
