Pizza is another thing our pathetically old selves rarely indulge in anymore. Because while #carbsarelife when you've got youth on your side of the metabolic scale, #nocarbs are what you do when you're on the wrong side of 30.
But I indulge occasionally (because #yolo), and since my galfriend Bambi wanted pizza, to pizza we went! And on this note, have u ever noticed that it is the skinniest girls who seem to eat the most, carbs or otherwise?? It's ridiculous...how my skinniest friends stuff their faces, abhor exercise, but never seem to put on weight. I look at a piece of bread and I gain an inch on my ass.
Oh well, such is life.
So, we wanted to try Blue Label Pizza but that was all booked out, and so we hit up ALT Pizza, which seemed to draw a good crowd when I dined at Ramen Nagi a few days back. Warning bells were set off when I walked in: there was a crowd, but it was predominantly made up of NS boys, college-students, and tourists. And as suspected, the food turned out pedestrian at best. Just be sure to stick to the pizzas, which were semi-decent, and nothing else - the sides we ordered were abysmal. We really should walked down to the basement to Peperoni's instead.
The Fowl Play ($18) was a base of hickory BBQ sauce, topped with chicken breast, roasted onions, red peppers, and finished with mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan. Save for the somewhat dry chicken, the pizza passed muster (barely).
The Design-It-Yourself Pizza ($28) had a tomato sauce base, proteins of chorizo and bacon, veggies of mushrooms, roasted peppers, olives and topped with melty mozzarella, was much more well-received, because, you know, we customized the hell out of it. It erred a little to the salty, especially with the cured meats and olives, but it was part of its yummy draw.
I wasn't expecting much from the Truffle Mac and Cheese ($13), but this was the saddest little serving of mac & cheese ever. The mushroom sauce was cloyingly milky, yet so sparing in portion the macaroni at the top was all dried out. We took a bite and although I spit mine mouthful out, Bambi kept hers down, all the while grimacing. (#nsfw: evidently, I spit, whereas she swallows) Bambi pointed out, rightfully, those microwavable Kraft Mac & Cheese Dinners would have tasted infinitely better.
Give the ALT Wings ($6 for 4pcs) tossed in a hot sauce, and served with gorgonzola dip, a hard pass too. The wings were so amaciated I actually thought they might have been quail's legs. And save for the hot sauce, everything else was a miss.
