It’s all about tasty gourmet pizza and other dishes at this newly opened spot in the Strathcona neighbourhood. As you walk in the narrow entranceway there are a few seats but it is mostly designed for takeaway. Head Chef Taz has created many unique pizzas mixing in various cultures where you may see a Vietnamese pie or one devoted to Argentina or India. The crust is chewy and airy, and their sauces that are all home-made is the signature to most of the their pizza pies.
I have tried a selection of their pizzas and slices, I loved both the Argentine Carne that is topped with roast beef, and orange slices; as well as the Peri Peri Chicken which has a bit of heat from the hot sauce drizzle and is so good.
The Vietnamese Chili Chicken not only celebrates the Vietnamese culture, the flavours shine on this pizza. The Paneer Tikka Masala is one for the vegetarians that gives a nod to India.
I have also tried the Pesto Chicken Club, along with the Potato and Mushroom pizzas.
They also offer Savoury and sweet Scrolls, if you have lived or traveled to Australia you will know what scrolls are; I have had the dessert offering here which was the Lotus Biscoff Scroll and its delicious.
They offer 6 different pizza selections as slices available throughout the day, or you can get whole pizzas from the list of over 30 different pizzas on the menu. They also have pastas, salads and more to round out the offerings.
This is a wonderful spot to get some tasty slices to go or whole pies to take away from morning to late night and remember to add one or more of their delicious scrolls.
