A25 Pizzeria – Little Lonsdale [Lunch Crawl]

IMG_3052

Today’s lunch crawl episode, brought to you by … Pizza.

I may have mentioned once or twice that I am so lucky that my employment is at the heart of the CBD.

The restaurant biz is highly competitive and cut-throat especially in the city. One moment you’re the ‘it’ kidΒ  riding the wave of the hot new trend *cough* tear drop cake *cough* and fade into obscurity the next. The positive is that if you’re a consumer, your choices are endless! Only the most delicious survive.

My heart tells me it wants pizza today. I happily oblige and we make our way to A25 Pizzeria.

400 Gradi – Essendon

IMG_2884

Some days you feel like being ultra productive, do your laundry, clean your house, meal prep and conquer astro phsyics whilst blogging. And then there are days where you wake up and decide that you’re going to have two dinners.

400 Gradi has enjoyed success receiving ‘The Best Magherita in the World’ a coveted prize that has curious locals (like me) and the rest of the world noticing. I like pizza and I eat a decent amount of it that borders between obsession and straight psychotic. Which begs the question, what a will the world’s best slice do to me?

As the great Reggie Fils-amie once said, ‘My body is ready’. Also, if that last sentence sounded as though Reggie is dead – he’s not. I assure you, his very much alive. Wikipedia confirms this. To the food!

+39 Pizzeria – CBD – Little Bourke [Lunch Crawl]

IMG_2618

Pizza is a dime a dozen within the Melbourne CBD, you can’t walk one block without passing by a few margheritas or two. You can grab a greasy slice of unloved bread with questionable cheese or you can go to +39 to satisfy that constant weekly urge to have a whole pizza to yourself. Admittedly, this was my first time here and the excitement was coursing through my veins ready for that hot Italian injection. (cough)

That Arancini Guy – South Melbourne Market [Truck Crawl]

img_2335

Famous for their oversized dimmies and $1 oysters, the South Melbourne Market has transformed into a food lovers paradise with Food Trucks, vendors from far and wide filled with good vibes. I’m not a fan of the huge lines at the Queen Victoria Night Market so the South Melbourne version was a more relaxing experience (No lines means more food, faster!). We didn’t really have a strategy and mostly winged it and chose what sounded most interesting.

Note: I had to divide up these reviews from one post into individual posts because Zomato doesn’t like lazy bloggers (boo!).

Fox In The Corn – Footscray

img_2410

Okay, so the last few posts have been mostly about pizza and pasta. I don’t have a problem, you have a problem if you’re getting sick of Italian food. Sorry, ever since my visit to DOC something within me clicked and I can’t help but find every piece of bread with cheese and tomato sauce within a 20KM radius and devour everything on sight. Which led me to Fox In The Corn, nestled in Footscray not too far from 8Bit. I’m always for more culinary diversity, especially in my neck of the woods. Footscrazy, here we go!

Mozzarella Bar – Seddon

Is there such a thing as eating too much pizza? This is my third post that involves the beloved baked bread yet, I feel that I can smash at least another 20 pies. Not in succession of course, because that would be irresponsible (I would’ve love to in my youth, though).

You see, the problem with pizza is that you can never truly ‘get sick’ of it. People who claim they get full after one or two slices are the type of people that sends my brain into rage-inducing implosion. I don’t think I can trust people who are healthy, responsible and think rationally like that. Those are the same type of people who dab the oil from their Margherita’s. I know, there’s a special place in hell for people like them and their oil-less Margs. Pizza is irrational and has the power to transform sensible adults intoΒ  gluttons that awake from their food comas feeling absolutely disgusted with themselves.

Man, I love pizza.
