You go there for the pizza, mostly late at night after enjoying many frosty beverages. It is also a great spot to try out a donair, if your stomach is solid and you are going home alone. Wikitravel claims that the area can descend into anarchy when the bars let out, and the restaurants often lock their bathrooms, even to customers!! But it wasn’t the case this Thursday Night, when Rick and I went there after “French Kiss” the party organised by the Quebec section of the NDP the night before the Convention kick-off.
When you get to Pizza Corner, you can choose between the King of Donairs, the European Food Shop or our pick, Sicilian Pizza, Donairs & Subs.
Why did we choose Sicilian? Well, because it is The Home of the Big Slice ®, that’s why!!
I decided I had to counterbalance Rick’s pick, and I went for the Meatzza. Finally, something that sounds better than Meat Lover. MEATZZA baby!!
Pepperoni, Italian sausage, bacon, salami, ground beef and mozzarella.
I almost got a fresh Big Slice ®, but instead got the last one of the previous pie. I didn’t complain, figuring there was plenty of traffic here that it couldn’t be very old.
The pizza wasn’t too bad. Not the best I’ve ever had, but quite decent for the time of day. The sausage were spicy, the ground beef and the bacon were unfortunetaly small pre-cooked bits – but at least they weren’t too salty, the pepperoni was decent. The salami was basically non-present.
The cheese was not too greasy and nicely melted, with the nice rubber-texture that you look for at 2 in the morning.
I have to admit I was envious of Rick’s tomatoes. Perhaps the outlet will come up with a Vegemeatzza soon, in order to offer some healthy and balance options.
We enjoyed our slices sitting by the open window, people watching, making fun of overly drunk students, and heckling New Democrats as they walked by. Good times.
