Famoso Neopolitan Pizzeria- Quattro Formaggi

Quattro Formaggi_Apr 8 2017The meal: ***

I love pizza but I am no way a connoisseur. When our orders were taken, I was informed by the waitress that the Neapolitan pizza is what is classically defined as thin crust. After doing some reading of my own, I also learned that the dough must be formed by hand, 3 mm max, and finally, baked in a stone oven at 485 deg C for 90s. This is just a snippet of the rules! This will explain the Pizzaiolos (pizza chef) and classic stone bell shaped oven.

I ordered the quattro formaggi but was not that impressed. I found that there was too much olive oil. The crust was delicious nonetheless. If you’re a fan of this particular pizza, believe it or not, I would recommend Ristorante’s quattro formaggi.

The place: ***

This was my first time visiting this restaurant. I came to learn that it’s a chain with most restaurants located in the West (Alberta, British Columbia). We visited one of the two locations in Ontario, Bloor St.

I very much enjoyed the ambiance inside the restaurant. It’s well lit, accommodates many guests and has little to no visual distraction (simple layout including decoration). One item that caught my eye was the brick wall/columns separating the windows. It’s unique which adds a little oomph to the décor.

The price: $

Poutini’s – BBQ Pulled Pork Poutine


About the meal: The poutine was great, good crunchy fries, good gravy, and poured just right so that the cheese curds melted with the heat of the gravy, and the fries weren’t soggy. The pulled pork was pretty decent, not the best I’ve ever had but I would definitely order this again! By the way, in the picture above I’d ordered a “teeny weeny tiny” size, as they name it, but it was a pretty decent size; had it for lunch and the itis was real after the meal! Zzz…

About the place: Tiny little place on King W, it’s the perfect spot for a quick lunch. The staff is friendly, the service is fast and the food tastes pretty good. They also have a bench outside, for those who wish to sunbathe and people-watch while they’re eating – King St is a good street to people watch by the way!
