However those plans went out the window when I regressed to my late teens the Friday night before and drank myself into oblivion on cocktails at Laneway Lounge. Needless to say, I was feeling rather sick and sorry for myself the next day! And while Jez could have easily handled the cooking for both of us, we decided why not take a well deserved break after a busy week and get take away instead – something we hardly ever do. After a bit of brainstorming, Neighborhood Pizza was our venue of choice.
We dialled ahead to place our orders after perusing their menu online, then jumped into the car to pick up our food. Being a little piggy, we decided to go for three pizzas so we’d have our lunch (it ended up being breakfast) covered for the next day. Leftover pizza can really hit the spot sometimes!
Our pizza flavours chosen were:
- Buffalo mozzarella, basil and red base ($17.00) with prosciutto added ($4.00)
- Kale, spicy salami, bocconcini, pecorino, a drizzle of chilli oil and bianca base ($23.00)
- Fennel sausage, roasted tomato, parmesan, fresh rocket, pine nuts and red base ($23.00)
The pizzas were on the pricey side, but I was confident the flavours would justify the cost and the entire drive home was a bit of a torture session as my senses inhaled the tempting meal waiting to be eaten.
I would definitely like to dine in at Neighborhood sometime though – the space is really funky; a sparse kind of warehouse that’s somewhat cozy but stark at the same time. The staff were friendly, welcoming us and non-stop smiling. But given my shaky state of being, take away was definitely the right choice on that evening!
All up I thought Neighborhood Pizza was a tasty experience and I do look forward to going back (though not with a friend that needs gluten free bases). I hear their pumpkin, feta and chilli pizza and the sweet potato with maple syrup pizza are the real standouts on their menu – and I do love my carbs on carbs!
It definitely helped nurse my hangover away and bring me back to the land of living. And for breakfast the next day (in my PJs naturally), it was a very welcome sight.
