Day 25, 2004: East Village Pizza & Kababs (E. Village, NYC)

DAY 25: October 25th
LOCATION: East Village Pizza & Kebabs (145 First Ave, NYC)
GUEST(S): Zohar Adner, Todd Simmons
ORDER: 1 slice of Lasgna Pizza, 1 slice of Cheese

PIZZA REPORT: Good-on-ya, Lasagna! Who knew that lasagna on pizza would be so good? The answer is East Village Pizza & Kebabs. Despite lasgna and pizza being two distinct Italian entrees, the combination of the two is very near the sum of the parts. I will say that the slice was more pizza than lasagna though - afterall, the slice had no 'lasagna' noodles on it. But, the ricotta cheese, tomato sauce patches, basil, pepper, and perhaps some other spices really enhanced the typical conventional oven slice. The cheese slice was a quality specimen as well. All the cheese and sauce was well distributed out to the edges of the crispy crust. It was shiny but well worth the oil intake.
  • I was regrettably late for lunch but my guests, Zohar Adner and Todd Simmons, took advantage of my tardiness by getting to know each other. Turns out they're neighbors and both know people that were victimized by theifs.
  • If you haven't been dating for too long, don't give your significant other a trip to sets the bar too high for future gifts.
