We had some awesome pasta and pizza at this wonderful takeout/restaurant called Franco’s Metro. All the food is made to order, especially the personal brick oven pizzas. We liked Franco’s Metro so much that we had it two weekends in a row. The 1st weekend we ordered the Margherita Pizza with the Spaghetti with Matrigiana sauce. The Matrigiana sauce was a basic tomato based sauce infused with onions. The 2nd weekend we ordered the Spinach Ricotta Pizza with the Pesto Linguine.

The pizza was incredibly good the crust bordering on crispy and chewy. The pasta was also good with the pesto being a little better than the tomato based sauce in my opinion. The meatballs were bready and very soft. This place is highly recommended.

John and I decided to have a cheese pizza pie delivered to his house in Palisades Park, New York. After I consumed a full slice, I asked John, “Is this the best Jersey has got to offer in terms of pizza?” His reply was, “Everyone says their pizza is great.”
.
Well, I highly disagree! The crust was so hard and dry, it was unbearable to eat. I’m not much of a crust person but I would like to eat the whole darn thing if I’m hungry. I do not recommend unless you are in the area and desperate for anything that’s opened late at night.

Well, at that point, I was glad I lived in New York City because that’s where you should go for an awesome slice of pizza. ūüôā

As you can recall from John’s entry on the pizza bun he bought from Paris Baguette Bakery, it seems worthy enough to purchase: there is enough sauce, cheese, and even has a garnish.

These pizza buns are also available in Chinese bakeries and now I am starting to think about how they skimp on almost everything! You can barely taste the sauce and didn’t even seem like a pizza to me. It’s cheaper than Korean bakeries but I guess you get what you pay for!

Brought some Paris Baguette Bakery goods back home to eat. I bought the savory items instead of the sweet items because in my opinion they taste much better. I bought the pizza on a sweet roll and the bun with various vegetables and meat inside.

The pizza was good with an interesting soft sweet bread crust; usually used for sweet desserts. It had a interesting taste which was very welcoming.

The bun with vegetables and meat is an all time favorite of mine. No matter where I get this, I am very satisfied. It is almost like a dumpling but with a very bready outercrust. Try it someday, if you have not already!

My brother, who is only 8 years old, thinks he can cook. It all started when he and my parents went to Ikea and bought this cookbook geared towards making great meals for kids.

One day, he sneaked into the kitchen and I found him cutting apple slices/bread and microwaving Ferrer Rocher chocolate candies. I immediately grabbed the knife away from him and helped him cut the apples. Going with the flow, I followed his directions. He substituted a couple things from the original recipe.

And voila! This is his first creation…not too shabby…it’s just bread, fruit, and chocolate candy mixed together.

Then the next day, my parents were gone for the day and I was alone with my brother in the house. All of a sudden, I heard a racket in the kitchen. My brother was there once again! This time, he already peeled a potato by himself and started mashing it (after microwaving it). He added some butter and it tasted fine…at least it wasn’t raw.

Hours later, he was in the kitchen again. He had already made perfect tomato slices and put them on top of four slices of hamburger buns with ketchup and¬†mozzarella¬†cheese. My mother went into the kitchen and added diced spam and green bell peppers. This was the best yet! (By the way, he loves fake tattoos as you can see in the picture below). I loved how he chirped, “This is for dinner!”

Thank you brother for making my day with your unexpected surprises! (He was thrilled when I told him I was going to put his creations on my blog).

Amazing. Although I throw that word around a lot on this blog, I wholeheartedly had wonderful time here. The food was great and the beers, exceptional.

Iron Hill Brewery is a brewery first and a restaurant second. All the beers are brewed in house and you could tell from drinking the beers. When asked for our drinks, I immediately ordered the 8 beer sampler which included all the house beers and 2 seasonal beers. The house beers were the Iron Hill Light Lager, Vienna Red Lager, Ironbound Ale, Abbey Dubbel, Pig Iron Porter, and the Raspberry Wheat. The seasonal beers I selected were Hefeweizen and the India Black Ale. The colors, aromas, and taste of the beer were all exceptional and had a great time drinking and trying all the different kinds.

Although they have a huge selection of food, we came a bit late so the menu changed after 10 PM. We had to select from the late night menu which consisted of upscale bar food, which we were okay with. Our appetizer was the buttermilk fried calamari which was very crispy and worked very well with lime zest dipping sauce.

Cindy had the Mediterranean Wrap which consisted of cucumbers, hummus, roasted red peppers, tomato, arugula, feta, and balsamic syrup in a spinach wrap. Very tasty and the cool cucumbers pops in your mouth for a very nice contrast to the other textures.

Finally, the Exotic Mushroom Pizza was hearth baked with truffle oil, sun-dried tomatoes, asiago, and mozzarella cheese. Very cheesy and earthy from the truffles on the pizza. Was hesitant in ordering a vegetarian pizza but was completely satisfied with my decision after the first bite.

If not for the food, please go for the beers!

This is my second time eating here. The first time I ate here, I was very content with the taste of the pizza and quality of the crust. The second time also did not disappoint. I had the ricotta spinach white pizza and my girl had the chicken tomato ricotta pizza. Both were amazing. The crust was expected from a pizza joint in Brooklyn.

The zeppole’s we had were also very good…but how can you mess up on confection sugar dumped on fried dough? You can’t.

Highly recommended!

Ordered a pie to share with co-workers at work. I had to get ground beef because one of my co-workers did not eat pork products. I ordered up this concoction to make sure everyone was happy with the toppings. The pizza came out great. Linwood Pizza makes some great pizza!

One of my good friends and I decided to grab lunch at Il Colosseo, an Italian restaurant located in Bensonhurst and is known for their oven brick pizza. Their menu had a variety of toppings to choose from: eggplant, ham, mushrooms, artichokes, etc. The personal pizzas were a bit too big for us…I think we could have shared a pie. Because we planned on going to a museum afterwards, we ended up stuffing ourselves so that we wouldn’t have to carry our takeout boxes. The price for each pie costs around $10.

I ordered the ham/tomato sauce pie while my friend decided to get the artichoke/mushroom with tomato sauce pie. Fresh out of the oven, the thin crunchy crust and hot juicy toppings came out to absolute perfection. I would have to say that this pizza is as authentic as NYC can get!
