Giani’s Napoli Pizzeria | A Review

Conversation that led to the slight disagreement that led to Phil  conceding to go to Giani’s Napoli Pizzeria. Me: (after searching for a frustratingly twenty minutes on my Pinterest board for a place to eat dinner) I know! Let’s go to that Napoli Pizza place in Garosugil! Phil: B-b-but you said we can’t go there until you have done really well on your diet and… Me: Phil. Phil: You told me last time! You said we can’t go until you are doing really well on your diet! Me: Phil, do you really want to be saying this? Phil: Okay. Let’s go there. He meant well, of course. Phil is trying hard to be my cheerleader of eating better. It’s obviously not an easy task. And while I was not doing terrifically on a diet, I had been good for most of the week. 🙂 That was good enough for me! Plus it’s thin crust pizza. How many calories can it possibly hold??

Brew 3.14 | A Review

If I lived on the north side I’d be there once a week. Sadly …

|Review| Brick Oven New York Pizza

Oh, Korea and your weirdo pizzas. You cause all us foreigners to seek out establishments like Brick Oven with a vengeance. I’ve been to this restaurant twice and it is always loaded with foreigners and gyopos.  They even have western staff working there…that’s how much we love it. This review of Brick Oven is one of hundreds online so I’ll be brief. This is good pizza. There is a beautiful brick oven in the kitchen and you can smell the pizza from the street. It calls you in like a siren…and if I was going to fall for any siren, it would be the Siren of Good Pizza. Directions: Click Here! 617-4 Yeoksam-dong Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea +82 2-508-1325
