Polka King has been playing late night Wednesday night hockey at Brit for over 15 years. The fact that it starts at 11:30pm was never that attractive to me. If you think about it, there is no time for sleep until you need to go to work the next day! I have played it a few times over the years and it is indeed fun, if you feel like being unproductive the next morning. However, I am also not one to turn down a chance at some exercise. Besides, all this eating needs to be tempered with calorie burning. Therefore, I dragged my lazy behind to play some really late night hockey tonight.
Let me just say this, after the hockey was over, I now know how Carey Price felt in the lost to Vancouver 7-1. There were 8 breakaways, 4 2 on 1's and a 3 on none! I'm lucky I didn't pull a groin. Whatever the case, I didn't really care because there was some eats I was looking forward to. Eats? At 1:30am in the morning on a Thursday??? Yup, Pizza Garden happens to be nearby to Brit and that's where I headed after hockey. It's open until 2:00am. I dragged Polka King with me since I drove him. Viv has told me about Pizza Garden before since she works nearby. Furthermore, Kevin blogged about it and I wanted to compare it with Uncle Fatih's (which is also nearby and open until 2:00am as well).
2 slices and a canned pop can be had for $5.00 including tax. I got one slice of Pepperoni and one slice of Sausage and Onion with Garlic Sauce. I drizzled more sauce on it for good measure. Polka King got a slice of Hawaiian and a slice of Pesto. He ate the pesto before he realized that I didn't take a picture of it yet. He was so apologetic, almost scared, that I'd do something to him. I wonder if I really do scare my friends when I warn them not to eat before I take a picture? Anyways, the pizza crust itself was not oily and I liked the addition of sesame seeds. However, it was a bit oily on the top. The pizza was pretty decent; but I definitely prefer Uncle Fatih's more. The crust there is crispier and lighter, and it's cheaper ($4.00). Mind you, at 1:30am, if you're spending only $5.00 on 2 slices of pizza and choice of canned pop, there is really not much to complain about.
- It's cheap
- Open late
- Pizza ain't bad
- A bit greasy on the top
- Crust is a bit dry
