Man, I'm a sucker for a good novelty restaurant. Down on St. Andrews and Wilshire in Santa Monica it's there. Mr Pizza Factory may be the weirdest thing to hit the American palate in ages.
This place is the kind of place where you can get unbelieveable toppings on your pie. Tonight I went and had the calamari and the Shrimp Nude pizza.
The calamari caused a bit of a surprise by actually being good. The texture was tender and easy and it was served with a Wasabi Aioli sauce which was a hell of a lot of fun..
The pizza was, well, the weirdest thing I've ever eaten. I'm a guy that'll eat every single thing you can put in front of him. This pie was a bit of a challenge. As you ate it, it went from savory to sweet. At the beginning I was hit with the spicy shrimp, blue cheese sauce, and peppers and onions then it went to a nice, pleasantly sweet cream cheese sauce. The crust was dessert and the pizza was dinner.
A strange and interesting idea.
Everyone should go once to check it out. It's a bit pricey for what it is, but if it goes away no one will know what they were all about. So go.
