I think I may have found my closest pizza replacement in Montreal. I can't believe I'm saying this - it was at Nickel's in St. Laurent. I know this chain is just sub-par food but, my husband loves it there so, I go because I love him.
I've been making my way around the menu and the last time I went, it was pizza that caught my eye. When it was brought to the table....I was pleasantly surprised.
My husband and I both looked at eachother and mouthed the words "wow". We never say it outloud for it might jinx the dish and turn it bad. Well, I have to say it smelled right, it looked right and so it must taste right...right?
Almost, this was not the pizza of my dreams but, out of all the pizzas I've tried so far in Montreal, this one was the best. I couldn't believe it when I tried it! It was gooooooood- alright maybe just gooood.
I don't care if the sauce is canned and cheese is soy based, it is a closer to what I'm looking for in a pizza. The cheese was perfectly speckled brown and it was NOT oily. It wasn't the perfect pizza but, it certainly filled my pizza craving and it tasted pretty close.
Anyways, how many of you have gotten some pretty tasty or surprising nice dishes here in Montreal but in unlikely places?
