Food Review - Pizza Metro Pizza, Bandra (W)
We went their post work for an early dinner and a bunch of teenage guys were already hogging on their meter long pizza. Since the visit was for review we decided to try more than just pizzas (we regretted that later). We started with Carpaccio di manzo - beef carpaccio with rocket & Parmesan shaves and Palle di ruso - crispy fried rice balls stuffed with melting mozzarella salami and basil. We liked the carpaccio which had very fine slivers of beef but it couldn't match up to the one we had at Salt Water Cafe in terms of dressing. The palle di ruso was crispy from outside but the rice was very sticky when we cut through it. The pork salami got lost in the sticky rice and melted cheese making the dish a little bland.
Pizza Metro Pizza is expensive but is a good respite from the regular pizza chains. It also has to face a lot of competition from the already established Ray's Pizzeria in Bandra which is excellent and also not so expensive. However, if you like food challenges the meter long pizza at Pizza Metro Pizza is tailor made for you.
