For years we’ve been patronizing Mimico’s own Turkish owned and operated Il Paedre Yummy Pizza. The 'za is fairly tasty, and although the owners struggle with English, they are very friendly, and know many of their customers personally. Ever since the boys were small, Ma Yummy has been giving us a fresh carrot or pepper to feed them alongside the healthy pizza (they offer whole wheat crust, and we insist on it every time).
The advantages of Yummy’s include proximity to our home, friendly service, and tasty, relatively healthy pizza.
Unfortunately, they are so popular, delivery can take over an hour at times! And due to the ESL factor, ordering can sometimes be a crap shoot: Although the pizza is generally tasty, it isn’t always what you ordered, lol!
Recently, we discovered a new local pizza joint, FBI Pizza. We decided to check it out, ordering a gorgonzola salad, one pizza with bocconcini, cherry tomatoes, basil, garlic, and another with thin crust, gorgonzola, roasted zucchini, caramelized onions, Roasted Red Peppers. We also ordered a few drinks, and tried out their home made asagio dip.
Our order arrived in timely fashion, however, there were some definite drawbacks...
Although FBI delivers SUPER delicious pizza with gourmet toppings, and it generally arrives within reasonable time, one major downside was the price: At almost twice what we typically pay for Yummy’s, FBI is definitely a “sometimes” treat! Furthermore, because they seem to employ so few people, careless mistakes are made: The driver had to go and come back with the drinks and dip which the good people at the pizza shop had forgotten to give him. And the alleged Gorgonzola salad didn’t have any gorgonzola on it!
Overall, I think Yummy’s has the market cornered here in Mimico. FBI has potential, for sure, but with prices like theirs, the order better be spot on every time!
