How was it?
Miss LV, Miss Toronto and I were celebrating the end of Miss LV's uni career (yay!) and what better place than at the swanky Hugos Bar Pizza. We originally planned to go on a Sunday, to take advantage of their $5 pizza deal (yes, that's right $5 pizzas on Sunday), but things changed and we found ourselves at the award winning pizza joint on a cold Saturday evening.
Firstly, a few things I did not enjoy about the experience: we were a party of three that was clearly squished into a very small two person table and it was very chaotic when the food was brought out. We literally had to shuffle everything around. Note: book a table for four next time! Also, it was so dark in there and our only light source was a small candle on our table, however it had to be moved to make room for our food. Was not too happy about that, food-photographing wise! I ended up scaring our food with the flash.
Some cocktails recommended by our lovely waiter to start things off. I found only a handful of the waiters were really attentive whilst the rest possessed that too-cool-for-skool attitude, with that plastic smile plastered on. Ah well, no surprise there.
And out come the pizzas...
Salmon Pizza $26.00
Salmon with mascarpone, caviar, watercress & chives
Baked eggplant, tomato, chilli, smoked mozzarella & basil
Both pizzas were divine. Perfectly thin and crispy bases (just the way I like it). I loved the beautiful and creamy mascarpone on the salmon pizza, the combination was absolutely delicious. I love eggplant so I immediately spotted the Aubergine pizza. The chilli on the pizza was fantastic and it definitely made the pizza a star in it's own right.
Tomato, basil & Italian Buffalo mozzarella salad $10.00
The salad was quite a small portion for $10.00, I thought. But if it had been any bigger we would have had to put it on the floor (there was simply no room on our table!). The Buffalo mozzarella was chunky and smooth, the tomato and basil providing a nice break between the pizzas.
Despite the poor lighting (a foodbloggers worst nightmare!), the snooty waitresses and the teeny tiny table, the food at Hugos Bar Pizza certainly delivers. The cocktails were pretty lethal too! I would definitely go back for the pizzas (maybe on the cheap $5 Sunday. lol), but I'll remember to book for a bigger table next time!
