We were actually planning to have Steve and Yael over for dinner last night. I had planned an Asian style meal of Curried Carrot Soup, Beef Skewers on a bed of Fried Rice, Garlic Baby Bok Choy. I was in the middle of cooking when Lon and I started to smell a toxic odor. It turns out that the neighboring apt was staining the floors. We tried opening all of our windows and thought maybe the smell would go away. An hour later, I was developing a headache and Lon was nauseated. I was basically done with dinner at that point but I had to pack it all up so we could take Ice (our Jack Russell) and escape.

So last minute, our plan had changed, we were in a cab and on our way to Kasi’s (Lon’s sister) apt and we had to figure out what to do with out dinner guests. Kasi generously offered to have Steve and Yael over and so we ordered in from Italian Village Pizzeria Italian Village Pizzeria(Kasi and Stephen’s regular Italian place).

Kasi and Stephen love Italian Village and Yael was really happy with her Penne Bolognese. I’m the food perfectionist so I’ll have to pick at a few things but generally, I’d have no problem ordering from there again. I ordered a plain pizza and while the sauce is very tasty, they put a bit too much on, and a lot of cheese, so large clumps of cheese and sauce slide right off the pizza. I prefer my pizza to stay in tact while I eat it. The excess sauce also tends to make the crust more soggy than crispy on the bottom. Lon ordered a Spaghetti with Meat Sauce with added Meatballs. The meat and sauce was good for pizzeria food but the spaghetti tasted over-cooked. To be fair, the food did sit a while before we ate so it could have gotten soggy then but I reheated my pizza in the toaster over (as I always do with delivered pizza cause I like it really hot) and that didn’t help the sogginess of the pizza.

The prices are good and the delivery was pretty fast. It’s a good safety delivery menu to have around.
