Thursday evening I ventured out the road to Dolores Hidalgo to KM 5.5 for pizza at Pizza Pig.
Actually since I'm on a weight loss plan, my intention was to eat their Caesar salad or some kind of salad.
Traveling with my friends Bill and Trey, it was a whiz to get there. About ten minutes. We typically go at an off time so seldom are there many people there. But I've heard that often, especially on the weekends that it is packed with people from near and far. The waiters have kept tabs of how far people journey for their pizza. They think the farthest are people from San Luis Potosi which is 1 1/2 hours away.
The owner, formerly from NYC definitely knows how to make pizza. The great thing is he uses the best of the best ingredients. All made to order. Bill and Trey ordered the vegetarian and then added Italian sausage, pepperoni and one more meat.
The owner, Tim, was telling us what isn't on their clever menus. Sweet potato fries and chicken wings. I love anything made from sweet potatoes. My order was for a Caesar salad and an order of sweet potato fries. I bake mine at home using olive oil. I think these were fried. To top off the meal, they have dessert pizzas with all kinds of fruits and/or chocolate. WE ordered chocolate with bananas.
Oh well, back to the eating less the next day. One piece of the dessert pizza was pure bliss.
The clever menu is what my friends are looking through for their photo shot. The business card comes with a small piece of elastic and a place to cut out the center of the card so you can stick your nose through for a photo. Very, very clever. We did not test that though because I wanted to save the card.
It's so much fun when restaurants or retail establishments display a sense of play and humor. It doesn't happen that often.
The restaurant is open Tue - Sat from 1-9 and Sunday from 1-8. The phone # is 415 110-2153. Cash only.
Tim hopes in the near future to have delivery pizza from a kitchen in San Miguel.
I think all of his customers wish him well in this endeavor.
Great pizza, fun ambiance and a guy from NYC with a restaurant in San Miguel.
