FoodWire: Serious Eats Visits Thai Pizza Co.


Well-respected national food blog Serious Eats today pays a visit to Thai Pizza Co. (608 Eastgate Avenue; website). In the article for Serious Eats' pizza blog Slice, Chicago-based Serious Eats contributor Daniel Zemans stops by the Delmar Loop restaurant to test the "universality of pizza."

Zemans doesn't think that Thai Pizza Co. is up to snuff:
There really isn't much worth reporting on the actual pizza. There are twelve different options for toppings and two different crusts, one thin and one thick. I opted for a thin crust with green curry, which included chicken, mushrooms, onions, green peas, fresh basil, coconut milk and bell pepper. The virtually flavorless factory made crust was neither remotely crisp nor pleasantly chewy. The cheese, listed on the menu as mozzarella but actually a combination of mozzarella and cheddar, was the best part of the pizza.
