Gray's Papaya / Freddie & Pepper's Pizza Pub
I met Elizabeth at work and we took the subway there. I didn't feel like lugging around my DSLR camera, so I decided to take a point-and-shoot. But a funny thing happened. My most recent point-and-shoot (from 2010) is broken. And my second-most recent one (2006), I cannot find. (We still have several boxes in the closest that we haven't unpacked because we have yet to buy an entertainment center.) So I had to take an ancient - relatively speaking - point-and-shoot. I think it's from 2005. The lousy photo quality is obvious.
The dogs themselves were just fine. Not anything special, but miles ahead of Nathan's Famous, and considerably cheaper.
(By the way, there is a hot dog place at which I ate in July, but I did not write it up because I planned to go back and get another dog... but I never did. It's one of the best hot dog joints to which I have ever been. I have to accompany Elizabeth to Manhattan for something on Saturday, so I'm going to try to get another one of them and write the place up next week.)
Elizabeth tried a bite with mustard and said it was really good, so I slathered one of my dogs with mustard, too. And she was right, it was very tasty.
I would be glad to return and eat at Gray's Papaya any time, but if I don't ever make it back, that's okay, too.
"What's that?" I asked the man.
"Chicken mole," he replied.
"Oh, hell yeah I'll try that," I said.
I've never seen or even heard of a chicken mole pizza.
There's a reason why: it was terrible. The sauce was the burnt, chocolate-dominated mole kind that I loathe, where no flavor of peppers is noticeable. The beans added nothing to the slice. For the second time in my life I refused to eat a slice of pizza.
The meat lovers was pretty damn good, though. Elizabeth took two bites and agreed with me.
I would also return to Freddie & Pepper's, however next time I will ask them to leave the slices in the oven for an extra minute. They only reheated them for perhaps 30 seconds, and it just wasn't enough.
I hope you enjoyed this, even though the pictures sucked.
If you would like, I'll make it up to you tomorrow with a new Trader Joe's post...
