Lunchtime Eats

As much as I would like to be good and bring lunch to work everyday, let’s be honest, I’m not that good.  I thankfully work in an area of the city surrounded by tons of restaurants and bars.  There is never a shortage of places to pick up a meal.

Fridays are typically group lunch days at work.  A few of us will go all in on some sushi or burritos.  The last couple of weeks it’s been pizza from Pizza Rustica.

I’ve had the pleasure of testing 2 different pizzas – The Rustica and the Steak and Gorgonzola.  The Rustica, this restaurant’s signature pizza, was topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, sweet roasted peppers, mushrooms, goat cheese, topped with fresh-cut prosciutto.

The steak and gorgonzola was topped with roasted garlic cream sauce, mozzarella, gorgonzola cheese, seasoned AAA beef tenderloin, broccoli, caramelized onions & mushrooms and turned out to be my new favourite pizza.  IMG_6455

Loved the massive amount of toppings.  No scrimping at this place.  The crust is thin, a little bit crispy. These pizzas are full of flavour.

A second place I decided to try was the Corned Beef House.  I have had a crazy hankering for a roast beef sandwich.  My craving my satisfied fully visiting this restaurant.

First off, let me say that the sandwich proportions here are ridiculous.  My sandwich above was size huge.  I cannot imagine was sizes gigantic and colossal look like.  Tender roast beef with mustard on an onion bun.  Simple, classic and delicious.  I’ll be back.  =)
