I’m not a fan of Chicago style pizza, but I am a fan of Masa! This place is intimate and the service is by far the best in Los Angeles (which isn’t a fine dining establishment). Everyone was so cheerful and attentive, the quality of every dish was above expectations and it was popping!
Thank god I made a reservation because we had five adults and three children. We ordered two pizzas, (my fave) gnocchi, salad and the bread pudding. By the way, their bread pudding is made from croissants. No wonder it’s so freaking buttery and out of this world. I love bread pudding to begin with so when our friend who frequents this place insisted we order it, I was on board. Little did we know it was made from croissants.
We got the meat lovers pizza and the other was a veggie. I preferred the veggie since Chicago style pizzas are already really heavy. Even their bread (that they serve pre-meal) was tasty.
Now time for me to talk about the gnocchi. Super garlicky, lots of mushrooms and cooked to perfection. I could have eaten the whole plate but I didn’t want to kill my husband that evening and the next day with my toots. 😛
I never thought I’d say this but I can’t wait to go back (to a place that’s known for their Chicago style pizza)!!!
I had breakfast from the local donut shop. I was really craving a ham & cheese croissant with jalapenos. I wished there were more jalapenos and it was warmer.
I found a new place in Downey but their jalapeno is half a long one and definitely not enough. 😦
I’m a suck for ham and swiss croissants with jalapenos.
I found one on the way to work and was pleasantly surprised by how yummy it was.
My issue with a lot of places is that the ham to cheese to jalapeno ratio is never right.
This place offered to put jalapenos inside for me and I was so happy to see that they filled it up!
Thank you and I shall be back!
The donuts looks pretty amazing too!
Being back in Downey I get to pick up my favorite breakfast item.
Ham and cheese croissant with jalapeno.
Came yesterday to Jack in the crack and they weren’t available. I came back today before picking up Bear Baby and got two orders.
When I pulled up to pay, the guy asked if I had tried them yet. I replied no. He then said, “they’re pretty good”.
The girl behind him said, “pretty good? They’re really good!!!”
To my surprise they were!
Fluffy, warm and soft. Could use a bit more cinnamon and sugar but they’re all at the bottom of the bag, so u can scoop and dip.
Everyone must go out now and try!!!
