@MasaofEchoPark #Pizza


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. πŸ˜›

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)!!!

Oh my! This place was such a treat! We got there earlier than our reservation so we had drinks at the bar and had the most pleasant bartender. Unlike The Continental Club.

He was sweet and wasn’t too talky! πŸ˜›

We ordered the prosciutto and gnocchi. Both were simply amazing! Unlike our normal selves, we didn’t finish the pasta but we did finish our vodka on the rocks! πŸ™‚
