Third Stop of Dishcrawl Vancouver: Silk Road Tour - Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria
After all the meats and coucous at Carthage Cafe, it was a relieft to go for a short walk down to Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria for our next stop. Walking past the kitchen, you can see the Caputo flour they use, as well as a peek of the bell oven.
Despite having an entire meal already, we went backwards upon arrival and started with appetizers all over again. No complaints though both these items were amazing! On the left is a simple Caprese Salad, with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. i appreciated the thick slices of the mozza the most. A simple balsamic dressing let the freshness of the ingredients shine through.
On the right is their Fire-Roasted Tomato Bisque. The heady flavour of these cooked and pureed tomatoes is unmistakable And the bit of feta melting on top gave the soup a rich and salty flavour too. Pure comfort food! Dip some of the pizza bread into the soup for added heartiness!
Our main course was the Margherita Pizza. Simple with tomato sauce, basil and some fior di latte. I had expected more of a char on the crust, akin to the pizza bread from above. However the toppings were nicely melted into the pizza and despite a lack of blistering on the crust, the rest of the pizza was not soggy. The best part of the pizza has to be the tomato sauce, it's fresh, crisp and very light.
