The Hungry Penguin

Pizza Heaven

#43 on Vancouver magazines top 100 things to eat and drink in Vancouver is the Bianca Pizza at Nicili Antica. The toppings on this pizza were a perfect balance of everything fabulous: roasted garlic, roasted onion, parmigiano, gorgonzola and of course a healthy topping of extra virgin olive oil.

The pizza at Nicili Antica was very tasty but if you are looking for the best pizza in the city Nook is the place to go. The pizza crust at Nook is soft, salty and perfect every time. The pizza at Nicili Antica was very well made and very appetizing but compared to Nook the crust seemed very tough.

I love thin crust pizza. I have been addicted to Nook pizza since the very first bite. I always order the special, they are fabulous at coming up with new delectable combinations with garlic, onion, and pancetta, often using in-season vegetables and speciality cheeses. Burrata cheese can comely be found on pizza special or the crostini special, it is so creamy and scrumptious, you have to try it! The pasta is also fantastic. I love the Spaghetti Bolognese, a common dish made so well with great quality ingredients and perfect spicing.


Go Fish!

Hungry Penguins need fish!  I satisfied my fish cravings at Go Fish this weekend.  It was the perfect lunch for the first rainy saturday of the season.

Classic 2 piece fish & chips (1 salmon/1 cod)

Qualicum bay scallop sandwich with sweet mesquite BBQ sauce & caramelized onions.
