This past week, my dad came home and his co-worker told him about this restaurant called ‘Hunter’s Pizza’ (located on the corner of Birchmount and Huntingwoord in Scarborough). I heard about this restaurant when I was in elementary school (now I’m in university . My classmate and grade 7 teacher were always talking about it (from what I recall). So, this past saturday, my dad and I went to try it out. We ordered the special, which is ‘Hunter’s Deluxe.’ The toppings consisted of tomato sauce, cheese pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, bacon, onions, green pepers and sliced tomatoes.
It was our first time, so the price didn’t quite matter and we are most likely not going to order the deluxe because it was quite expensive. we ordered a large that was $22.25. The total came to about $25.00 for a 17-inch pizza. The wait was around 10 minutes because there was no customers in the restaurant at that time. The lady, I’m assuming I spoke to the owner’s wife, told my dad and I that it gets busy on Saturday nights and there are a lot of Chinese people that get take out. The restaurant serves lamb souvlaki and she said that is it a popular dish among Chinese people that order take out. The restaurant also serves a variety of pizza and greek cuisine .
The pizza had about 10 to 12 slices. It’s different from Pizza Pizza and Pizza Hut because the bottom layer of the dough (what the toppings are put on) is very thin, and therefore is crispy. The crust is soft and not hard to chew on (like other un-named pizzas that I had before).
Verdict: My dad definitely wants to go back to try other items on the menu it’s very rare that he says such a thing).
