This funky new food court just opened downtown in the Google building on Richmond St. Now, whenever there’s a new food court in town, you KNOW I’m not far behind—but you won’t find any Mickey D’s or KFC here, bro! Instead, they’ve got these fancy eateries from all over the city offering scaled down versions of their menu in a fast-food format. Assembly Chef’s Hall is outta bounds!!!
Now, pizza is probably one of my most favourite things in the world. Dude, this is body by pizza, bro! So it figures that the very first place I’d frequent in the food court would be this funky joint, Goodson Pizza. They’ve got a full service restaurant on Queen St W, but over here, they’re doing what they do best, serving up a handful of scratch-made, real-deal, Italian-style pies. They even stretch the dough out on the counter right before your eyes!
Now this here is my personal pan favourite, the spicy sopressata. You’ve got a nice base from the San Marzano tomatoes, some ooey, gooey bites of flor di latte, and a whole buncha cured Italian meat, bro! Crust is not too chewy, not too crispy, and there’s a nice little kick from the chili oil. This is definitely the best pizza you’ll ever get at a food court—it puts a horse’s head in Sbarro’s bed, mafi-bro-so!!!!
