Famoso Pizzeria - Dine Out 2014 - East Side Brunch Crawl

This year for Dine Out Vancouver, I had the pleasure of participating in the East End Brunch Crawl, courtesy of Urbanspoon! Thankyou to Urbanspoon for giving me the opportunity to participate in both Street Food City III and the East Side Brunch Crawl!

 The concept of the Brunch Crawl is you receive a "passport" with a list of restaurants. From 10 am to 2 pm, you get to visit the restaurants on the list at your leisure. At each stop, you get the sample the restaurant's offerings and your passport is marked off.

The restaurants participating in this year's Brunch Crawl were: Yolk's Breakfast, Famoso's Neapolitan Pizzeria, Parallel 49 Brewing, Tyler's Taco & Tea, Oollo Tea, Turks Coffee Lounge, Dolce Amore, Siddartha's Indian Kitchen and Timbre Restaurant!
Margherita Pizza 3/5 stars
The Margherita consisted of fior-di-latte,fresh basil, pecorino ramano, and extra virgin olive oil.

This pizza was rather bland and one dimensional. The crust had a deep robust smokey flavour, having been oven roasted. 

Cavoletti Pizza 4/5 stars
The Cavoletti is oven-roasted with brussel sprouts, proscuitto crisps, gorgonzola cheese, dates, walnuts and honey.

This pizza was amazing! The proscuitto crisps added a nice crunch and definitely elevated this pizza to another level! The dates and honey infused the pizza with a delectable sweet and salty flavour!
