Pizzédelic MontrealPosted By Jennifer Ho May 30 2011 · 0 comments · Dining Out
Being directly on Mont-Royal street, Pizzédelic‘s terrasse is perfect for people watching. Taking advantage of the last few rays of sunlight we could catch after work, we ordered a pitcher of white wine sangria with frozen raspberries and orange slices. Even with the frozen fruit, it tasted light and fresh, like it was supposed to.
I had the $4 traditional gazpacho made of cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers and garlic which wasn’t bad for the relatively casual restaurant that Pizzédelic is – in fact, they did a fine job. For the mains, we both ordered pizzas – the L’Hydroponique and the Calabrese. The former seemed attractive on the menu for its plentiful vegetables but in reality, when the dish was actually served, the veggies overwhelmed the pizza and made it quite heavy. The eggplant slices were hard and undercooked as opposed to soft and grilled, which is what I would have expected. The latter tasted great – the sausage was one of the key components that really made the dish. Additionally, both pizzas were thin-crusted.
Pizzedelic’s appeal isn’t the actual quality – it’s about the great prices, the option of sitting outdoors in the summertime and the bustling location. It’s perfect if you want to get a decent meal at a low cost while remaining in one of the city’s hot spots.
