Good eats

March 2, 2009 —

If you read my blog entries even on a semi-regular basis, you’ll realize I’m pretty food-obsessed. Can’t help it – there’s just so many yummy things to eat around here!

So I was super excited to hear about a new downtown place that wasn’t your typical chain restaurant eatery. Fong’s Pizza is a combo of Asian & Italian. Egg rolls stuffed with pizza toppings – pizza rolls. Pizza with hoisin, Szechuan or Thai peanut sauce and a whole array of toppings. It’s sooo yummy. My husband & I devoured an order of pizza rolls and a taco pizza. Next time I’m there, I’ll be trying the desserts. They also have some fun tropical drinks.
