City o' City Denver

City o' city is a great dark wooded beer drinking pizza place. I fell in love with the Buffalo Wings. My first bite and there was this delicious Buffalo Sauce slathered piece of seitan with a ... what?! CRUNCH?!

The vegan ranch made this the best ever wings.

Now the pizza. Am I a New York Pizza snob? I don't think so. I eat just about anything that is put in front of me. The pizza I ordered was like a meat lovers with veggie sausage, pepperoni and bacon. It was a very non distinctive pizza and I couldn't, unless I took a slice of this or a crumble of that identify a particular taste. Perhaps it was my overloading the pie thinking that this might be the gateway to meatless nirvana but it just fell a little short. The crust wasn't anything to write home about either. It wasn't bad at all, just sort of nondescript.

Still, I'd have to vote for another chance if I find myself in Denver. (It wasn't to go to the convention, other work brought me there). Next time I'd just do say, sausage and peppers to see if the flavors stood out a bit better.

I'd rather have a mediocre attempt at mock meat on a pizza by an establishment that was TRYING then a better quality pie at any pizzeria where throwing some veggies on top of a pie is thought to satisfy the vegetarian world. It doesn't. Get off your butt and try to make something good, not something you can merely call "vegetarian".

Now I didn't get to read the label but the Oogave Cola was a pleasant surprise. I'd like to give that a few more tastes and hopefully I'll be able to cross paths with this product again.
