What are some of your favorite places out there?
I've lived here all my life (Brea, Newport Beach, and now Costa Mesa)
and ive been a dough head since i could walk so i've tried a lot of places.
There are really only 3 places that i REALLY like. The rest are all edible but not even worthy of listing.
#1 Haus of Pizzahttp://www.onlineguide.com/restaurants/dorias.html
Hole in the wall joint in Costa Mesa... awesome food. Good pastas too.
#2 Nick's Pizzahttp://www.nickspizzapasta.com/
This stuff is good... actually its a toss up for me between this and the Haus of Pizza... both can switch between #1 and #2 on any given night
#3 Al's New York Cafehttp://www.alsnewyorkcafe.com/
After going to New York in December on a pizza quest... this is the only place ive ever had in so cal that i've had that should be called New York Style. Holy crap the pizza rules here... super thin and crispy, The NYC special is the BOMB Pepperoni, Sausage, Onion, Garlic, Double Cheese
I've been going here since i was 13 years old. I'm now 27. It's gone through a crapload of names... Ray's, Mo's, NYC Cafe, now Al's New York. Al is cool.. if you live in So Cal or are here check this place out....
I think i'll start posting some pics of these joints
