What came first the Pizza or the TV? Football, Grand prix, Rugby, Film premieres and UK and US Election nights have only one edible soundtrack – door delivered Pizza. We’ve dialled these guys before when we sunk our teeth into their Pizza Chorizo. Cappuccino still serve my pizzas of choice in this town. After previous bread-based disasters in Saigon (Annie’s Pizza for one) I’ll admit I’m wary of dipping my toes into just any old new dough in town. The latest addition to the pizza scene I’ve spotted is Pizza Inn at 8A/D5 Thai Van Lung in District 1. Prices start at 85,000VD and rise to 190,000VD and they only have a pathetic 8 pizza offerings. Cappuccino floor Pizza Inn with their 34 varieties. Cappuccino’s most expensive large pizza is still cheaper than Pizza Inn’s budget end regular pizzas. Plus Pizza Inn is always empty, and I wasn’t gonna risk pizza-issues on election night. No siree. The wood-fired stakes were too high.
I thought a change would bode well for the evening – …it didn’t… just shows you can’t trust in that feisty, bitch pizza god – I ordered the signature Cappuccino Pizza (Blue cheese, ham, mushroom and bell pepper, large size for 64,000VD). It arrived inside thirty minutes. Large pizza orders, as we’ve mentioned before, also come with a free Coca-Cola and seasonal fruit. No bananas this time, we get a sliced pineapple. Nice one. The pizza is just OK, veering sharply into soggy territory (Is that the mushroom, bell pepper combo’s fault??). As a result, this was merely adequate scoff, nothing more and as an election night pizza pal, this provided little entertainment (or luck). I’ve now tried around six different pizzas from Cappuccino and I’d have to say the Pizza Chorizo is definitely the way to go.
