There are several things that made us weary of trying Churchgate’s brand new Pizza Cottage, starting with its Pizza Hut-inspired logo and ending with a musty two table seating area. In between were other warning signs that wafted out of an open kitchen with hygiene issues. Old and crusty!
A olive's throw away from one of us Scouter’s homes, we walked over to this vegetarian garage eatery to place our order. Unable to stomach the mezzanine seating arrangement, we asked for our order to be home delivered. As promised, twenty minutes later on the dot, a parcel of garlic bread, Melty Cheese Chilli Mexico Pizza and a simple Margherita pie was sitting at our dining table. The options we passed up include the typical fusion cuisine pizzas with toppings like paneer tikka, Chinese chilli sauce and Sicilian cottage cheese.
We started, unfortunately with the garlic bread, which tasted stale with a too-heavy hand of garlic. Next came the Mexican pizza, which was nothing but a plain cheese pie, each slice topped with a sorry-looking jalapeno. The “punch of barbeque sauce” promised on the menu produced an unpleasant tangy sensation that made us quit this pizza after two bites. We looked to the classic margherita with much hope, but this too failed us. An undercooked base rendered it almost inedible.
We really wish they'd given us something nice to say. And yes, we too were hoping for a quick, yum and painless pizza delivery service in the area, but it looks like the value of pie doesn’t amount to much at Pizza Cottage.
Getting there: Pizza Cottage, 82/10, Nagin Mahal, VN Road, Churchgate, Rs 300 for a meal for two, Rs 120 for an 8 inch margherita, free home delivery in the area.
