This hole-in-the-wall pizza joint has some of the best authentic New York-style pizza in Jakarta.
Sure, we try to be good and healthy most of the time, but sometimes all we want is a decent slice of pizza. Hey, life is all about balance after all. When Pizza Place opened up in Kemang, the old-school pizza shop quickly won hearts of pizza-loving crowd in the Big Durian offering some of the best authentic New York-style slices in the city. The hole-in-the-wall pizzeria is tucked underneath the staircase at Como Park, serving oven fresh pizza for the hungry masses.
Pizza Place uses top-quality ingredients – case in point: its lip-smacking tomato sauce that is the base for most of its classic slices. This one is for the traditionalists, and your order here is simple: cheese, pepperoni, ricotta white, Sicilian or pesto. The pizza pies are cooked up fresh every single day, and they get the thickness of the crust just right. Do yourselves a favour and drizzle your slice with their special infused hot honey for a sweet but spicy kick of flavour. You’re welcome.
Pizza Place’s no-frills set-up also lets their pizza do the talking. Just like a classic NYC joint, the eatery is not exactly a place where you and your mates can hang for a few hours. Inside, Pizza Place only has a narrow counter with a few stools for you to quickly eat your slice and go. Their wall is covered from bottom-to-ceiling with scribbled on pizza plates that are quite the sight. As an ode to the Big Apple pizzerias this place is modeled after, there are also photos of classic joints such as Lombardi’s all over the place.
Though most diners who dine-in grab pizza by the slice, you’re also welcome to takeaway a generous serving of the whole pie, but if you can’t make the trip over, fret not as Pizza Place also delivers. Lucky you.
