Two nights later Lisa and I ordered the Camembert cheese fondue pie. The picture on the flier looked so amazing and we were very excited, even if this wasn't one of their double decker pies. Camembert is my favorite type of cheese so I enjoyed my pizza but I have to say would forgo this fondue experience for more layers of cheese and bread. I'm also not a fan of the gridcut on a pizza pie which produces uneven slices and sad little triangular corners. Lisa actually split the middle piece in half in spirit of fairness but I thought that was kind of sad.


Lisa and i were spending our saturday getting over the events of friday, naturally waking up at 4pm, hungry. We decided to be adventurous and try dominos instead of pizzahut [note mild sarcasm]. Dominos pies which are about 3000円 is significantly more expensive than pizzahut, nearly double the price. Here's why.

This is the Garlic2 pizza, wth tomatoes, black olives, onions and slices of garlic (galic - win!).
The first thing I noticed was that when the deliveryboy handed me the pie, it was much heavier than pizza hut's.

Dominos is much more generous with the cheese to the point where the crust is nearly nonexistent because it is overwhemed by all the cheese. I say if it's not nypizza crust theres no reason why crust shouldn't scooch over for a little extra cheese. There are two layers of pizzabread between which there is a lovely layer of cheese which i'm guessing is camembert. It tastes and feels like a hybrid of mozarella and ricotta.

and it oozes!

The dominos menu doesn't have as interesting topping combos as pizzahut (such as their Korean pulkoki and their Clam chowder pies) but they do have a Waku waku pokemon set which features a pie of four different flavor combos. In any case the cheesy middle and the extra layer of carb action gives dominos impunity on this one. pizzahut has been totally pwned.

wow. that actually looks decent, though i can't believe it's double the price! i haven't had dominoes in years.. i actually like pizza hut better. and with all the new pizza places popping up in taipei, i've been eating that.

ah i've never tried pizzahut or dominos in taipei. i just had such a bad experience at alleycats that i gave up on pizza entirely.

next time in taipei i'll def order pizzahut tho. ^^

I LOVE the little sad corners on Domino's thin crust pizzas. They are small enough that even if I am full I can eat one of them and not feel guilty about it. The flexibility in size allows me to be more forgiving to its sub par crust to topping ratio.
