We were treated to lunch and all opinions are my own.
My husband I recently enjoyed a lovely weekend away from the suburbs and into Philly. It was wonderful to take the train and enjoy the big city of brotherly love. I look froward sharing more about our adventures in another post but for now I share the tasty pizza place we checked out before we left the city.
SliCE pizza has been in the foodie scene for a while and has gotten some awards for their Italian creations. We found out that the restaurant was offering some specialty pizzas for the month of March and we decided to take a taste of the St. Pat’s pizza which consisted of ham , cabbage, bacon, swiss and spicy mustard. I think my hubby was a bit skeptical but at the end we thought the flavors were pretty amazing. Give ME anything with spicy mustard and I’m all in.
The next special we tried was the shrimp scampi pizza. I believe I have had the dish once as had my hubby so we thought it would be hard to tell if it was close to the dish. The amount of shrimp per slice was perfect and the flavors were super tasty. I enjoyed not having an overwhelming amount of cheese for these slices of pizzas.
We could not leave without having a traditional pizza because, even though we like trying new dishes, sometimes it boils down to the classics. We ordered a pepperoni and portabella pizza. We are super picky when it comes to mushrooms, so when we found out this pizza had FRESH portabella mushrooms we were thankful.
We received our large pizza and started devouring each slice. The sauce was flavorful and the pizza slices were somewhat thick and perfectly cooked. The added ingredient was evenly distributed. The pizza crust was crispy and well done in their brick oven.
While SliCE offers an huge variety of gourmet pizza, there are other items on the menu to try, from calzones to salads and more! Even though there are slices waiting to be ordered on the spot, I totally recommend dining in and ordering a fresh hot pizza. All pizza ingredients are prepared fresh daily and as we found out each restaurant does not have a fridge. Everything is prepared on the spot and daily.
There are three locations in Philly. Make sure to check out their Facebook page for locations. We enjoyed the Rittenhouse location.
