Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #98!

So, as promised, here’s that new (short) Hot Flash! For those of you who’ve never heard of zpizza — and don’t feel bad; I’d never heard of it until I went there — it’s a pizza chain restaurant that was rated as having something like the best pizza in the DC area. It kinda reminded me of the pizza one would find at a joint in a college town or at a trendy bistro (read: “authentic” pizza), which is to say that you’ll definitely enjoy it if you consider yourself to be a pizza connoisseur or balk at the idea of ordering delivery from Dominoes. But me? I’d personally rather have a slice of the good ol’ cheap Pizza Hut ‘za. I heart Pizza Hut.

Anyway, zpizza had these cards that I guess I should have filled out and left with them, but I thought the prompt was funny and would make for a good quickie comic so yep yep here we are. 🙂

Also, on the same day, we swung by another restaurant by the name of Cheeburger Cheeburger. You might not think too much of a place that misspells the name of its flagship menu item (twice), but the onion rings that I got there were absolutely fantastic. I hear that the burgers are pretty good too, but I couldn’t tell you about that since I do not eat beef. They put your picture on the wall if you eat an entire one-pound burger in one sitting (half-pounders for kids), which I guess would have seemed cool to me back in the day. Now, though, I’d just feel embarrassed.

This from the guy who photographed himself eating Pup Corn.

Anyway, that does it for this post — again, comments are encouraged, and (per my comments in the previous entry) do let me know what you think of the updated layout! Ja, minna-san.

    That’s interesting! We have Zpizza in Northern California. I assumed it was a local or regional chain. Most restaurant franchises “no one has heard of” do not stretch coast-to-coast. What we do have exclusively here is the surfer-themed “Pizza My Heart”, Santa Cruz-style thin crust pizza. It’s absolutely delicious!
    The Zpizza seemed more trendy, like California Pizza Kitchen. I base this on the fact that they offer chicken as a topping and alternative sauces. Can be a nice change of pace, but don’t mess with the classics!

    Here inArgentina, we have a LOT of pizza places, ranging from the crappy take out kind (Pizza Kazz/Tazz/whatever, El Mundo de la Pizza) to the tasty restaurant kind (Il Modo, Pizza Banana).

    If you ever find yourself in Corrientes, check out “Banchero”. That’s the best pizza place in all of Argentina.

    Jax: I despise thin crust pizza! Well, not really, but since I cannot actually bite through it I must use a fork and knife to eat it. Using a knife and fork to eat pizza (unless it’s incredibly thick pizza, which is different) just seems wrong.

    agustinaldo: “El Mundo de la Pizza” — that’s great! Five words to essentially call the place “Pizza World”. 🙂 And I will definitely make it a point to check out Banchero if I ever visit Corrientes.

    Pizza Hut would probably qualify as the “crappy take out kind” of pizza, but it’s just sooo good! They must use msg in it or something.

    It is full of Grimlock and win. (Okay so there’s more than one banner. That’s the one that jumped at me first.)

    Well, Grimlock is king! :mrgreen:
