Tonight, I had the worst pizza experience in Halifax.
We ordered a medium mexican pizza with a medium garlic fingers and small nachos. This was advertised on their website for $19. When we called and placed our order, the man who answered the phone told us the price went up to $22. We weren't too bothered by the price change, as we thought it was still a pretty good deal. We were told it would be about 45 minutes.
45 minutes later, we got a call from the same man who took our order. He told us we would have to pay by cash since their debit machine wasn't working. We didn't have cash and didn't intend on leaving our apartment to get any (it was a snowy day and we didn't want to go outside.. which was why we ordered pizza in the first place). The man said he would try the debit machine anyway.
10 minutes later, still no pizza. They called us back and asked us where Cunard Street was, and said there was only a Cunard Avenue on their map (I should probably note that there doesn't seem to be a Cunard Ave. in Halifax according to Google Maps). We gave them directions to our apartment.
About 5 or 10 minutes later, the pizza arrives. The delivery guy didn't say a word as he handed us the pizza. Thankfully, the debit machine did work.
Now on to the food. Not surprizingly, everything was cold. Me and my girlfriend dug into the pizza. It wasn't... bad. The mexican pizza was what I had expected, just colder. We opened up the nachos. They came with a small plastic container of salsa, and also one of sour cream. The first thing my girlfriend noticed was the the lid on the salsa wasn't flat like it was on the sour cream, but very rounded. We thought nothing of this. I grabbed one of the nachos from the metal dish they came in and dipped it in the salsa. The flavor of the salsa is what I would imagine baking soda and vinegar would tast like. It was fermented and rancid. It smelled like alcohol and I think I may have gotten a buzz just from my taste of it.
I was very worried after realizing the salsa was not edible, since the mexican pizza has salsa on it. I took one more bite of the pizza and realized the pizza tasted a bit like a science fair volcano also, just like the salsa. My girlfriend and I had already each had a slice of the pizza. Needless to say, we threw the pizza out.
If the garlic fingers came hot, I think they would have beed decent. There was enough cheese, not quite enough garlic. There wasn't enough donair sauce included, and it was too runny anyway.
Overall, this is by far the worst pizza experience I have ever had in Halifax. We won't be coming back.---Three Quarters
