The Brick Oven New York Pizza Story :
September 12, 2018
This week I visited Brick Oven New York Pizza today in Itaewon (they have a 2nd location in Gangnam) with a couple of buddies. The place is located on the main road of Itaewon, only having to go straight out of Itaewon Station exit 2 for about 2-3 minutes. From the restaurant name you could tell that they serve New York style pizza and Italian food. The inside was very spacious and we grabbed a seat with no problem. *Side note, we went on a weekday lunch so that maybe the reason why we grab a seat so easily. The worker kindly told us we would have to wait 10 minutes to order, since there was only one pizza chef and several other groups had ordered before us.
They have a very extensive menu filled with Pizza, Pasta, Salad, Appetizers, and Drinks. They offer two sizes of pizza 'Couple' size which feeds 2-3 people and 'Party' size which feeds 4-5 people. After reading the menu and getting recommendations from the worker we decided to grab a Party size pizza (even though we were a party of 3) and since we are fat, added an order of fries for our appetizer.
The Food Ordered At Brick Oven New York Pizza:
Garlic Romano Fries
Taste: They were garlic fries with cheese sprinkled on top with a side of garlic ranch(?) dipping sauce. We couldn't figure out what the sauce was, but dipping the fries and your pizza crust into it was bomb. The fries were fried perfectly with a nice crunchy exterior and a soft fluffy inside.
Godfather Pizza 'Party Size'
Taste: When you see the word Godfather at an Italian joint you know its about to be lit. The Godfather pizza had homemade Italian sausage, ground beef, pepperoni, onion, garlic, jalapenos, and mozzarella. The pizza was massive. The pizza was cut into 12 skinny slices and the toppings were distributed evenly and nicely. The pizza had a nice heat coming from the homemade Italian sausage and jalapenos. The cheese was nice and bubbly hot coming straight from their brick oven. The sauce was subtle but very good; it shined when it needed to and complemented the other toppings when it needed to do that also.
Taste Continued: The pizza had a nice crispy thin crust. Brick Oven New York Pizza has one of the best crust I've had in Korea. The bottom of the pizza was cooked nicely and it had a good hold to it.
This place was pricey but they know how to make a mean New York slice. If you grab a couple of buddies to split the bill, then it's definitely a place to check out for great pizza.
