The Brix Pizza Joint Story:
This week I got to try out another pizza spot in Itaewon called Brix Pizza Joint! Brix Pizza Joint is located on the main road of Itaewon just a little bit past all the busy bars and restaurants. It is located under an On The Border and next to a lounge called Boom Bar. Outside the restaurant looks very modern and minimal. The building is a brick stoned building with a nice outside deck where you can sit if the weather permits. The entrance has a small sized neon light that say Brix Pizza Joint and a pizza sign to welcome you inside.
While outside was very modern and minimal, inside you are greeted with elegance. When you enter there is a full bar on your left and rows of seating. In the back of the restaurant there is a huge chandelier surrounded with more tables to bring a classy vibe. When I walked in I was stunned by the view. I had gone to Brix Pizza Joint on a Friday Night dinner with a couple of friends and this place was packed. Inside and outside had a body occupying every seat. The chandelier, people enjoying each other's company, and the music in the background gave this spot a very cool ambiance and feel.
I always have an affinity with open kitchens... and Brix Pizza Joint has one. In the very back they had an open kitchen and a huge dome oven to make the pizzas. The workers here were working hard stretching the dough, and using the pizza peel to feed the pizza into the oven. It is always fun to see someone making delicious food.
The menu was filled with salads, fries, wings, pastas, pizza, and alcohol. After reading over menu and discussing with the waiter my buddies and I decided to order two orders of wings and one pizza to share.
The Food Ordered At Brix Pizza Joint:
Spicy Chicken Wings
Taste: The Spicy Chicken Wings were really nice. It wasn’t dripping with sauce, but you could still taste the heat and spices in every bite you had. The chicken was fried and seasoned very well. Oddly the side of ranch(?) was different from the first plate to the second one. However, ignoring the mysterious ranch sauce, the chicken was good. After taking the first bite, I almost didn’t want to share the wings and wanted to eat them all myself.
Taste: Brix Pizza Joint oddly only offer one size for their pizza. We were curious to see how big the pizza would come out. When the pepperoni pizza came out, the pizza wasn’t as small as an medium size pizza, but it was closer to a large size pizza. The pizza's taste was solid. It was cut into 8 small slices and it was packed with pepperoni. The cheese was nice and melted and had a nice cheese pull. Also, the sauce was delicious and tangy.
Taste Continue: When I first saw the pizza, I thought it looked like Papa John's Pizza and almost dismissed how the crust would feel and taste. However, when I picked up the pizza it had a nice crunchy thin crust on the bottom and had airy pockets at the end of the crust. The pizza had a very good balance. The heat and salty from the pepperoni and the cheese, the tanginess from the sauce, and the crispy crust all mixed together was nice.
Overall the food was solid here. It wasn’t the best pizza in Seoul or even Itaewon, but it is a damn solid pizza. This is a pizza that will keep you happy. The ambiance of the restaurant may even kick the experience up a notch. I definitely want to come back and try their pastas and other pizza toppings!
