About me: Before graduating from college and entering into the software industry I was a chef, trained in Paris/Corsica. I have attended/trained at some of the finest culinary schools in Europe, albeit part time. My family's restaurant in Calvi, Corsica, holds a Michelin star. I used to spend every summer there during the tourist season, and I know what it takes to meet the highest standards of food and service, so when it comes to judging food I think I'm fairly well qualified.
About Mike's Pizza Kitchen: (the food) I went to Mike's today for a Pinnochio and it was better than any pizza I've had anywhere... ever... in my life. The generous amounts of Mariana sauce contained so much flavour, I dared waste any, I had to use the crust of my pizza to mop it up. The vegetables were fresh, the moz was great and the crust was a totally perfect balance between crisp and moist. Mike and Aiqing obviously have an excellent understanding of gastronomy and care a heck of a lot more about their product and their customers than any other dining establishment I've visted in this city so far
Mike and Aiqing clearly take incredible care during the entire sourcing of ingredeients, preparation and cooking process. I have visited some of the best Pizzerias in Italy and France where they charge a lot more money and don't have the challenge of sourcing fresh ingredients (some of which must be very hard to find in China).
The resulting pies are inferior to Mike and Aiqing's.
(the service) Prompt, quick, friendly, unlike any other restaurant in Chengdu. I must say there are some reviews here by some rather cretinous individuals who clearly don't know, care or understand what good food/good service is all about. If you want to wait an hour for half cooked, dirty, microwaved frozen shite thrown on to your table by staff who couldn't give a shit and pay a lot more for it, do me a favour, stop hogging the few tables here and go somewhere else.
