As we are only six months into our new home, I am still hunting for restos in the neighbourhood. Last night was the search for delivery pizza not part of a chain. From a local flyer I found Granada Pizza in New Westminster. It’s funny. When I was searching for Granada on-line I came across a Facebook page for it that stated it may be permanently closed. Well I can tell you it definitely is open, and from the amount of flyers I receive about it weekly, I don’t foresee it closing too soon.
They have a “1 Large Pizza Special” on the front of their take out/delivery menu so I decided to try it. The special includes one large 3-topping pizza, 2 pieces of BBQ ribs, 1 large lasagna, 2 individual sized green salads, and 2 garlic toast, plus two cans of Coke for free (a common complimentary item in their larger specials, I soon learned), all for only $21.95 plus tax.
I know it may sound like a lot of food to order for two adults and a 15 month old, but I love eating bits of lots of things, so several things in a package is almost irresistible to me.
The food arrived at my pre-arranged delivery time and it was piping hot! The salad was very simple, with commonly packaged dressing. The garlic toast was only buttered on one side, but still a thick-cut slice. The ribs were a bit dry, but is basted in barbeque for serving, which helps. The lasagna tastes great, cheesy and meaty with a mild kick. My little one ate his all up.
After eating the salad, garlic toast, a side of ribs, and one serving of lasagna I was pretty full. I barely tasted the pizza and had plenty left over for the next day. While taste overall may be average, the food quantity and the price makes it a menu keeper for me and puts Granada into my mmmmura category (see my About page for further explanation). They have a number of other specials that I can try the next rainy, “don’t feel like cooking”, night.
