Fang, there might be some good places in Sydney. Almost every city of size has good pizza. But the NY pizza quality bell curve is well to the right of any other city.

Sydney must be an outlier then.

And Finn with Brazil out of nowhere!

 

The Northeast United States hate that was limited to southerners has now become international.

This is not support for the quality but millions of people nationwide eat Detroit pizza everyday. Every Domino's and Little Ceasar's sold is basically Detroit pizza delivered to your door.

Are the self deprecating commercials part of the Detroit identity?

i wasted $70 for shitty pizza in Rio. I bet you can find good pizza there but you'll still have to pay a lot. It was like when I was in Prague, I was craving a regular hamburger and had an awesome one when I gambled on my hotel room service menu, but of course it was extravagantly expensive.

The ironic meal for me in Rio was at their most famous Brazilian Steak/Grill place. The food was great, but it was over $300 for just my wife and I (and we didn't even drink), and was chuckling at the times I've been hoodwinked by friends to eat at the Brazilian Grill in hells kitchen and had the same "why did I just do that to myself?" feeling.

the northeast has great pizza to price and accessibility ratio. just like the southwest/california/westcoast has great mexican food to price ratio and accessibility ratio.

try finding great mexican food in NYC. you can probably find it but it'll cost you or you'll really have to find it.

which swings us back to the midwest... where chicago is super underrrated when it comes to mexican food. I've always wondered why there's such a huge mexican population in chicago and why it isn't portrayed in the media (through TV shows and what not).

I would imagine that a Brazilian pizza would be completely bare.

Pizza is a weird thing. My grandparent's from Italy used to make their own pizza and I would say it most resembled either deep dish, or Sicilian. Mind you, they weren't Sicilian either, my grandfather was Neapolitan. Basically they would bake the dough and make a big kind of loaf, and then make sauce in a bowl and ladle it onto the baked dough. The sauce would have some spices in it like basil, garlic, and so on and then just some sprinkled grated cheese on it. That was pizza. This whole idea of "Neapolitan" pizza is largely a modern thing. Also these "cities" that have their own style of pizza aren't doing anything new.

So sick of hearing this. I honestly think it is just something people from the south say to be "cooler" than people from the north. How much better can fucking rice and beans get? I ate dinner with a friend from Mexico City a few months ago. He even said it's fine.

he was humoring you. trust me. Just like how I humored the brazilain place I got pizza at when they asked me if it was "better than NY Pizza"? i wouldn't of really cared, but $70 for a small pizza, two cokes and a slice of meh tiramisu left me sad I didn't just try something native.
