So where is this Sahara? Dukes' large pizza is HUGE, enough for two (man and Thai girl) with enough to take home for one more meal.

Where is Pizza and Pasta located? I haven't tried that one yet.

Good pizza indeed, but I think it's closed or they have moved ? Mad dog's is good too, but too small sizes.

Ordered one of Pizza Co's new Italian sausage pizza during the promotion. It was better than their regular pizzas. Mot much available for home delivery where we live other than Pizza Co. Now I'm hungary thinking about pizza.

Why don't you Czech the fridge?
Yes, recycling old jokes. Sorry.

I think I have tried every pizza there is in Chiang and they are all crap. Thai's just can't make pizza just like they can't bake bread.

Most unfortunate but Pizza Company (and Pizza Hut) have taken the thin and crispy off their menus. Must be popular enough. Thai's obviously aren't into it. A crying shame I say.
The thin is now "thin and soggy". Not even close....

Was this ancient thread re-opened to enquire about Rustica or to criticize Pizza Hut & Company?
Posted 2013-01-16 21:23:31
Both. Mainly the "is Rustica still open" bit.
Is their a law against re-opening a thread?

No not at all, thanks for the clarification.

It is too bad that they do not have New York crust available like they do in the USA. No one does a decent New York crust here and that is exactly what many of us are looking for. To me, Pizza Hut is too expensive, but not bad (considering where we are) other than the lousy crusts available in Thailand.

Mama Mia's is still the very best by a mile that I have found in CM

It is in Mae Jo
I am terrible at giving directions but there was a thread here on TV about it with good directions
Into google maps & your starting location for directions
Also here is a website in Thai but good pictures
It is Italian & the owner Joseph is Italian
It is really delicious & hand tossed right there & then
Service is fast & good
Price is incredibly cheap IMHO at 150 baht for a Salami Pizza that will really stuff two normal sized folks
We usually get the pizza & a garden salad big enough for two which comes with a basket of crust pieces like shown on the web link I pasted
& we are stuffed. Total price runs right about 200 baht
Really Nice Folks, Really Clean Restaurant with a nice feel to it.

Main thing that I didn't like about the place is that they don't refrigerated their beer. On two visits it was the same each time "sorry our refrigerator broken" and the beer was so warm that even adding ice cubes (somehow they do have enough refrideration to be able to keep ice cubes in the shop) was really enough to get it into the right temp range. The pizza wasn't anything to write home about either - for instance a "pizza with sausage" there means "pizza topped with a chopped up hotdog". Overall, it's a very Thai-style Italian place.

You quoted my post so I am assuming you mean Mama Mia's?
If so I would have to disagree 100%
In my opinion
Food is Italian not Thai Style
Drinks are cold enough not to even need ice.
I was there 2 nights ago & many times before
Could there be more than 1 Mama Mia's?
As an aside I nave never in my life heard of beer so warm that ice could not cool it

No, it's the same Mama Mia, on the road to Mae Jo out past Meechock. There was another thread praising the place on ThaiVisa not long ago too. Just don't get it, but maybe it's the best available in Mae Jo.

That sounds like the same then.
I am surprised though as your experience is so opposite ours.
Where would you say does have the best pizza you have had in Chiang Mai?

If he says the Duke's, I will know that we are on the same page.
IMHO, Butter is Better also has really good pizza that reminds me a lot of home. The crust is not as good as in the USA (maybe because they do not have a real pizza oven?), but it is better than most available locally and the sauce tastes genuine. The negatives for some people are that they only sell by the slice and only have one or two toppings. Personally, I prefer either a plain cheese pizza or pepperoni and mushrooms, so I am almost covered (no mushrooms).

I will have to try BB by the slice some time.
I have started going there once in awhile for Banana Pancakes & sometimes a BLT
Both things were very good.
Posted 2013-01-17 11:08:45
A lot of things are excellent there. Have you tried the corn beef and pastrami (and brownies and cheese Danish and so on....)?
