Friday nights are usually pizza night at the Gregor household. Neither one of us really feels like going out to dinner and we sure as heck don’t feel like cooking. This past Friday, Beth, who was getting sick of the same ol’ cardboard cookie-cutter pizza, decided to do a little online research. Her search formula was simple but brilliant; “Pizza for Delivery in Mill Creek WA.” We like pizza, but on Fridays we are as lazy as sloths on ‘ludes, so delivery was a must have.
What came up was Elliott Bay Pizza & Pub. Let me say that one more time, because I’m sure I will be writing more about this place. Elliott Bay Pizza & Pub. In a world of rabbit pellet sausage and tomato sauce made in China, this place is a culinary breath of fresh air. Let’s get right to the particulars.
First off, the menu is extensive. If you can’t find a pizza or sub that is to your liking, well, you probably need to go out for sushi. I encourage you to hit up their website for all the yummy details. For now, I’ll talk about our meal.
I opted for the Combo Sub. This sub is over-flowing with roast beef, turkey, ham, provolone, lettuce, onions & tomatoes. It had what tasted like a combination of Italian dressing and a spot on perfect horseradish sauce. The deli meats were incredible. I want to be buried someday in a casket of that roast beef. Perfectly done and tasty beyond belief. Each part of that sub worked on its own. Brought together in a fresh made roll it was out of this world.
Beth went with the Italian sub. Pepperoni, salami, canadian bacon, provolone and Italian dressing. Again, it was an incredible sandwich. My axiom when trying new places is first try the old stand-bys. If the place can’t do them right, walk away. This was one of the best Italian subs I have ever tasted. Enough said.
We also ordered a pizza, just to check things out you know. I wanted to try out every single one, but we decided on one called Taste of Greece. A superb crust that was topped with salami, fresh spinach, onions, feta, sliced tomatoes & kalamata olives. Again, each ingredient was fresh and would have been wonderful on their own. Put together they became something remarkable.
It is one thing to be a kick-ass pizza place. To add delivery on top of that is… well, its pure heaven. Next time we plan on visiting the place in person though. You know, to get a feel for the place, the decor, the beer. Oh, did I forget to mention? They have craft beers on tap. I may never leave.
