This video is another #2020catchup from September.
I don't remember what prompted us to try Parti Pizza, but we gave it a whirl. I have yet to find a local pizza place in Ottawa that makes a pizza I really like, so it was worth a shot. Who doesn't love a part(i) ?

I didn't watch the 2021 Super Bowl, but all I saw after on social media was The Weekend's meme worthy performance - so here are my contributions:
I can't feel my face when I eat you ...
Their deal was "Pick Six Touchdown Special" which was pick any 6 for $85 + tax. You could get the Pick Three Field Ball Special for $45 + tax, but there were 3 of us and we wanted a bit of a spread, not to last but for gluttony reasons.
I called on Friday just to check on the rules and it was simple: call on Sunday, order, call when you arrive and they will call you to come in to pick up. I asked if I could order Saturday, which they said for sure, but then we forgot to call Saturday to late.
I arrived for pick up a bit early. They were having a few delays so they offered me a free pop (but I declined). When it was ready, they gave me a free order of Vegan Nachos for having to wait! The gesture was super nice, but I had made Trash Can Nachos Saturday and we already had leftovers. Oh well.
Here the food breakdown:
- 1/2 Rack RIBS & FRIES x2: Saucey Meaty ribs - the family thought they were ok, but they are not huge fan of American style bbq sauced ribs, so I didn't put much stock in that opinion. The fries are thin and limp, but I like that style once and a while
- 3 Beef Tacos: Big hit! Softshelled with a mix of meats and some fresh veggies on top with like a ranch-like dressing. Very beefy & flavourfull.
- Poutine: giant delicious mess of fries, gravy and cheese curds. The curds were all melted by the time I got home, but this was exactly what I was looking for in a poutine today!
- Suicide Wings: The container said "Plain" so I was worried they forgot my side of suicide sauce, but it was in there :) But no fries :( Wings were very crispy - a little dried out but it was a long drive home. The homemade suicide was really good - cayenne based with a nice zing to it!
- Oreo Hushpuppies: There were three containers of 5 each. These were AH-MAZING! By a stunning amount of will power I only at 2, but these were just awesome.
Overall, the food was good, service was friendly, and it was good to support a local business!

Air fry is a type of fried, right? These dry rubbed wings did ok in the airfryer but just can't seem to get them crunchy crispy as I would like.#lordofthewingsblog #lordofthewings#wings #chickenwings #airfryerwings pic.twitter.com/s0AY5TgOKv

3) Pizza for Dinner
Fast forward a week or so and the wife and I decided to have a Friday night take-out from a local eatery. It didn't take long for us to decide to try Chili Craft's Pizza. I was going to pick it up from work, so I ordered online. We picked two types, the Tandoori Chicken Pizza, and the Desi Tadka - asking for no cilantro on both (as I hate cilantro). Just to change things up, we decided to call Little India Cafe next door for some pakoras and some kebabs to bulk up the meal.
When I called Little India, I could tell they were busy by the noise behind the phone. The girl taking the order said it would be 50 minutes! I hesitated and said no thanks, because the pizza would be ready in 15 minutes and 50 minutes for deep fried balls seemed too long. She asked how long did I want them and I said 10-15 minutes? She checked with the kitchen and said 15-20 minutes. I went, and the line-up for people getting Indian food was big! This place was crazy busy. I finally got inside for the take-out and saw menus for Chili Craft Pizza at the pick-up window. I asked about it and one of the girls working told me the two businesses are connected. I told her I was getting pizza from them and her eyes lit up - what pizza she asked. I told her Tandoori & Desi and she was like "I'm eating the Desi Tadka right now! It's soooo goood!" and she showed me here pizza. After I got my order, I grabbed the pizzas from Chili Craft and headed home.
The pizza's were so good! Unlike anything I have ever had before. They looked like pieces of art. It smelled so good. It's a thin crust pizza that is completely covered in toppings. The topping are diced fine, but you get everything in every bite. The flavours on both pizzas were so fresh and rich. Highly recommend.
