I was out yesterday with my mum, sister and baby Poppy at the Westfield shopping centre in Hurstville. We were heading towards the fresh food hall to buy some veggies and on the way my mum said:
“Turn left here, just past that strange new Pizza in a Cone place”.
“OK”, I said. “Hang on, did you say pizza in a cone?”
I immediately swung the pram towards the shop. This, I had to see.
After a quick conversation with the friendly girl at the counter I find out it’s a Taiwanese chain and not particularly new globally, but this Hurstville branch is the first one in Sydney (update: I have since found out that this was not the first branch to open, there is also one in Parramatta).
They offer loads of different pizza flavours that are coupled in a meal deal with a chilled tea drink, which also come in many flavours. She gave us a little taste of their honeydew green tea, but it was far too sweet, so I just opted for the pizza on it’s own: a nice safe Hawaiian one.
Novelty factor aside, the pizza is not that great. The ingredients are highly processed (plastic-y cheese, low quality ham) and the pizza base cone is doughy and thick.
However, I didn’t expect much more from a fast food chain and it did what it said and tasted just like a slice of chain pizza would if it was rolled up into a cone.
Not a gourmet snack, but fun nonetheless. Find it on Level 1 next to Smokemart.
Would you brave a pizza in a cone?
