The spam you’re served every morning is tough to stomach (click to upgrade Mr. Winkie, tune your big instrument now).
But you’ll be pleased with what Pizza Lounge is dishing out: a Hawaiian pie topped with thinly sliced Spam, pineapple, macadamia nuts, and Kona coffee. The unusual plate is what happens when a tattooed former CPA gets bored with crunching numbers.
Yep, Dave Habony traded his calculator for a pizza oven and has unfurled a mind-bending carte with help from co-owner Mike Leibermann. Their delish puzzlers include sauerkraut balls (balls!) made from sausage and cabbage and the Greek-a-Lot-a-Puss pizza with lamb and tzatziki sauce.
Decor goes the spicy route with velvet leopard couches, stained glass globe lights, and a crimson red hallway dubbed “the hall of lust.”
It’s safe to say this meatrod has reached its full potential.
Pizza Lounge, 841 Exposition Avenue (214-887-6900).
