Personal pizza. I seriously haven’t had Pizza Hut pizza in over 10 years, but I had a super tight connection and I was starving! The pizza is as buttery and salty as I remember. $4.39

Dallas looks so small from the airplane! I guess not everything is BIGGER in Texas!

Pepperoni slice - Nizario's Pizza

Back in graduate school, I would frequently hit this place after a night of clubbing. These days, I’m less likely to grab pizza with the afterhours crowd – I’m getting old! I did, however, find myself at Nizario’s recently. I’m surprised I was able to take these pics, lol! As if a greasy pepperoni pizza slice isn’t enough, I’ll also cover the slice in red chili flakes, oregano, and parmesan cheese. I’m a mess!

Pepperoni pizza – Mikey’s Late Night Slice

Pepperoni pizza Mikey's Late Night Slice

So after a long night at a birthday party, Taj Mahaj bar, then Level we walk outside and find a pizza truck outside the bar, amen! I guess anything would have tasted great at that point. Although I had plenty to drink, I have to say that I wasn’t all that impressed with this pizza. I’ll pass next time. $3

Why did I go to a lunch buffet? – Fresh Choice

We must have been bored or something and that’s why we randomly went to Fresh Choice for lunch. OK now I remember! Papa Chang thought he found a coupon we could use for the buffet, but it ended up being expired. They ended up giving us a discount anyway so we paid less than $8 for the lunch buffet. Although the food wasn’t amazing, I’m not going to complain at that price. And I have to commend them because they have healthy options and they post the ingredients and calorie counts for the dishes. I’m not a big lunch buffet kinda guy (except in Vegas, omg), but it’s fun to go every once in a while.
