Dear famed Restaurant Sharky’s,
How is this Margherita? It is a cheese & tomato pizza I’m afraid.
If I had paid a good amount of money and put aside a whole afternoon, I would want the restaurant to actually put effort into making some tomato sauce. The thing about fine dining is that I don’t get it. And when it comes to ordering pizzas at fine-diningish places, be very wary. They can stray a little too far from the original term that gets printed on the menu and serve you something totally different, deconstructed-this and reinterpreted-that. But then again, where else can you order a pizza in Myanmar?
Now that is what a real Margherita looks like.
The more I look at it, the more serious I get about this: I must somehow get an oven and learn to make my own pizza. In Myanmar. It won’t be Lombardi’s but it will be a Margherita.
