Right now Lazerpig is my favorite pizza parlour. I shout it from the rooftops and scream it from hot air balloons ALL THE TIME. When someone asks me what my favorite restaurant is at the moment, I pick up a beat and drop some rhymes about Lazerpig.
It’s a love affair.
This Fitzroy Must-Eat (there’s a lot of those but I mean it) is the perfect place. It boasts a full bar at the front that centers around a fireplace and burning candles by day; disco balls, strobe lights and catchy music by night. You can reserve a table for the dining area at the back which offers a cool, modern-age romantic atmosphere that feels fancier than usual but is still warm, comfortable and fun. To add to that, there’s some outdoor seating at the front so we can all enjoy beers and pizza and dancing on balmy Summer nights – should the warm weather ever come.
But enough with the pizza talk because – while the pizza is ridiculously good – you must try the cheeseburger!
Lazerpig doesn’t make a big fuss about the cheeseburger. It’s listed at the bottom of the menu with not much to accompany it. But it is there. And you must try it. It’s heaven! We’ve come back for it time and time again. You can get it on it’s own for $9 or with chips $11. You can also drench the chips their beautiful chilli oil and, possibly, have the best time ever.
Order a beer while you’re at it and stay a while! It’s going to be so much fun! Don’t be surprised if you catch yourself doing the shimmy with your cheeseburger in hand – it’s just a knee-jerk reaction from the happiness you’ll be experiencing.
