Powwow Pizza

You wouldn’t necessarily expect a Southeast Asian spot to serve pizzas, but PowWow Pizza does just that - with some pretty great results. The Angkor, with lemongrass beef, fried garlic, pickled carrots, and a creamy garlic sauce is excellent (and extremely addictive), and the Filipino with egg and longganisa is also good. But our favorite of them all is the roast duck - which has crispy-skinned duck with watercress and a plum spread instead of sauce. It’s also right next door to Ambitious Ales, a brewery where you can bring in food, so we highly recommend bringing your pizzas there and getting involved with some hefeweizens.
