East Side Pizzeria

Flora’s East Side Pizza was the first restaurant write-up posted on this website. It holds a dear place in my heart, as you can imagine. I’ve been eating from Flora’s or East Side Pizza as it’s now known since the 1980s.

The garlic rolls are always a good starter, and while the burger is what I’ll deem pretty good for a pizza place, the meatball sub is superior in every way. I’m pretty sure I don’t need to suggest grabbing a pizza, ad if you do, I’m partial to the ground beer and pepperoni combo.

On a recent visit to East Size Pizza, I stopped in for a burger and a meatball parmesan hero. They were exactly as I remembered them. The two sandwiches that ultimately kickstarted my life as Burger Beast brought me back to that fateful day in September 2008. A day that changed my life forever.

September 10th, 2008Marcela and I decided to go to Flora’s East Side Pizza (731 NE 79th St, Miami) near North Miami Beach or whatever you call that area. I gotta tell you if you have a fear of getting shot, I have no doubt that the First 48 has made at least one stop there. That fact has nothing to do with the food. I found the staff to be friendly, and instead of ordering the Meatball Sub as suggested to me, I went ahead and got their Swiss Alps Burger.

The Swiss Alps is Swiss cheese, sautéed mushrooms, bacon & sautéed onions on their fresh ground 1lb. burger patty. I give them points for having fresh ground beef at a pizza joint. The burger was good, nothing out of this world, but I found the toppings to taste better than the patty itself. I don’t get my hopes too high up at pizzerias, but this was somewhat of a pleasant surprise. Do try the pizza; it’s pretty good.

Oh yeah, and to prove what a knucklehead I am, I walked right in front of a giant fan when I went to throw away my garbage. It caused it to fly right into the face of one of the employees; needless to say, I embarrassed to turn around, but I did apologize.

Also, I don’t want to hear about my photo being blurry; I’m not a photographer. Till next bun, wow yeah, that was horrible. Alright later.
