After a week away from the office, it was time to have a team lunch! As always, we wanted to try something different, something Baltimore! My colleague, Katie, and I ended up having lunch at Kyro PIzza in Mt. Vernon. We had lunch around 2, so we avoided the lunch rush completely.
Since it was rather late, there wasn’t anyone else in the restaurant but us. There was a plethora of items on the menu to choose from, that’s for sure! Salads, appetizers, sandwiches, calzones, and of course Pizzas! The cuisine has a lot of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern influence to it, which I absolutely love! I ended up selecting the Chicken Falafel Pita. The sandwich comes with either a small house salad or side of fries. I went the healthy route and chose the house salad with raspberry dressing.
The description on the menu sounded a lot better than what I actually received. The food didn’t necessarily taste bad, but it didn’t taste “Oh my goodness, gimme more!” either. The food was missing that kick, some seasoning or spice, to really bring it on home. Conceptually, the dishes sound great, however the execution isn’t the best. (Haha, I realized I sound like Tom Collichio on Top Chef!)
Next time I’m in the Mt. Vernon area looking for a good bite to eat, I’d think twice about eating here….I’d rather try all the other great options Mt. Vernon has to offer. On my way out, I noticed a painting on the wall with a woman eating a pizza and smiling. When I saw that, all I could think to myself was, too bad I don’t have that same expression!
This is Ankur…
