I don't have a problem with coffee, I have a problem without it. And, I follow a strict diet resembling an unsupervised child at a birthday party - but I prefer the socially-accepted term "foodie". Hold on, I'm eating!! IG @perthscrazycoffeelady
Because... Size does matter! So they say down at Mack Daddy's New York Slice in Mount Lawley where they sell the "biggest and baddest pizzas in town"! One glance at the 'Big Slice', the 16 inch or the monstrous 22 inch pizza and you'll see these guys walk the walk. Mack Daddy's are all about the in-your-face attitude and boldness encapsulating everything New York – oversized comfort food, loud art work and graffiti plastered wall-to-wall, charismatic staff, killer hip hop tunes and a buzzing atmosphere.
As rich in creativity as the pizzas are flavour, cleverly named toppings include Big Tony's Pepperoni, Big Shrimpin', Livin' on the Veg and Boom, Shake, Shake, Shake the ShROOM. And as per the wildest dreams of every pizza lover, we all appreciate the fact you can order a half-and-half (with two toppings on the one pizza) for no extra cost. Guys, this is not a drill. Check out the menu for yourself here.
If I had a choice in the way I die, it will be eating these!
Attending in a party of three, as per the serving suggestion, we thought we could easily take care of a shared entree and a 22-inch dish between us. We couldn't have possibly been more wrong. I mean, we almost didn't even make it to the main course considering when we started with the Mozzarella Ella Ella sticks, we almost died and went to cheese heaven. True story. Each bite of these gloriously crumbed and deep fried chunks of cheese had us stretching out to arm's length like we were waving down instructions to a landing plane. Words cannot describe the intensity of the argument that ensued over how the 5 pieces would be divided between 3 people, it was a real heart breaker.
It was hard to capture the size of this, but it dominated a 4-seater table!
Our main order was one half Buffalo Chicken with buffalo chicken (self-evident), grande mozzarella and blue cheese and one half Bronx Sausage with Italian sausage, mamma's meatballs, onion, chilli, grande mozzarella and tomato sauce. I can honestly say this was the biggest pizza I had ever seen with my own two eyes. Needless to say, a fair portion came home with me purely because of how huge it was.
Bigger than a dinner plate, and require two hands to hold. I almost broke out the knife and fork to tackle this beast!
I was disappointed to miss out on the New York sodas and the ravishing desserts such as a New York Cheese Cake and a Peanut Butter Brownie, but with my pants already undone after main course, it would have come down to selling off a kidney just to make room in my torso as a sizeable food baby had since taken up residence. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't briefly consider it, though. I'll be sure to pace myself next time as the sweets were raved about and looked great.
The wait times to be seated and to be served were a little lengthy but totally understandable considering I attended on a Friday night and the place was packed to capacity from the time I arrived, to what I can only presume to be long after leaving as there was a considerable line.
Mack Daddy's operate on a walk-in basis (only taking bookings for parties of 6 or more) and it's obvious this is due to the hordes of people and the extremely high demand for the goods! Plus they are BYO, so it's definitely worth making a night of it!
