Top Dog and Blondie's Pizza in Berkeley

Hot Link

OK it's pretty clear now that that Top Dog in Hong Kong is unrelated to the real deal in Berkeley. There's a proper selection of quality sausages available here, including this Louisiana hot link whose salt, grease, and spices delighted us, especially when wrapped in a lightly toasted bun and topped with some simple mustard and kraut. Mmm...I can see why this would be a great post-drinking snack.

Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza

We were still a bit hungry though, so we walked down to the corner of Telegraph and Durant for a slice of Blondie's. The selection was fairly limited today but I had them top this pepperoni slice with some mushrooms, which thus came out piping hot after they threw it back in the oven. The crust, while physically a bit thicker than I was thinking of, was still light and crunchy enough to gobble this up in seconds, even if I accidentally threw on a bit too much garlic powder. Yum again.

Glad to see you experienced two of Berkeley's finest. That's a double, but to get the triple, visit Fat Slice next time. Oh, I've got a Blondie's craving after reading this...
