Kebab Pizza

September 16, 2010

Kebab pizza

Mouth-watering. Delicious. Tasty. Filling. Lush. Outstanding. Great. Divine. Flavourful.

This kebab pizza is from Valsta Vedugn o Kolgrill, a local restaurant and a very good one. Obviously, the pizza I ate was as close to perfect as it can be. The staff was very attentive. Nice, simple and relaxed atmosphere. Fresh bread and cabbage salad. Everything you expect from a Swedish Pizzeria. I will definitely go back and try other dishes.

The Swedish pizza is different from others. It is more succulent and have more filling than the Italian. It is thinner and not as fatty as the American. And the Dutch one I had was awful with a weird mix of different tastes that shouldn’t be combined.

Yes, the Swedish pizza is special. But they vary from place to place, of course. For me, the dough is very important. Soft, fluffy and slightly crispy. The ingredients have to be fresh and the right amount of filling. Too little, it may be dry. Too much, it may be saggy and break.

So, I was very lucky today. A bit pricey maybe compared to other places but probably worth it.

Sin Nombre

August 16, 2009

Last week at this time I sat in a red chair in a dark room. Cinema, not what I normally do on a Sunday morning. I managed to get some free preview tickets to a film. Sin Nombre. Latin American. Excited and happy to watch a foreign film. I get bored of all the English speaking sometimes.

Sin Nombre, without name in Spanish, raises the issues of immigration and gang loyalty. Two stories twist into each other.

Sayra is reunited with her father to make the trip from Central America across Mexico to the US. Along the way they meet Casper who wants to leave his gangster life behind. It’s a tragedy.

I sat there with hope, because that’s all I could do. I wish things could be different but it’s a slap in the face because they’re not. I like films like this. You learn something. It shows how tough life can be. It’s very emotional.
