There are two big things happening in Beijing every summer and both are organized by The Beijinger – the Burger Cup and the Pizza Festival. As I had a craving for some fatty baked foods for a really long time, it was a no-brainer that we were going.
If Burger Cup was organised in the Beijing city center, this festival was far out in Wangjing. It was extremely hot and no shade was available. But the pizza giants were here – Baozza (Chinese style baozi with pizza-filling inside, Tube station with their huge pizzas, Detroit and many other smaller Italian restaurants. To our disappointment Marzano and Let’s Pizza did not join.
10 meter pizza was interesting having all possible fillings mixed together on one, but by the time it was cut, got cold already.
Peking Duck filling was interesting but I’d rather have it as a dish.
Apart from pizza there were other snacks too.
This looked like the best pizza ever, but was not available for sale, PICTURES ONLY…
That was my pick of the fest, the day after we went for it to the Tube Station – Greek Champion.
Another one for Tube Station fans….
The drinks were also everywhere, felt like there were more of them rather than pizzas…
And finally… this one was the second best – QMEX Pizza Taco
First of all, what is a must mention is that the lines everywhere were insane, pizza selection was not that amazing and after looking around, trying couple of pizzas we left… Next year it is a sure no, but this year 17’000 people attended the festival. It is to see once but probably it is just better to just go to any pizzeria and get one full pizza… Just what we did a day after Pizza Fest.
For that we went to Tube Station for the very cheese and unusual pizza with Feta, Mozzarella and fried sweet onion. The pizzas they serve is insane size. The medium one we ordered for two, fed us dinner and breakfast the day after. Totally worth the price, tasted great… Much better than waiting in the heat of the day!
