After 3 weeks of Living in America we can finally say that we are really starting to feel like at home here in New Paltz. We have all become friends, collected fun stories from our trips and nights out to tell people back home, but we are also developing our everyday habits especially when it comes to food. It is safe to say that Spring 2013 IIB students are definitely embracing the food culture and just might gain a few pounds during our stay 🙂 Personally when it comes to cooking I get really lazy, so the fact that here at Super 8 there isn’t a real kitchen has probably not influenced much my choice of diet. We all know this is the true food story of every student on the planet, so as protocol instead of trying to eat healthy I am gladly feeding on big portions of my beloved pizza served by “Mummy take-out”. As I am now becoming an expert on New Paltz pizza I thought I would share some of my insights with anyone interested:
- Pasquale’s Pizza & Restaurant: I’m guessing these guys really love us because at this rate thanks to our orders they’ll shortly be able to take a vacation to the Caribbean 🙂 Comments aside, I really like their food generally speaking. There is a lot to choose from and they are pretty fast at delivery. Personally I really like the fact that they have a lot of available sizes when it comes to pizza, so If I’m not that hungry I don’t have to waste food.
- Rino’s Pizza: I think that their pizza is probably the closest to the Italian style one because it’s lighter: less thick and charged of ingredients. Thumbs up!
- Rocco’s Pizzeria: We tried their pizza the first night here in New Paltz. It was really good, tasty and rich. I loved it but I would recommend to be really hungry if eating an entire pizza alone..after one slice I was totally full!
So as for food I have back home I can’t really complain since there are 3 valid pizzerias to choose from. Now to my next task: find good espresso, the real Italian “must have” 😉
