There's a new love child born in Chinatown in Honolulu, Hawaii. This love child makes amazing pizza! From the owners of Encore and The Daley (Burger) meet the owner of Brick Fire Tavern (which recently moved out of Chinatown and into Kaimuki). Now Encore and The Daley are right next door to where Brick Fire Tavern once was and they all partnered to birth a new baby that serves up two distinct styles of pizza. (Located in the old Brick Fire Tavern Spot).
Meet your new friend Pizza Mamo!
Pizza Mamo is a mainly takeout spot on Hotel Street that crafts oven roasted and pipping hot fresh pizzas.
Brookyln-Style: New York style with it's thin and crispy crust the pie is 16-inches or more and emulates everything we love about those New York pizza memories. The dough is light, crisp and the pizza is massive. $21-$28
Now meet Detroit-Style: Not really deep dish but more of a pan pizza, Detroit is a hardier pizza, herb seasoned crust and oozing with more cheese than the New York as it is made in a pan and smaller in size as well. The crust is crunchy and firm while the density of the pizza is flavorful. $19-$24
Overall, we loved the Brooklyn-Style for it's size, texture and quality. The Detroit was a little on the salty and dry side, despite the pour of tomato sauce on the top.
Pizza Mamo is a delicious new addition to the Chinatown, Hawaii vibe and serves up incredible fresh pizzas.
