On a tip from a JFC fan and fellow pizza-junkie, I checked out one of the most interesting places in Arlington. Vietalia Kitchen is a located just down the street from UTA…and while it’s convenient for the college crowd – it offerings are perfect for everyone. It’s like the swiss-army-knife of restaurants.
I can’t think of any place else where you can get traditional Vietnamese dishes….or a burger…a fruit smoothie…..chicken wings…..Pizza …or other Italian food….all under the same roof. It’s like having a food-court inside one joint. So if you find you like it, you will spend several visits discovering new favorites.
Now you might be thinking a place like that would probably do well on one type of cuisine and suffer on the other type. WRONG.
This place was packed and the great news is everyone had something different. I look around at tables with mixed dishes and orders. I started chatting-up people and I could not find anyone that didn’t happily share how much the loved whatever they ordered—and openly made suggestions on what I should try next.
So enough with the yakitty-yakk….get to the pizza…man!
Vietalia Kitchen makes an incredible pizza. I fully understand we are just in the 2nd month of 2014 but Vietalia Kitchen is already the front-runner for best pizza in Arlington. You heard it here first.
The crust is light but with the perfect balance of tender and crispy— all in the right places. The sauce is rich and full of flavor you can taste. Toppings were generous and also had great texture and flavor. It’s just so different from chain-pizza. It’s classic. It”s balanced. It’s exactly the kind of pizza you wished you could make at home. It’s the kind of pizza you will have to have at least once a week.
