It has been a while since last time I went away from adelaide city center and on an unusual cool Sunday, T and I decided to go to Hahndorf. Just to have something to eat.
Nested in a beautiful German architecture on 94 Main Street is the so-called Hahndorf Pizza House. Being the home of The Olive Grove under LLOYD Bros Wine and Olive for such a long time, the site has already been quite famous among local wine lovers and interstate travellers. I used to love white wines from LLOYD Bros and when seeing this pizza business open early last year, I highly expected that it can build up the same reputation as the previous business.
Promoted to be an authentic Italian and Mediterranean pizza, the pizza house was operated as a family business. The outside was pretty with big red umbrellas and red table sets. However, once you go inside, it is very dark with bits of everything at each bench and I was totally turned down by the settings. I asked the manager for their house specialty and was suggested to try their “Chef Special” with ham, bacon, beef, salami and lots of BBQ sauces.
However, the turn-out of this pizza is very very disappointing. This Chef Special Pizza 12″ costs $21.00 which is the highest among all of their pizzas. Salty, salty, very SALTY!!! This pizza is just salty without any other taste that I can think of. Oh, right, it tastes like domino’s meat lover pizza only with more meats and BBQ sauces. Occasionally, you can even smell an uncooked pork smell which I believe is from the hams. The worst thing is 10mins after had the pizza, I started vomiting and it was all thrown up.One last thing, seriously, personally I don’t like the all-red settings. It made me faint.
Very bad experience here, worst pizza ever, not recommended!
