Thanks to Twitter I found Vesta #FoodPornFriday

This weeks #FoodPornFriday picture comes from Vesta Pizzeria & Antipasto Bar (sorry no link, they don't seem to get social media or the modern need for a web presence).

Just about two weeks ago my wife and I were blessed with a kid free night. Our first impulse was to book a night at Jack's Gastropub. That place is awesome, one of my favourite (semi-)local places to eat. So I shouldn't have been surprised that they were booked up.

With Jack's not an option. I wasn't sure what to do. So I did what every modern social media user would do: I posted on twitter.  I asked "Have a kid free night. What should we do for dinner?"

I got a bunch of great suggestions including Twisted Apron and Motor Burger. Included with the replies was one from @PearlShandy, who suggested Vesta and noted it was a personal favourite. I've never heard of Vesta. There aren't many places in the city I haven't heard of so I did what every modern internet user would do: to the Googles! 

A short search showed me that Vesta was known as one of the best places in the city to get pizza. How the heck did I not know about some place that supposedly has the best pizza in the city? Well I couldn't let that stand. We had to check this place out.

This right here was the amazing Carne pizza I had. The perfectly cooked crust we covered in sauce, mozzarella, sopressata, panchetta and Itallian sausage. I don't know about the best pizza in the city claim. There's a ton of great pizza here, but it was very good. Will definitely be going back sometime.

Have some #FoodPorn to share? Link up with us! If you don't like the P word, we won't laugh, you can use #FoodPicFriday
