Back to La Perla after a long absence, and again: super undisappointing. In fact if there's a problem with La Perla (besides their overpriced bar drinks), it's that the Calabrese di Spilinga is a fantastic pizza, so good that even the other truly great pizzas on the menu suffer in comparison.
And thus even though you can end up with a "win-win" situation like my finocchiona/calabrese split above, you're still kind of wishing it was all 'nduja. If you're there with Mara and KK and Nick and Minnie, however, your difficult situation can be mitigated somewhat by the ordering of a sixth pizza that bats the opposite of cleanup and sends everyone scattering into the night with their needs for spicy sausage pretty much completely met.
This is an often-NSFW, mostly gluten-free kitchen notebook that also occasionally threatens to turn into something else and fails, thus remaining its same old cryptic and superficial self. These posts begin to fail to explain (start at the bottom).
