Bucket List itme #347 – Eat @ Sally’s Apizza
New Haven, Connecticut
After a long day of classes at Yale University, what does a Yale student do to relax? Stand in line for some of the most delicious pizzas in the world, that’s what!
Ok, I realize waiting in line for anything isn’t relaxing, but once you’re inside it’s absolutely worth the wait.
When I first walked up to Sally’s Apizza, I couldn’t help but feel excited. The line to get inside was insane and it wasn’t even the dinner hour yet. It was in those hours between lunch and dinner when no one typically eats, yet the line was down the block. That’s when I knew this place just had to be amazing. I was buzzing waiting for this bucket listed pizza!
While waiting in line, a man popped behind me and was extra chatty. He told me he drove over an hour just to eat this pizza. Wow! Ok, this is going to be groundbreaking.
As time wore on, I started to question everything. It had been an hour and I was still sitting in line. Dave was bored to tears and grumpy and I’d read quite a bit of my book. Are we sure this is worth it? Our tummies growled in anguish. We’d planned this all wrong. We should have eaten more than donuts for lunch.
By the time we crossed the threshold we had been in line for roughly an hour and a half. We knew it was worth it before we had even ordered! Glancing around we could see people had ordered enormous pizzas even when it was only two people. OMG, they were thinking leftovers! Ok, I see you, Sally’s Apizza.
The wait for our pizza felt like forever. We were so hungry and excited. It was worth every minute though because wow! Wow wow wow! I mean, if this is New Haven pizza I may just declare it the pizza capital of the US. They did this thing where the crust was a bit burnt. Initially I was very unsure, but it really brought something to the flavor. Oh god, and the flavor of their tomato sauce blew my mind. Damn. And it was so thin and beautiful and the perfect flop! I can’t say enough good things. One of the best pizzas of my life. I give it a 9.5/10. Perfecto!
