Perhaps we should use phrases like "Awesome.mx"...

As gringal says, you have to grade on the curve.
I don´t understand this "back home" BS, when this is "home".

If you are referring to my statement: "Awesome"? You've been away from Canada for too long, my friend..." then I have to take issue with your comment. The only reason I can see for it is that you somehow took my sentence to suggest that I want things here to be more like where I came from.

There certainly is enough of that attitude from "certain people" on TOB, always complaining about life here, yet never leaving. And never admitting they stay because they can't afford to go "back home".

No, I was commening on how Bob's tastebuds might have changed since he moved here. For me, there is no pizza like where I come from, and I consider Mexico my "home" now. But I have two homes, and one of them has everybody and everything I grew up with: my kids, my brothers, my friends from college, and so on. And my country of birth.

Is it politically incorrect to live in Mexico and say I prefer the escargots from France? The tortiere pie from Quebec? The lobster from Nova Scotia where I lived for two years? The shrimp from Cape Hatteras? The gumbo from New Orleans? I don't think so. It doesn't mean I want to change anything about where I call home now.

I believe the guys from M&J's (ex Perry's) were trained by a woman from Dominos who joined Perry and brought Dominos dough recipes. Both Perry's and M&J don't have the consistency and delivery times anywhere close to Dominos.

For quality control purposes Domino's in the US makes it dough at a dozen of its own dough facilities and ships the dough to the stores. This sort of centralized control over core products is true for most fast food restaurants.

No idea if it is handled differently here in MX.

I understand what you are saying. I have spent a couple of years cumulative time in Ireland and there is so much I miss about the food there that I don´t even know where to start, but I am here, so that is that.  The best pizza I remember was when I worked in Chicago for about a year, nothing here even comes close, but I am here, so that is that.

Hmmmm.....Chicago deep pan pizza. The problem I find here, even with Dominos is the cheese doesn't seem to be quite right. Maybe not mozzarella or a pale imitation. Its more like manchango or chihuhua cheese.

Ah, but I get to go back every couple of years or so, and I make sure I meet my friends at my two favourite pizza places asap. I also make whoever picks me up at the airport stop at Harvey's Burgers for a double order of onion rings and a veggie burger. Heaven. So even though I am here, I am also there.

The problem here, is that the Chicago pizzerias were controlled by Al Capone, and he had "standards" that they had better live up to, even long after he was gone….. lol!

I think you are right, even the mozzarella here doesn´t come up to the Chicago taste.

And when I get to Dublin the first place I hit is Burdock´s or Beshoff´s for fish (Cod) and chips.  When I come "home", I put on my Mexican sombrero, and hopefully go to my Consuegra´s house for carne en su jugo.   lol!

Certainly was "interesting times", as it involved gang hangouts, distribution routes for dope, and "suggesting" that pizza places use their cheese (while burning down the other cheese farms). But it was a pretty big scene for La Cosa Nostra, and Big Al owned the "preferred" mozz farm.

Dayum! From Traitte to Al Capone! This could be a record! lolol

Has anyone tried the new app? I got a message from Traitte saying if I didn't download the new app I could still order using the Traitte app for a limited time. Whaa? Also noticed some restaurants missing from the line-up.

I used the new app on Saturday for Vancouver Wings with no problem (the problem came from Vancouver Wings: why not try the poutine, I thought? Now I know why: no gravy.

It seems over the weekend they added back a lot of those missing restaurants.

They appear to be "unclear on the concept"...

fyi, just back from El Torito and noticed they had the multi-pack Kirkland frozen pizzas.  Never saw it there before, but I don't delve into their frozen foods too often. Did not see a shelf price.  El Torito stepped up their game during the stay-at-home.

They also sell the Kirkland frozen pizza's individually AND the Kirkland frozen chicken burritos(?) individually as well... and they have been doing that for well over a year.
I happened to go in there nearly every Sunday after brunch at Scallions.
p.s. there is an Italian ice cream in a rectangular plastic tub that is to DIE for... my favourite is the hazelnut chocolate. ;)

Always a well-managed store. Family members take turns running the various businesses at the plaza. A shame they contracted with Cinemagic to run the theatres... when David or Oscar ran it, it was a much tighter ship. (A financial decision, of course.)
