Just a quick note on Hutong Pizza, whose actual location is in Houhai, but whose delicious duck confit pizza I ate tonight in my dorm room, an hour after calling. I ordered in perfect Chinglish, by the way, easily accomplishable by a 1st-year Chinese student!

Here you can see: yummy duck confit, baby potato slices, roasted garlic, and arugula. The main point of the pizza is the garlic; it’s soft and rich and salty and mild and perfect. The chicken and sausage pizza is also very good, but I’ve never had a bad pizza after four or so visits.

As a plus, the Houhai location is in a beautiful old house – you walk over a fishpond as you go in. What else do I need to say?
