I’ve eyed this place a while now, never had a chance to go in.
The Bauer Kitchen is a restaurant near Uptown Waterloo, hidden behind the almighty Vincenzo’s, the restaurant has its own little courtyard, and a very lovely patio where we had situated ourselves.
I ordered a soup, which was delicious, and Paige ordered a beet salad, which was horrible.
I mean I don’t know why she ordered a beet salad. Beets in general really aren’t very delicious, and when put into a salad form (read: uncooked), it retains this dirt taste. Some people might like it, Paige certainly didn’t. She didn’t like my soup either, because it was a potato and leek soup: she hates onions and anything onion tasting. Anyways, going along with the orders, we shared a pizza.
We shared a beautiful pizza.
Where to start on the pizza. The crust was perfect, it was fluffy, and perfectly charred; the cheese was splendid, I always loved a good fontina; finally, the pulled ham was just the right touch to spice up the whole thing. Paige also loved it, since I had told them to hold the leek (ha!).
Paige got some pretty good shots of her new nail polish, but I had a hard time trying to explain the concept of prime lenses to her, and she didn’t seem to understand why her kit zoom lens can’t get the same depth-of-field as a Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM (otherwise known as the plastic fantastic).
Will come again for the pizza, will not come again for the salad.
