In most cases, I agree witht the saying 'you get what you pay for.' However, in the case of Bimbo Deluxe, I must disagree. $4 gets you a plate sized pizza, topped with various 'gourmet' toppings. Think about the other meals you can get for $4. A McDonalds happy meal, a toasted cheese sandwich or maybe some minimum chips.
Between 7pm - 11pm Sunday to Thursday Bimbo deluxe will serve you some of the best thin crusted pizza in town. It may not be quite as good as I Carusi, but it's up there and for $4, you can't complain!
There's about 15 different pizzas available, with various cheeses like Gorgonzola, Mozzarella, Soy Cheese and even Taleggio (beware the Taleggio gives you strange dreams- it's not a myth! If you don't believe it, try it for yourself)
The pizza has a thin base, not perfectly round, slightly crunchy in places and soft in others. It looks truly rustic and is a pleasure to eat.
On this occasion we had the Lamb with spices, rocket and lemon. Very tasty - almost like a open Souvlaki - Italian Style. The rocket and lemon cuts through the meatiness of the lamb and makes for a delicious mouthful.
We also got the Organico Pizza. This is topped with pine nuts, pumpkin, soy cheese and garlic. I also requested that pesto be drizzled on the top as I have previously found that even though the pizza is tasty, it's missing something. The pesto is what it's missing - I highly recommend getting the pesto.
When visiting Bimbo, I recommend getting there at least 20 - 30 mins before the start of 'pizza happy hours.' If you're late, you'll be waiting a while for a seat. Even a few minutes late could mean you miss out on a seat in the dining area and have to eat amongst the smokers and the doof doof in the nightclub room.
Bimbo's also have dessert pizzas which are fantastic! There's a mixed berry version, banana one and there's also a chocolate pizza too.... $4 as well!
