Cycle 13 – Item 310

at Numero Dos
-Seongsu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with W, ES
Numero Dos is an Italian restaurant. Specializes in Neopolitan-style pizzas and pastas. Part of the Numero family, which includes Numero Tres (see generally 11.318 Spaghetti Carbonara) and Numero Cinqo (see generally 13.084 Fish Sandwich), all located in the neighborhood.
Mascarpone is an Italian cheese. Made with the cream of cow’s milk. Soft, mild in flavor.
The mascarpone pizza was okay. The crust, cooked to blistered/charred perfection in a wood-fired oven, was chewy and delicious. The sauce was basil pesto, of which I’ve never been a big fan. The cheese kinda took me aback, as I was expecting the pull of mozzarella but it was more puddle, as if the proteins had crumbled at the molecular level. Anyway.
The food generally was great. I’ll be back to try other dishes.
