Their NEO-NY Genoa Salami with their house-made chilli oil is *chef’s kiss*.

All of their pizzas can be made vegan and/or gluten-free – you can sub for their housemade vegan cheese or gluten-free crust!

This popular pizza chain from South Korea has been around for over two decades, and they’ve recently opened their first location in Canada.
