Last night my friend and I tried out the new Papa John’s pizza restaurant, the first of the chain to open in Chengdu. The pizza, which satisfied a craving that I’ve had for about a year and a half, was delicious. The only thing that really disappointed was the dessert, which tasted prefabricated and swam in a swirled design of Hershey’s syrup. For a pizza joint, the place is decidedly up-scale, complete with marble stairway and rather luxurious design. The food’s also rather pricy, but yummy.
