My original plan was to “take one for the team” and be the guinea pig for all of you planning a trip to Hohokam Stadium this spring, with an emphasis on the word– pig. I was invited to an open house last night at Hohokam to show off the Cubs improved spring training digs and sample some of the ballpark’s new cuisine. My covert plan was to taste as many different types of food as possible and then report to you on my findings, a difficult job but someone needed to do it. However upon arrival and viewing the many food choices I was overwhelmed and quickly scratched my Kobayashi inspired plans.
Having dispensed with the binge eating scheme I needed to at least sample something, which turned out to be Pizzaiolo’s pepperoni and sausage pizza. In my opinion it was pretty tasty for ballpark pizza with the sausage leaning a little to the spicy side, (which I like) plenty of cheese, flavorful sauce, with a medium size/style crust. I also received glowing reports on the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich (it looked huge and delicious) and the Big Pat Burger (named after Dwight (Pat) Patterson) was reported to be a big winner by those who tried it.
