These guys take thin crust to the next level of thin,  I  mean paper thin,  if you are into thin crust Pizzas,  then you would like it.  They have an extensive range of pizza varieties, if you can think it I bet they have it,  and there is a  Special Pizza that gives you the freedom to choose 5 toppings of your choice at N5,000.00. I kinda  overwhelmed by the long list of pizza types so I decided to stick to the regular Chicken Pizza (N3,300.00).

Having had a long weekend so far, a friend invited me for after work dinner at City View Restaurant and Grill,  located at 7 Capetown Street,  beside Imperial Bakery, Wuse Zone 4,  Abuja.  This wasn’t my first time there so I  knew exactly what I wanted, so I  thought until from the corner of my eyes I saw this waiter passing by my table with a tray of Lamb Chops and Fried Rice  that looked so sumptuous, I  started wishing I  had ordered that instead….(salivating)

However,  we are more interested in the self grill section,  which as far as I’m concerned is its first of its kind in Abuja.
