A Slice of New York Pizza – Portland, OR

Man, I hate it when there is something new and I’ve missed it. Especially if it is “8 months new!” Apparently, when I wasn’t looking, a new pizzeria opened inside one of my neighborhood grocery stores, the Thriftway in SW Portland.

Called “A Slice of New York,” that’s exactly what they offer, whole pies, slices, NY style subs, calzones and the like.

I had wandered in to Thriftway to get some bagels for Sunday morning, not one of my usual stops, but Noah’s had exactly 3,255,123 people in line. (Ok, Noah’s is not one of my usual stops, either).

So I decided to grab a slice, the choices were cheese or pepperoni with pepperocini, the latter not being my favorite, I went with the plain old cheese slice. It was $2.50, a far better price than many slices around town lately, and I told them they could forgo a reheat.

Wrapped in foil, I took it to a table, and took a pic, then another showing the ‘hang,’ and another to show whether or not you could roll it. (YES!).

Examined the slight pools of cheese grease on top, punched at the crust with my finger, noted the spring, and took a bite.

OMG, I’m at Original Ray’s! (Or anyplace in NY with “Ray” in the name).This is about as good a NY slice as one can find here in Plaid Town, Oregon.The prices for whole pies are spendy (see menus below).

A Slice of New York Pizza gets 6 out of 8 slices.  You can follow me on Twitter @burgerdogboy

    Dude you have been out West far too long… First up There is no such thing as a NYC Sub Subs do not exist in NY only heros. Secondly this does not look like a nYC slice of Pizza especially Rays from 11St. (the original not to be mistaken with the chain original Rays) Rays has about a half a lb too much cheese floating on top and this does not even come close….. Time to visit the city fella!

    He actually called them Hoagie’s but I edited it to be at least a sub! But I completely agree with you about the Hero thing. So odd to live down in FLA and not use the word Meatball Hero.

    I love Mozza, but that’s for a night out. Abbot’s is my favorite local spot where you can just run in and grab a slice. It’s not a sit-down restaurant.
