Shoutout to the DRP

Shoutout to the DRP


Back with another food post for yooouuuuu!

This Saturday I checked out a new place that came highly recommended by a coworker called DRP (Del Ray Pizzeria),  in a little area within Alexandria, VA called Del Ray.

First, I’d just like to say that I was very productive this past Saturday ( I hate”adulting” (as in being a real grown up) but when I do, I gotta admit I feel on top of things in my life.)  Anyways, after getting an oil change, I was hungry of course, and the day was still young, so in my car I drove until a nudge came about to check out Del Ray. 

I put the address in my GPS (2218 Mt. Vernon Ave, Alexandria, VA.) and off I went. 

As I turned down E. Custis Street, I kinda felt like ohhh no, my GPS [dun] set me up again. Ugh.

But I was kinda OK with that because the neighborhood was cute.

Finally I got to the last stop sign, made a right, and *queue haaaaaaaaaaaaa (in my angelic choir voice*   DELLLLL RAYYYYY! 

Since Saturday was such a nice day, I walked the entire strip to see what else was there before going to DRP. My coworker also told me about: the two other restaurants, kaiZen and Stomping Ground, but there were soo many other cute places. 

Enters DRP.

I sat at the bar per usual when it’s just  me, ’cause, that’s just what I do. I ordered calamari and a Coke. And I was full. But I couldn’t leave a pizza place without trying the pizza so – I ordered a pie to go to share with the ‘rents. 

I ordered an, “On The Bright Side,” white pizza with pan crust.

My parents LOVED it!!!  The ONLY thing I would change for next time is getting thin crust. The pan was a little too thick for me but the flavors were delish! 

After words I debated between grabbing an iced coffee from St. Elmo’s Coffee Bar right across the street or a frozen custard from The Dairy Godmother also nearby.

If you haven’t already gathered, ice cream always wins. 

And that was about it for my Saturdayyyy.

Snapped some pics for ya.
