Imagine my surprise and delight when last week we sat down at Mothers Pizza for a good old cheesy carb feed, and I saw garlic fingers on the menu! My guilty junk food weakness. My shameful delivery order after a late night out. Garlic fingers.
I hadn’t been to Mothers in a while, but typically I’ve had good experiences there. I like their hearty pizzas with lots of toppings (Canadian style) and the fact that they use so many local suppliers. Their pizzas are very cheesy, and the service is always super friendly. Also, I like the small wine list.
At Mothers, they’re calling them “garlies,” and of course we had to try them. We ordered the small (9-inch) to start, which was served with house-made marinara sauce for dipping. The garlies were insanely cheesy, to the point of greasy, in the best possible way (they’re supposed to be, in my opinion). I’ve never met a garlic finger I didn’t like. If you’re looking for a critique though, I’d say pump up the garlic a notch, and also experiment with donair sauce. The marinara was nice, but I love the sweetness of the traditional donair sauce with my garlic fingers. (Call me old-fashioned!)
After devouring the garlies, I could barely put a dent in my vegetarian pizza. It was absolutely loaded with various seasonal veggies, plus I added anchovies. The pile of spinach on top was a little hard to navigate. The leftovers were awesome, though.
On other trips to Mothers, I’ve very much enjoyed both the White Pizza, and The Agricola. Check out their menu here.
Did you know in other parts of Canada, garlic fingers and donair sauce aren’t a thing? Tell me: What are your favourite garlic fingers in HRM?
