Situated just 2 blocks from the Malecon de la Marina in Miraflores is Pizza Rock, the rock themed pizza restaurant with a dog-friendly area for diners that bring their dog.
I was planning to order a pizza to go since I was walking my dog when I passed by the restaurant, but they welcomed us both to the dog-friendly zone: a covered patio with a pop art decor. They even had dog food on hand to feed the pets that come into the restaurant – a nice touch.
Their menu consists of burgers, salads, and pizzas. I ordered the Che Pizza (36 soles) – red and orange peppers, grilled chorizo, onion, chimichurri.
When it arrived I was surprised by the shape of the thin crust pizza, which was guitar pick shaped. A great idea for a rock themed pizza place.
The pizza was delicious and filling, with lots of big chunks of grilled chorizo and vegetables. The chimichurri was drizzled over the cooked pizza prior to plating, and added a nice splash of colour and flavour.
It was my first time trying chimichurri on a pizza, but it won’t be my last.
The music was pretty much rock, and while I was there I heard Green Day, AC/DC, and oddly enough Britney Spears (Oops I Did It Again).
Pizza Rock is worth checking out if you’re in Miraflores and craving a pizza or burger; and if you happen to find yourself getting hangry on an extended dog walk along the Malecon de la Marina, your four-legged dining companion is certainly welcome.
