Last week, my parents and I took a spontaneous trip to Las Vegas to show family visiting from the Philippines around. Mind you, this was a completely innocent trip.
That is, until I had an insane craving for Secret Pizza.
Located inside The Cosmopolitan hotel, Secret Pizza is a hole-in-the-wall establishment that sells New York-style pizza.
However, the establishment doesn’t sound too significant on paper. But there’s one thing that sets this place apart from other local pizza joints: its secrecy. Writing about it alone makes me feel like I’m breaking some foodie code.
The hotel makes no mention of Secret Pizza. The establishment is placed at the end of a retro-decorated hallway completely hidden. There are no signs pointing to the establishment and no information on their directory.
Secret Pizza is basically the hotel’s hidden secret. How awesome is that?
In fact, to add on to the restaurant’s secrecy, the pizza joint has no official name. Locals referred to it simply as the secret pizza place, which spawned the Secret Pizza name.
But it’s not much of secret anymore.
The establishment is popular among the late night crowd. Starting at midnight, club-goers line up along the hallway for a slice of pizza.
Who wouldn’t want pizza after a night out?
Their pizza is the epitome of a true late night snack (if you can even call it a snack.) Each pie is served straight out of the oven, and shares the same characteristics as a cartoon pizza. Cheesy, gooey, crispy and creamy ” is it even possible to love a pizza so much?
Apparently it is.
Secret Pizza has almost 2,000 reviews on Yelp with a solid 4-star rating. The establishment has generally positive reviews. One reviewer called it a “darling little gem.” Another stated the pizza as the “pizza of my dreams.” Yes, the love for pizza is real.
A hole-in-the-wall establishment, late night crowds and insanely cheesy food ” that’s the perfect concoction for foodies.
Secret Pizza, your secret is safe with me.
