TangoTab’s partner in supporting the Katy Trail 5K was Mimi Ahmedi, partner at Mimi’s Pizzeria. Mimi’s Pizzeria is the kind of neighborhood Italian restaurant I grew up with in the Northeast, but right here in North Texas. It is what I think of when I think about comfort food.
So, Let’s Tango…
You’re stranded on a desert island, and only have one food to live on. What would it be?
I don’t know. I grew up on pizza. I’ve lived on pizza all my life.
Scotty is ready to beam you to the best restaurant city on Earth. Where are you going?
New York City. There’s so much ethnicity there that they make all kinds of food from all over the world. My favorite part of the city is Brooklyn. That’s where I’m from. LNB’s is my favorite restaurant – they have the best Sicilian pizza. Nobody in the world can make it like them.
You suddenly have an unexpected break in your day. What are you doing?
If I have a break in my day, I’m going to play golf with friends.
You’re in the hotel bar, you turn and the most amazing person is next to you and wants to chat. Who is it?
George Bush. I think he was a great president. I just want to ask a couple questions about his presidency. People always say that he was such a bad p
resident, but I don’t think he was a bad president. Questions like – did you really want to go to war. I could talk for days about him.
People don’t know good until they have tried this at your restaurant? What is it?
Lobster Ravioli. It comes with a white wine and pink sauce so you get a flavor of Alfredo and Marinara mixed together. The lobster is stuffed in ravioli pasta with ricotta cheese and mozzarella. I have it probably three times a week, but I eat pizza everyday.
Mimi is a man after my own heart. I know where I am going to hand to get my pizza fix. Bring the family in for dinner and leave happy, full and for under $30 tonight. Click here.
