After Hours: Looking for great pizza near Heidelberg? Try Antik Lokales
EBERSTADT, Germany — So, what do you like on your pizza?
Me? I’m a pepperoni and onion kind of guy.
If that’s too boring, then I’ve got the place for you. It’s called Antik Lokales, and it boasts 145 different pizzas. That’s right, 145!
Sure, you can get pepperoni and onion, but why would you?
The menu starts with the simple pizzas — salami, Margarita, etc. Then, things get interesting.
For example, try the Zombie pizza, which includes green pepperonis and “zombiesauce.” The waitress, whose English was much better than my German, told me that zombiesauce was chili.
Or how about the Madagaskar? That comes with ham, green peppers and cocktail sauce.
Don’t like meat? Take your pick between the Sam — fresh carrots, mushrooms, garlic sauce and cheese — or the Frucht Curry — bananas, pineapples and curry.
Want more meat? Go with the Chicken Curry, which includes chicken, fresh paprika, corn, garlic sauce and curry.
Want fish? Well, you get the picture. If you want it, Antik Lokales probably has it.
Prices for this plethora of pizzas runs 5.30 euros for a salami to 7.80 euros for a Schibulski — pepperoni, gorgonzola cheese, fresh tomatoes, fresh garlic and spinach.
Located on Heidelberger Landstrasse, the restaurant doesn’t look much like a restaurant. It looks like, well, an antique shop. The inside is full of wooden tables and old wooden floors. You can belly up to the bar, or if you weave your way to the back of the restaurant, you’ll find a quaint biergarten. You can sit in the sunlight enjoying a beer or an apple wine.
If you’re not hungry for pizza, then go somewhere else! Yes, there are things on the menu besides pizzas, including spaghetti and schnitzels.
But with 145 choices of pie, do you really want the schnitzel?
