Since joining the Los Angeles Lakers last year, Kyle Kuzma has been on the lookout for comfort food. A friend told him about the lobster pizza at Berri’s Cafe on West Third Street, and though skeptical at first, it’s now his go-to dish.
The rookie, who has been setting records for his accuracy behind the three-point line, met Eater LA senior editor Farley Elliot at Berri’s to share a pie. “The dough’s the best part for me,” says Kuzma of the thin slices at Berri’s, though after spending time in Chicago, he is also a Giordano’s fan. Kuzma noted he does not bring leftovers of the hefty pie to his teammates, saying, “I’m not sharing this.”
Check out the full video below, in which Kuzma talks about the foods he grew up with, feelings about his hometown of Flint, Michigan, and how he wants to explore the underground food scene in LA.
