Ludica Pizzeria

Ludica Pizzeria & Game Room Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoA friend invited me to play some games while enjoying some pizza, so we went on a late afternoon Sunday. There were four of us and sat by the window with nice flower beds on the outside.

The other two had ordered the Italian Soda, so I thought I’d give it a try. I ordered Strawberry. You can also add Vodka for extra $. I had it with whip cream, but to my disappointment, it wasn’t that good. It seemed really watered down, and without much carbonation, it wasn’t much of a ‘soda’.


I usually never order pizza at restaurants because I’m not a bread-fan. I don’t know why, but ever since I was little, I was more of the noodle person than bread. The only time I have bread is when I eat a sandwich, or complimentary bread buns are served at higher-end restaurants. I was eyeing on the pasta, but when I looked over to the next table and saw their Hawaiin pizza, it looked pretty good. idearabbit_ludica_pizzeria3Since everyone else was getting a pizza and it was a pizzeria, I felt I needed to try something different rather than getting pasta from every restaurant. So, I went with Hawaiian $13.50.

All pizza were fairly big size. I wasn’t able to finish 2 slices, but I got through it because it was really good. The thin pizza was crispy, and the topping were fresh and flavourful. Not to mention, when you’re playing games, it kind of goes down without you knowing it!

idearabbit_ludica_pizzeria2Sheepie had the Ham and Mushroom on their special menu.

Service was great with a friendly and sometimes sarcastic character that made us laugh.

idearabbit_ludica_pizzeria1The place was clean, with the thin-crust pizza baking in their stone oven.

We played Timeline and Love Letters, both of which were new to Sheepie and I.

idearabbit_ludica_pizzeria5It’s a lot of fun, and what’s best, there’s no extra charge for playing the games. I remember some cafes in Richmond that charged you per hour for playing. But here, you can keep going and going. You’ll never get bored as there are more than 750 board and card games to play. The staff will even teach you some so you can always try out new ones.

Will definitely be back!

Joy G Cafe

Click to add a blog post for Joy G on ZomatoI hope I never return! I don’t usually start off so negative, but this place was terrible.
After our friend’s official party, some of us went to have dessert (after eating a ton of food already, lol). He took us to Leisure, but since it was packed with a bit of waiting time (close to midnight!), we headed off to Joy G instead.
The interior was ok, and the mahjong tables were interesting. There are lots of board games to play with but things seemed unorganized.

idearabbit-joeg_cafeThe server took forever to come take our orders, as some stood around doing nothing, or joining in at one of the tables of mahjong. One friend became really impatient, and wanted to complain (with attitude), but another stopped her from doing so.  idearabbit-joeg_cafe3I ordered the Passion Peach Tea (around $4) which came in a big glass mug. It was soooooooo sweet that I couldn’t drink it, leaving 90% to go to waste. Sheepie tried a bit, but even for him, he found it overly sweet. Blah…I would not be surprised becoming diabetic from a place like this!

Sheepie’s Mango slush came in a huge pitcher, which again was very sweet. I only could take a sip.
There were six of us, and 5 had beverages with a guy ordering a bowl of ramen. Instant noodles with egg and ham! It looked like a bowl from a poor student mean (sorry students! – yes, I’ve been there too…several times…lol). Anyways, it was $8.50! Outrageous! You can get an authentic, tasteful real ramen for that price. Not this garbage!
To play the boardgames, it’s $3.50/hour PER person! What a rip-off! We were there for about 1.5 hours, and just playing the GAMES came out to $31.50… $32 for playing a simple game of Tier aus Tier (kind of like Jenga). We could have bought several of the games! With 5 drinks and an instant noodle, our total came to a whopping $60+.
This cafe could have been a cool cafe. But everything is so expensive and for super poor quality, this place gets two big thumbs down!!!
