New Yorkers the world over felt a sizeable disturbance at the sudden emergence of The World Is Flat. Meanwhile, flat-earthers – those who swear by the long-held assumption that the world is flat even though it’s been debunked to obscurity – rejoiced in a circle jerk of “I told you so” camaraderie. Okay, that didn’t happen(probably). The expression “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” takes a backseat, sidled up fittingly close to the trash chute, to the innovative rebranding of the pizza form: The World Is Flat parts ways with humility while giving the finger to only-cheese-on-pizza loyalists(and needless to say, NO pineapple) to render pizza aesthetics in their vision – the phone equivalent of Apple breaking the news of headphone jackless iPhone. And like the now jackless existence to which we’ve as a collective subscribe to, the pizza landscape on this side of KL has since never been the same. And we’re better for it.
There are a lot of things that don’t fly at The World Is Flat. Factory churned generic thoughts? Nope. Following the leader? Negative. Generic pizza without a squiggle of ingenuity? F*$% you. As if the artistic graffiti and the broadly out of control placement of its layout aren’t a telltale sign that you gotta be “this cool” to enter, allow me the privilege: “if you ain’t outta control, you ain’t in control…so check yourself before you wreck yourself(Alright, sorry).

What’s In It For Me?
The World Is Flat, as evidenced by its embrace of a wholly controversial topic, if to be understood as more than an establishment churning out beautiful canvasses of otherworldy pizzas and intergalactic deli sandwiches, is a modern day’s embrace of finding one’s own identity, a teenager in the throes of puberty seeking to distill the unknowns, with the hopes of arriving to the core cheesy center. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous – OR daring/ballsy – I’d recommend taking a coma-soaked dive into every available item on the menu. Sure, you’re wallets gonna take a beating, but for the sake of FOMO and YOLO, let’s venture out from just ordering the Pastrami Melt or The Fat Samurai and live a little.
Just as a reminder: Bring your best IDGAF attitude and leave your worries at the door.
