Eat Me in Dunsan dong has become so popular that we had to discover why expats in Daejeon like it so much. The reasons are simple: decent food at a decent price.
The pizza at Eat Me is good, not great, and not the best in Daejeon (Nuovo Napoli in Gungdong has that honor.) Good base, nice toppings, and you won't feel like you overspent like we did when we visited Black'smith. All the food was good yet none of it was spectacular. The really nice thing is that the bill for eating here is not spectacular either. If you want to eat some nice food and not break your wallet Eat Me is a terrific place.
You can find better pizza and pasta in town but it would be at two different places and at vastly different prices. I like this place.
Negatives are few. Drink service can be quick or "did I order?" Pasta is over sauced, but it's that way everywhere in Daejeon except for Cin-cins and the place Dr. Clark took me to dinner one night (nice dinner, nice wine. Dr. Clark RULES.) The pasta bolognese didn't have a ll the suet drained after cooking so there was a gloss of fat rolling around my mouth after a forkful. I knew exactly what was coming since I had an aunt who made her sauce that way. I don't mind it so much because the sauce reminds me of my childhood, but other people may be put off by the extra fat. Not so bad that you wouldn't need lip balm in the winter but noticeable.
