There was never any shortage of great pizzas in London, and especially in my home spot of Whitechapel / Aldgate East. It’s a weird area, with all the commercialism creeping up on you. Pixxa Aldgate East is a more standard cafe/ sit-down type of pizza […]
Get set for Zzetta. This soul-fired pizzeria is one of the latest additions to Canning Town, offering modern pies in a casual setting. We head in to delight our tastebuds with their artisan yet street casual pizzas, as well as check out their other menu […]
I thought I was going to escape London without ever dining at one of the Italian chains. Zizzi is part of a group with over 150 restaurants across the UK and Ireland. It’s a bit hard to understand how popular and prolific these places are, I certainly had negative preconceptions of what the experience would be like. And that mostly turned out true. Read on!
I feel like I’ve come full circle. Or should that be full pizza? The first time I set foot in Pizza East in Shoreditch, I was in my first month. A shape of a wannabe food blogger, full of innocence and just trying to making […]
A new job means a new office, which means a new suburb to explore and eat my way through! My new work actually does provide lunch but that doesn’t stop up resisting the urge for one of the many eateries around Leman Street. We’ve made […]
I was very prepared to shell out a small fortune for dining in Oslo. I kept things manageable by picking up some cheap eat options along the way. For example, I started with a slice (or whole) of pizza pie from Mamma Pizza. In only six months the restaurant became one of Oslo’s top ranked restaurants. The owner, Luca Zannini, arrived in the city in 2012. He opened a pizza al taglio using knowledge from his hometown of Bologna and his passion from making people happy through pizza.
Princi in Soho always packs a crowd. There’s ample seating for them too, as well as plenty of happening Italian menu items on offer. All the food’s mostly ready and so it’s efficient to order and take your seat. As a result, there’s not much […]
New to London, new to Stoke Newington and with a lot of pizzaz. Formerly queue-centric, but much more relaxed these days. Still loud. L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele is the latest extension on the book-famous Neapolitan pie joint. A local favourite for many years in its […]
They aren’t kidding when they call it King Slice, you’ll be royally stuffed after a single serve. On Bloor Street West you’ll come across a busy pizza outlet with delightfully cheesy aromas wafting through the air. We popped in to share one of their massive slices, these are cut in half to make it a more manageable eat. All the single slice pizzas are ready to go, so it’s mainly a few moments back in the oven for rewarming before they’re in your greedy little hands.
We went with pepperoni and it’s a very good rendition, not quite fully amazing. There is a very nice touch in the brushed garlic oil on the crust, which is fantastic and makes every part of the slice enjoyable. That should be an idea worth replicating. I liked the cheese and sauce mix, and the only qualm is the pepperoni, which wasn’t the salty, crispy NY style I quite enjoy. Overall, a princely bite.
