Pizza is probably one of my favourite things to eat, like ever!
Spread across two floors of a beautifully restored rustic Georgian pub, in the middle of Portobello Road, you’ll find Pizza East. I was invited along to try all they had to offer one lovely Sunday afternoon.
The upstairs is a relaxed, well-lit dining room with a terrace.
With a very cool 1920s-esque bar.
We took our seats and got right down to business!
Green juice, Negroni and burrata with heritage tomatoes and basil to start off! Incredibly creamy burrata paired with fresh and tangy tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil. Amazing.
I wandered downstairs while waiting for the mains to arrive and found a buzzing open kitchen with freshly prepared grilled meats and vegetables on display along with this chic treasure (Bloody Mary) chest.
Onto the mains! A refreshing plate of peach, hazelnuts, buffalo mozzarella and honey salad.
A side of sweet potato fries (obviously!).
The most incredible mac n cheese. Rich, creamy and bubbling away in its cheesy goodness.
And of course, salami piccante, buffalo mozzarella and poponcini pizza. Fresh from the oven!
But that didn’t last for long!
I basically devoured everything in my sight!
And still managed to leave some room for dessert!
Chocolate, salted caramel and nut brittle tart. The richest layer of smooth chocolate on a crunchy bed of nut brittle infused with salted caramel. This was absolutely incredible!
Blueberry sorbet, light and refreshing to balance the rich chocolate tart.
Pizza East has a relaxed yet buzzing atmosphere, perfect for a chilled Sunday lunch.
