Pizza East Review
It's been a while since I want to publish this review, but as you all might have noticed I have been quite (ok, extremely) lazy and didn't do it yet. So today is the day.
Pizza East, a great pizza place that I strongly recommend!!
Great food, fresh ingredients in unusual combinations and yet with a very delicate but strong taste. The menu is not extended but if you fall in love for a couple of dishes you won't even look at the others! The pizzas have a proper thin crispy dough and the filling is just enough. The starters are simple and straight forward. The deserts are more sophisticated looking.
The space is equally amazing. Quite noisy I must say, but it has a "club" atmosphere, so fair enough. It has a bar for while you wait and a "club" downstairs too. Located in the heart of Shoreditch, in the former Tea Bar space, this restaurant offers a great option for a different dine out. It's not cheap, but it's acceptable and it is definitely worth it.
Starters - green olives with salted amonds and a portion of prosciutto
Mains - Parma ham pizza with ricotta cheese, raisins and pine-nuts
Beef lasagna (and I am not a meat fan, but it was gorgeous!)
Deserts - Salted dark chocolate and caramel tart...JUST DELICIOUS! don't be scared of the "salted chocolate", it's just a very delicate touch, and goes extremely well with the sweetness of the caramel.
Booking is essential!!
