SquareMeal Review of
Four Hundred Rabbits Crystal Palace
This welcome addition to Crystal Palace’s Triangle offers simple things done well: sourdough pizza, craft beers, ice creams from Gelupo, and Allpress coffee. Its name references Aztec folklore (400 rabbits, apparently, were the offspring of the goddess of alcohol and the god of fermentation) and its decor reinforces the fun vibe, with girders painted jewel-green, a domed pizza oven daubed with Aztec markings, and peg boards covered in tongue-in-cheek, rabbit-themed flyers. The pizzas have crisp bases and generous toppings featuring mainly seasonal British ingredients: our favourite heaved with wafer-thin strips of courgette, feta, pine nuts, and garlic; inventive specials include cured pig’s cheek, smoked Lincolnshire Poacher cheese and sweetcorn. These go brilliantly with a citrussy Pilsner from Fourpure, one of nine craft beers provided. For dessert, build your own posh sundae – and unless you’re on a date, bag a spot at the communal table, in the thick of the action.
