Squaremeal Review of Pizza East Kentish Town ?

Occupying the premises formerly occupied by a branch of the Grand Union bar chain, this two-pronged behemoth accommodates Pizza East as well as an offshoot of the Chicken Shop – with separate entrances for both. It’s the third branch of a group that also has outlets in Shoreditch and Notting Hill, so expect bold, rustic-industrial design and line-up of firm, chewy pizzas topped with proper ingredients: try the indulgent version with veal meatballs, prosciutto and cream or cotto (salame) with potatoes and Scamorza cheese. Elsewhere, the menu runs all the way from wild boar with polenta and salsa verde to specialities from the wood-fired oven – perhaps mac ‘n’ cheese, salt-baked salmon or chicken with prunes and almonds. Those looking for a sweet hit could plump for the salted chocolate caramel tart, while drinkers should appreciate the choice of reasonably priced Italian wines by the carafe.

What I don't expect is someone to put a porchetta on it, sliced up and laid across the pizza like some kind of upper-class kebab meat. But that's what I ate at the...

    Happy Belly :: Happy Belly: Best Eats This Week: Pork Belly & Aioli, Burrata & Tomato Bruschetta (Pizza East, London)

    Being right next to the gym, I had passed by Pizza East perhaps once a month and I had always thought of it as an upscale Pizza Express. Looking in, the decor of it is your cliched warehouse look: walls laden with red bricks and purposefully cracked white tiles; exposed pipes and bare floors; rustic wooden tables and stools. Cute, but too much of it nowadays. Then late one evening I went in with friends and was pleasantly surprised -- nothing like Pizza Express. The menu proved to be exciting, and despite being a pizza restaurant, it had lots of tempting side dish options. Pizzas were in fact not ordered, and...
