Pizza Express (Revisited)

15 Jun






Ah Pizza Express. It’s been some time since I spoke of you last.  Let’s get down to the good, the bad, and the ugly shall we?

You still offer that same funky vibe which we’re all totally digging and now you’re doing monthly specials?  Yea, kudos to you my friend.  You’re IFC “popup” with it’s vegitarian friendly menu is pretty smokin’ as well.

Yet ordering your cajun special for June turns out to have been a mistake.  Infact, let’s get this one clear Hong Kong; cajun does not mean spicy!  It also does not mean spicy because we added some tabasco!  According to wikipedia cajun cuisine is, “is the style of cooking named for the French-speaking Acadian or “Cajun” immigrants deported by the British from Acadia in Canada to the Acadiana region of Louisiana, USA. It is what could be called a rustic cuisine — locally available ingredients predominate, and preparation is simple”. Yes, I’ll step off the soapbox for awhile now.

Aside from that and perhaps the shrimp being a bit old and bland, the pie was actually pretty well constructed and went great with my Peroni.

It seems to me dear Pizza Express that your mushrooms have shrunk since the last time I enjoyed the baked little morsels stuffed with cheese. Your dipping sauces for the masses of dough balls you supply on every plate on the other hand seem to have been greatly improved.  The ceasar salad with grilled chicken is also a continous crowd pleaser. 

It looks like you’ve got a lot on your plate at the moment my old friend so I’ll lend you a small piece of advice: Keep doing what your doing.  Not every idea is a great one but you’re batting a 3 out of 5 which puts you miles ahead of half your competition.  But you knew that already.

I’ll be back to keep on eatin. Maybe a cheeseburger pizza special in the upcoming months? Just an idea!
