Dear Soho House Group, I love you so much. Can we be friends?
Eating at your establishments have always been a pleasure. Chicken Shop, Dirty Burger and Deanstreet Townhouse. I want to be a member and after many years, I went to your pizza restaurant,Pizza East.
Based in Kentish town at Highgate Studios alongside its family friends, Chicken shop and dirty burger, Pizza East is the restaurant most easily identifiable. The large ground floor restaurant opens its doors to over 100 covers and a bar to contribute to a relaxing and welcoming establishment.
I went on a Sunday, a day when they also do Sunday Roasts which looked very good. As it was my first time, I stuck to what they do and ordered Pizza. I also asked my source of foodie knowledge (Oran) what to order and he recommended the Mac 'n' Cheese too.
Laura and I ordered Prosciutto cotto with Artichoke Pizza and a Mushroom and Gorgonzola Pizza. With these two we went for a shared side of Mac'n' Cheese. We just had to and went it arrived, we were happy with our decision.
Pizza, being the reason we went here were good. A fluffy dough which was firm but also able to flex into the pizza hold and fold into my mouth. I wanted a bit more seasoning with the base, which is something I have come to expect after Homeslice. I know it is not fair to compare.
The toppings were good and I made sure I went quite traditional and not too experimental. I went Italian and was treated to simple flavours but a generous helping. The Pizza was very filling. I obviously finished mine but Laura struggled. I think this was partly down to the lovely tasting Mac 'n' Cheese. This was gooey, hot and creamy. The cheeses used were nice and rich and 100% moreish.
A solid pizza joint in an era of growing competition. It may not be the first place I mention to people for Pizza, but by no means not the last.
I have to say I am intrigued by their Sunday lunch menu too. I'll be back for that for sure.
Thanks Pizza East and Soho HouseGroup. I look forward to my free membership.
