I’d like to thank Pizza Express for having us, It was a really nice evening there. The food was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed trying something sort of new (ha). I was also surprised as I hadn’t being to Pizza Express in years, It’s a lot more up market than I thought and a great standard for the price. I would definitely go again and that’s saying a lot for someone who doesn’t really go for this type of food!
Last week, I was invited along to try out the new Autumn Menu at Pizza Express at The Brindley Place branch. This will come as a shock to most people but I’m not actually a fan of Pizza but recently I’ve been all about going to new restaurants and eating different things – Plus I can’t resist Pizza Express Dough Balls. If you’ve never being to Birmingham, Brindley Place is such a lovely area by the canal but unfortunately it was like monsoon season whilst we was there. When Alex and I arrived at Pizza Express, we was quickly seated and the waiter took our drinks order. I opted for Rosé wine and Alex got a cider.
After mulling over the new Autumn menu, I obviously went for Dough Balls for my starter. They were just amazing. A new addition to the menu is the Dough Balls Formaggi which are slightly different to the original as they are baked in cheese. Alex chose these and I tried one or two and they taste really great – Quite like Cheese Twists.
For the main course I chose the Margherita pizza – I know a bit boring but it’s a classic. It was actually really great considering I don’t eat pizza.
Alex chose the Sloppy Giuseppe which was Spicy Beef, Red Onions and Peppers. There was no complaints coming from Alex as he wolfed this down in no time. He said he really enjoyed it.
Of course, when it comes to desserts I am all over that. I picked the Chocolate fudge cake and oh my it was divine. It came with a scoop of ice cream and the slice was pretty big so i was very much full up after all of this.
Alex tried out the Leggera Chocolate Cheesecake, He tried to get Vanilla Cheesecake but unfortunately it wasn’t available. The Chocolate Cheesecake was very nice though, I tried it myself and It was spot on for me. Alex thoroughly enjoyed it too.
