The last few days have been interesting to say the least. I’ve managed to sprain my ankle and crack a bone in my foot. Sounds lovely, right? This was all before my trip to Disneyland Paris which I’ve just arrived back from. It was such a magical trip but quite interesting given that I could barely walk. I’ll be posting about it loads over the next couple of weeks. I’m spending the next couple of days resting up and recovering, it’s a good chance to get caught up with my blogpost for the next week. I’ve still got so many posts from my trip to Brighton and Windsor to write up. In Brighton, I finally got to experience Franco Manca Sourdough Pizzas!
Franco Manca now has two restaurants in Brighton along with many others in the South of England. The one in Brighton Marina only opened a couple of weeks ago and I was invited down to give it a try. I was so unbelievably excited to finally try Franco Manca after hearing so many people rave about it. I think I may have mentioned it before but I recently bought a “Where to eat Pizza” book which features restaurants around the world. I’m not even kidding that it is my life mission to visit all of them, all 585 pages of pizza which includes Franco Manca.
The restaurant is located in the Marina which offers lovely views over the waterfront and was also pretty close to where we were Glamping at the Caravan and Motorhome Club site. Once we got seated we ordered our drinks. I went for the organic lemonade and my Mum got the No Logo craft lager.
Their aim is to keep everything simple and authentic which sounded good for me. My Mum and I both went for the classic tomato, mozzarella and basil pizzas. Made with slow rising sourdough in a wood burn evening, I knew we were in for a treat. I was basically drooling at everyone’s pizzas around us and ours did not disappoint. The sourdough base was just out of this world making it one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had.
Although, we were stuffed after the most amazing pizza, we opted to share the chocolate and hazelnut cake which was served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I’m not one to ever turn down chocolate cake so I couldn’t resist. I also just wanted to mention that the staff were so lovely and the service was excellent.
I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get my butt to Franco Manca. I’m now ready to start a petition to bring Franco Manca’s up north. For now, I’ll certainly be heading there whenever I’m visiting London. I would thoroughly recommend a visit if you are also on a quest for the most delicious slices of heaven.
Have you been to Franco Manca’s before?
