Lunch at Pizza Union, Aldgate East

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

A lot has been happening in my life over the past couple of months, but the quick update is that on Monday, I started a new role based near Aldgate East. It actually is not too far from the last one, but it's in a new location, and a new location comes with a new area to explore. That brings me to my latest update. Last week, I had lunch at a pizza restaurant on Leman Street, a block away from Aldgate East station. Actually, I went twice. I went on Wednesday and then again on Friday. And, I will note that this place gets busy; it is very popular with other workers during lunch.


The restaurant is fairly large inside with rectangular tables covered in tiles or simple wood to serve as communal seating. A pizza oven is located in the back with staff creating several orders for take away and eat-in.


Oddono's ice cream, which I have tried before and which is sold from various venues in London, is also available in small cups. I bought some from Selfridge's a few years ago. I like the pistachio, but a good pistachio should have bits of nuts in it.


A good test of pizza is to try the traditional margherita (cheese and tomato). I tried one with hot peppers, bell peppers, chili flakes, and pepperoni later in the week. The pizza is good, but it does not surpass my current favourite London pizza.
