I love a good pizza, especially when it is freshly fire-oven baked to perfection. A couple of people had mentioned I should check out Pizza Union just off Spitalfields as it’s close to where I work and also super good value. Which is always handy the last week before payday… oops.
Well I am happy to report that I have found a gem of a pizza place! I really enjoyed my meal here. You walk into a large open restaurant filled with long wooden benches. The menu is hung high above the pizza ovens. Once you have made your decisions you go up to the tills and order your food and drink there. You get given a buzzer which flashes and buzzes when your food is ready, nice and easy. Oh and also prosecco is £15 a bottle. That’s right, £15! Perfect for an evening of pizza and long catch ups with a close friend. And it was a pretty good bottle too, bonus.
There are a great range of pizzas on offer and none over £7 – massive bargain! There are a couple of simple salads on the side if you wish to add some greens to you meal, we went for the Antica (rocket, tomato parmesan). We ordered two pizzas to share: Reine and Pepperoni. Both delicious with doughy bases and a good helping of meaty toppings. I hate it when places are stingy with toppings. And they’re nice and big too!
We spent a good few hours chatting away, making our way through prosecco and pizza. There’s a mix of people in here – suits from the city and east end folk. I like the vibe in here, great for a quick bite to eat or for a good chin wag. The pizzas are very good and at great prices; it’s minutes from Spitalfields market too so perfect for lunch mid-shop.
