Since moving to Forest Hill I’ve been on the look out for new places to try . Walking past Sodo in Honor Oak Park it looks like such a romantic place – old bottles with candles line the window. Large wooden tables fill the restaurant with light bulbs hanging from the ceiling. It really reminded me of Neukölln, a neighbourhood in Berlin that I visited last year.
I headed here the other week for dinner and a catch up with a friend. We went on a Tuesday night and it was almost full – a testament to how good it is!
They offer a small but very good menu. There are about 4 or 5 pizzas on offer with a couple of daily specials. You can tell they really take care with their ingredients.
We decided to go half and half – we went for the margarita, which when done well is one of my favourites. The crust was crispy but the rest doughy. Sometimes the most simple foods can be the best! And we ordered one of the daily specials, the Devil: tomato, mozzarella, nduja, calabrase, onions, olives and chilli flakes. This was spicy and delicious! We ordered a simple salad on the side too, just to add a little bit of health to the meal!
Also, I should definitely point out that the house white wine is £15 a bottle, and it is a very good bottle of wine. So rare to actually get wine and not vinegar as a house white! They also have a great range of local craft beers.
We finished our meal with off with affogato. I’ve heard the tiramisu is also great so I’ll be ordering that next time.
The staff are lovely and I love the atmosphere in here. Very happy this is so close to home, I’ll definitely be becoming a regular.
