If you’re in Camden and in the market for a meal, Pizza East is just up the road in lovely Kentish Town (there are also outlets in Shoreditch and Portobello).
First things first: the pizza regularly makes it onto London hotlists; it’s fluffy and crisp in all the right places, and laden with flavour. Try the mozzarella, tomato and basil for simplicity done well. I’d keep the other options sections of the menu in the running too, though, and some dishes are done in the wood-fired oven as well. The mac ‘n’ cheese takes some beating.
I like Pizza East in the evenings, when the place is bustling and filled with locals dwarfed by the high ceilings and industrial vibe. If you get carried away and leave with some serious digestion to do, the expanse of Hampstead Heath is calling to you just a few yards away. The perfect excuse to pig out!
