  1. A complete , scrumptious 5 course meal
  2. Reduced pricing * Happy Me*. Making it very economical for its high quality food.
  3. Best Warm Berry Crumble in the city. ( You’ll know it only when you taste it ) A must must must try !
  4. Present in 5 different locations in the city , so you can not miss out.
  5. Wood Fired Pizzas *Drools*

So , I recently had a chance to review the Festive Menu. I headed to the Veera Desai , Andheri outlet post work. Interesting thing about Pizza Express is all their outlets have unique décor. So each time it’s a new experience at each of those.

Last week , I was presented with the New Festive Menu which came as quite a surprise as the pricing has been reduced to make it more economical. I interacted with the person waiting our table and he told us what works from it.

From Soups Section we tasted both – Cream of Mushroom and Pumpkin Soup. Really rich , thick and yumm. Pumpkin had the smoky hint.

While Chicken Wings seemed super tempting I opted for the Doughballs with Spinach and Artichoke Dip. I’m a sucker for their dough-balls. The dip introduced as a part of new menu is worth the try. Doughballs are soft and fluffy as usual and the creamy dip makes a good accompaniment for a pair of Sangrias. All you have to do is have it while it is hot 😉

We then ordered our Pizza which was Calabrese Verde a vegetarian Pizza. A unique Rectangular Pizza which has my favourite toppings – Mozzerella Cheese , Char Grilled Peppers , Olives , Basil & Jalepenos. A very very thin base of these pizzas make them super light hence don’t make you feel saturated.

Penne on Cilantro is their Indianized Pasta and I have absolutely loved it. Very simple ingredients such as Beans , Cocktail Onions , Cherry Tomatoes and creamy sauce make it a great dish. Cocktail Onions an unusual ingredients for a Pasta add the quirk to the dish and are very sharp & tangy. I totally recommend this.

To Finish our meal I had a choice between their legendary Cheesecakes , Brownie and Berry Crumble. I am so glad I chose the Warm Berry Crumble. I haven’t stopped talking about it ever since. This comes in a  big plate who’s base is filled with a sweet and sour warm berry compote and its in turn covered with buttery crumb further having a scoop of Gelato. This was winner of the night for me as it had such amazing flavours and textures. * I’m drooling while writing this*
