Pizza Express, Loughborough, October 2017

Another quick pizza post as a result of another night out at the cinema with regular cinema and dining companions Karon & John. It’s always a bit tricky to judge which of the various restaurants to choose when you’re on the clock. We thought that pizza would be a safe bet, because once you’ve made it up it cooks pretty quickly. Were we right? Find out in a moment.

My choice tonight was pizza campana, a current special featuring crumbled pork & fennel sausage, friarielli (a kind of Italian broccoli leaf), tomato, garlic oil and mozzarella, finished with Gran Milano cheese and parsley.

It was a nice pizza, good to have something a bit different for once. We also shared a standard side salad, which is ok, just rather uninspiring.

Pizza Express have not upped their beer game since last time, so I opted for the Belvoir (pronounced beaver if you’re not from round here) ginger beer, a lovely and refreshing ginger beer (non-alcoholic).

So did they manage to get our dinners out in time? No. The trailers had nearly finished by the time we had got out and in to the cinema.

Tonight’s film was Kingsman : The Golden Circle which was a really good fun action romp, the perfect action nonsense antidote to one of the busiest weeks of work I’ve ever known.
