Two times the pizza goodness













Let's be honest - pizza is one of life's greatest joys! So when I was invited to try out not one but two new Pizza Express stores in Belfast, I jumped at the chance. We started the night in the Bedford Street Pizza Express which has always been my favourite store. I have some good memories there (and yet always forget to wear flat shoes incase I have to go up the spiral staircase!). 

Two new stores have opened in Belfast which is a huge investment from the company - we are a city that loves Italian food! Even though Pizza Express is a chain, I've always had great food and great service there. The mushroom bruschetta remains one of my favourite things to eat ever! 

The first of the new stores is in Ballyhackamore. Since this is both the heart of East Belfast and the food central, it makes perfect sense to have a store there. This store has a very appropriate C.S. Lewis theme with his books lining the walls. The Ballyhackamore store definitely has a great atmosphere for date nights or a girl's night out. 

The second of the new stores is in St. Anne's Square. Perfectly located facing The MAC, it's a great post work, pre-theatre and family option. This store has a completely different interior to Ballyhackmore - it feels much more like an high end interior design magazine without being intimidating. I can imagine heading here on a Friday night after work with my mates and then heading round to The Dirty Onion for a few G&Ts. 

On our tour we tried lots of the new menu . My top pick was the honeycomb cream slice for dessert. I couldn't stop eating it! I also had a chance to try my hand at tossing a pizza. The outcome? I should stick to my day job!

Overall, both new stores are winners in my eyes. Great locations with glorious food. Long live Pizza Express!
