December was such a busy month and I can’t believe I’m still writing about it but I need to include one final post.
Before the ladies all went off on their Christmas holidays, several to the Southern Hemisphere where it is hot and sunny and they’ve come back brown while the rest of us have turned grey or translucent (I speak for myself, not the others), we met for a final Sunday brunch of the year. It was S’ turn to choose somewhere so she chose to bring us all to her new neighbourhood. I’m so glad another one of my ladies has moved to the East End – they’re slowly being converted one-by-one…
Her choice of venue was Pizza East, a place I have been meaning to go to for years as it always has rave reviews from friends who love their food. Instead of checking out their pizza menu we dived into brunch and were pleased with what we got.
I veered off my usual sweet anything and went for a yummy spinach and polenta dish with a side of yoghurt and berries. To be honest, I could have left the yoghurt as the polenta portion came out huge and I really struggled to finish the other one. The others went for a mix of avocado bruschetta, eggs and pizza (good old G, we all had food envy).
Here’s some pics:
Overall, this was a good Sunday brunch experience. I would go back, especially after having a slice of G’s pizza. I loved the atmosphere and found the prices perfectly reasonable for an upmarket Shoreditch establishment. If Pizza East is full when you go, the new branch of Dishoom has recently opened around the corner and they also do a fabulous brunch (and outstanding food in general), but do try to make it to Pizza East. Sunday brunch should be a regular thing.
Pizza East can be found at 56 Shoreditch High Street, across the road from the Shoreditch stop of the East London Line. They do take reservations so I would suggest booking ahead as the place was packed by the time we left.
We paid between £7 and £17 each.
