Lemon Tea (Refill) IDR 30K
Before I start with the food, let me tell you one of the nicest drink menu which I really like every time I visit here. There are 3 options of free-flow drinks: Nestle Blackcurrant Tea, this, and Iced Tea. Basically, for a restaurant like this, I personally think this is a good all-time promotion because usually drinks are charged quite highly and of course, no refill. From my own experiences, usually I just refill once or none at all, because the glass is already quite big and trust me, if you order the sweet ones like blackcurrant or lemon teas, you’ll feel full sooner. But still, it’s a nice thing to be assured that you don’t need to pay for another glass of drink whenever you need it!
Dough Balls “Speciale” IDR 35K
The dough balls are one of the signature starters of Pizza Express and this newer version is actually still the same dough balls, but these ones are rolled and baked with Grana Padano cheese, then also served with garlic butter dip. Whenever I eat here, I always enjoy the dough balls so this is a must-try item. The special dough balls are indeed special because they were more cheesy and salty, but in a good way. Yours truly is not really a fan of cheese and its related products, but milder and lighter ones don’t hurt, so these ones were still pretty enjoyable especially if eaten with the garlic butter!
Classic Pizza – Funghi di Bosco IDR 75K
So our Zomato voucher is valid for one free pasta or pizza from certain selections only, and we decided to have this. The classic pizza is claimed to be Pizza Express’ original creation which hasn’t changed since 1965. Wow! Now that’s what we call classic, LOL! This Funghi di Bosco contains of Portobello mushrooms and garlic oil, pretty simple ingredients yet powerful. The mushrooms were spread out quite generously, and even just be looking at it, one can drool like super drool!! XD This classic pizza is a bit smaller than Romana, but thicker. Honestly, I am more into thicker and softer pizzas than thinner and crispy ones, so I enjoyed this so much. The garlic taste was strong but mixed well with mushrooms so the taste was just perfect.
Romana Pizza – Vesuvio IDR 98K
Vesuvio is one of the newest creations in Romana pizzas selection, contains of pepperoni and hot soft n’duja sausage on a creamy sweet potato base, baked with mozzarella and finished with watercress, shaved Grana Padano and chili oil. First of all, I like their Romana pizzas because, as inspired by pizzas in Rome, Italy, they are bigger, crispier, and thinner. And Vesuvio certainly wasn’t disappointing at all. The pizza was very colorful and pretty, also very tasty and unique. The watercress was a good addition although it didn’t bring much contribution to the taste, but the crunchiness was great.
Banoffee Pie IDR 60K
For the dessert, I chose this one, which is a combination of bananas, cream, caramel sauce, crumbly biscuit, with vanilla ice cream. The cake wasn’t exactly the kind that I like, clearly still a bit frozen when served, I found it difficult to be enjoyed. The cake was practically hard and cold, the crumbles were alright although didn’t give significant taste. The vanilla ice cream was decent, though. Personally, I was disappointed with this dessert, absolutely not worth it.
