Like Prosecco? Oh yes me too and I loved the Hugo cocktail I tried at Pizza Express.
I liked it so much I decided I had to recreate it. It's not rocket science but it's very slurpable, so I thought I would share it with you along with my trip to Pizza Express in St Andrews.
I visited Pizza Express with my good buddies Stuart (Cakeyboi) and Genna (Blethering Boys). We were tasked with trying the Summer menu. It's sometimes tough being a food blogger!
We started with the most important order of the night, our cocktails. It was a good start to the night.
Then we went on to order some starters to share.
These were great and I loved the dip they were served with. Very moreish.
Leggera Panzanella "PizzaExpress"
I did enjoy this one., but I don't think it needed the dough sticks. Mind you if you were having this as a main course you might be glad of them.
Leggera Superfood Salad
This was a heavenly salad. When I go back I'll be ordering this as a main course and not sharing it at all. This is what a salad should be.
So hard to choose which one to have. I went for the Caprina Rossa. Beetroot, goat’s cheese, red onion, garlic, tomato and mozzarella. Finished with Gran Moravia cheese, rocket and pesto, served with a wedge of fresh lemon. It was a good choice. I do like a pizza topped with rocket and this one was lovely thin and crisp. A good flavour combo.
For dessert I selected off the Summer menu. I went for the lemon curd sorbet with blueberries, coulis and a chocolate straw. It was the perfect finish to the meal. Really refreshing, but not heavy. I am liking the summery fresh flavours on their new menu.
As much as we enjoyed the food, we also had great service from the friendly staff and had a good view of the restaurant, which was rather busy for a Wednesday night. It's obviously a popular place. Oh I do like people watching. Don't you?
After our meal we had a wee stroll round St Andrews. If you haven't been, you must make plans to visit. I love all the cobbles and the architecture, never mind all the interesting little shops.
