Sometimes, you just crave for something simple. Here at Pizza Union, the concept is simple. A short menu with a few salads and starters is extended by a choice of wood fired pizzas. You place your food and drinks order at the counter and then find a seat. A few short minutes later, your buzzer goes off signalling that your order is ready.
This Pizza Union is the one in Spitalfields. It is a no frills, communal seating kind of place. On the evening we were there, the place was buzzing and it took a few minutes to find some seats. Bare wood table tops are adorned with tin can holding cutlery and spicy olive oil.
This is not the kind of place to linger. The noise bouncing off the hard surfaces of the wall is not conducive to any coherent conversation. It’s an eat and run place.
The pizza when it arrives is piping hot, thin, crispy and generous with the toppings. The Italian couple sharing our table even brought their Italian visitor for a bite here. They said that even though it is not as good as in Naples but you can’t beat the price.
I saw a lot of people ordering takeaways from Pizza Union at the shared office that I work in. It seems to serve this area well and it’s very popular in the evenings. Great choice for a quick bite and great value too.
