My Day at Westfield


I was invited to spend the day at Westfield this weekend, and in particular to sample the food and dining there, as they currently have a food festival on, with loads of offers and free tastings on at both the London and Stratford centres.

I went to the Stratford Westfield, as it is the closest to my house, and I still get a thrill of looking out of the viewing gallery over the Olympic park! James and I browsed the menus of pretty much every restaurant in there, and finally settled on Pizzaluxe. James is something of a pizza connoisseur so it had a lot of expectations to live up to, but it definitely hit the mark.

If you are looking for good honest home made pizza then this is the place to go. The menu is relatively small - I had the four cheeses, and James the Porco - topped with bacon and sausage meat - but so perfectly formed. They are all cooked one size (12 inches) which is more than enough, and served in slices on a long board. The base is just the lightest, thinnest crispiest thing I have ever tasted, but even so it was seriously filling. The mozzarella is to die for. So good.

I loved the industrial canteen style decor as well, lots of exposed steel pipes and wood and metal and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. They have a large outside space too, and I can just imagine this is such a great place to eat with friends when the sun is shining. I will have to make a date for another trip in a few months!

Lovely photos. I haven't really been to Westfield, other than to walk through on my way to the Paralympics.

Not heard of Pizzaluxe before. I think potential I'd not be full from a thin one like that but I'm greedy...

Oh my, I should avoid your blog around lunch time as there is the danger of coming across with amazing photos of food that I cannot access at the moment! What a nice place, I loved the sign. (And the pizza.)

Looks delicious!
I've only been to Westfields a couple times, but I absolutely hate going when it's so full of people you can barely move. Would go for a food event though!

Oh my gosh - it's definitely too late for a meal now but I could SO do with some pizza now...
