One of my girlfriends wanted to try Pizza Express so we went to the outlet at Holland V for lunch on a Sunday. Of course we had to order the famous Dough Balls. We were spoilt for choice with the pizzas and pastas and in the end, settled on Calabrese and the Lobster & Crabmeat Ravioli. The dough balls had a delightful crispy exterior and chewy and warm on the inside. The garlic butter only served to enhance the overall experience. These are carbs definitely worth the calories haha. I particularly enjoyed the Calabrese which was essentially a rectangular pizza topped with Calabria-style sausage, spicy Italian sausage, mozzarella, parmesan, jalapeΓ±o peppers, chili, roasted peppers, pesto and rocket leaves. The ingredients all came together very well, resulting in a pizza that was full of flavour. The lobster and crabmeat ravioli was smothered in a mushroom and pomodoro sauce. I enjoyed the little pockets of stuffed pasta but I would order the Calabrese anytime.

Pizzas at Spizza are hearty affairs and Xandra is no exception. Loaded with tomato, mozzarella, minced beef, pineapple, red onions and bell peppers, Xandra is a natural choice for me. I usually try to avoid processed meat such as bacon and ham in my pizzas as much as possible. And I try to order pizzas that meet my antioxidants quota so Xandra with its red onions, bell peppers and pineapple tick all the boxes.

I created my own pasta and chose penne to go with the spicy pork in tomato and olive sauce. The pasta is perfectly al dente and the spicy pork is juicy and soooo yummy! I usually alternate this with the squid ink spaghetti with seafood marinara sauce. The calamari was alright. Not as wow as the pastas.
