Revamped version of a classic

Time Out Says

you could hear the collective sigh of sadness and nostalgia across Dubai when the long-standing Park n Shop precinct in Jumeirah – including PizzaExpress shut up shop in October. But end of an era aside, most of the outlets have gone for a new and improved version of their original selves in the adjacent Al Ferdous complex, not least the family-favourite pizza and pasta restaurant.

Boasting an urban retro vibe with funky pieces of art work and graffiti adorning the industrial-style walls, the all-new, bigger and better branch of this Italian stalwart has already become a huge hit. Pizza Express fans will be pleased to hear that the menu hasn’t changed and the much-loved, Piccolo menu is still on offer for the youngest diners. A real highlight for the little ones is being able to don their own chef’s hat and apron before making their own pizzas, too.

Pasta dishes are packed full of flavour, but you’re missing a trick if you don’t opt for a pizza.The signature Calabrese pizza turns up the heat for those who like a bit of a spicy kick to their food, while the margherita bufala, loaded with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and garlic is a classic, but a firm favourite. Tip? A drizzle of chilli oil finishes this off nicely.

An oldie but a goodie, a top option for a spontaneous supper with the family.
