Bus Fun

In Time Out a couple of weeks ago there was a page about things to do in Deptford, whilst having a peruse at this we came across a bus that serves pizza @thebigredpizza.  Friday evening saw us travel on one red bus south east to eat on another.

We found the bus very easily (pretty hard to miss) and were pleasantly surprised.  The bus is parked up next to The Bird Nest pub on Church road.  We walked through the entrance to be greeted by a bunch of very friendly staff and really cool chilled out atmosphere.  Being a little early (again) we decided to have a drink in the terrace area before being escorted to our table on the bus.  Once seated we took a moment to take in our surroundings and enjoy the novelty of being on an old London bus.

After studying the menu for a few minutes it was clear we were going to be having 3 courses each...

To start we plumbed for baby chorizo with dough balls, and spinach and ricotta ravioli with sage butter topped with parmesan.  This was definitely a tale of two dishes:-
  • The ravioli were cooked perfectly with a little bite to the pasta, and were full of flavour.
  • The baby chorizo was very tasty, as were the dough balls however, there was nothing to bring the dish together as a whole.

Next up were the mains - pizzas to be precise.  We chose a pepperoni pizza and the mighty red.  The pizza bases themselves were some of the best we have tasted.  It was evident that all the toppings were fresh and bursting with flavour.  The pepperoni pizza had more cheese on than the mighty red, which actually worked perfectly as one of us (fussy Soph) isn't a big fan of stringy cheese. We saw off both pizzas with ease before we knew it despite the size!

We rounded the meal off with a freshly baked chocolate brownie and sticky toffee pudding.  Both were soft in the middle and divine with the brownie being one of the best we've tried  It was a perfect way to end a great meal.

Who says food on public transport is rubbish!!  GO HERE PEOPLE..... IT IS GOOD!
