Following on from an energetic game of netball, I was hungry. As we were in town, we of course had our pick of any type of cuisine we fancied, one of the things I love most about BKK. Despite my friend trying to convince me to take her to Game Over (she’s not been yet), I just couldn’t eat another burger quite yet so we went to a pizza restaurant that had been recommended instead. Pizza? I hear you say….I know, I know but this is a pizza place with a difference.
Pala Pizza is under Asok BTS station and serves pizza by the slice, the half metre or the metre, pasta and salads as well as having a deli (cold cuts, cheeses, cakes and fresh breads) and a coffee counter. Pala claim to use only Italian ingredients and cater for a wide range of dietary requirements including gluten free. The food that passed us whilst we sat perusing the menu looked so good. The restaurant was busy, always a good sign, with Thai’s and westerners. Service was friendly and efficient, we were given a basket of fresh bread with oil and balsamic vinegar…nom nom.
Now, the reason I liked the idea of Pala Pizza is that you can order by the slice, ideal for a not-huge-pizza-fan-but-enjoys-a-bit-every-now-and-again person like myself. However, last night I opted for a Caprese salad; Italian mozzarella, tomato and fresh basil (290THB) and a Carbonara (I’m a great believer in you can tell how good a place is by its Carbonara!) (220THB).
Both dishes were served quickly and were fresh, tasty and delicious. The Carbonara was yum, the tomatoes were full of flavour and the mozzarella creamy! For me the portion size was perfect; big enough to fill me up but I didn’t come away feeling stuffed, for those with a bigger appetite you might want to pay an extra 55THB and up the portion to a large! The pizza’s really did look delicious too and I will definitely be taking Dave to Pala Pizza to sample some more of the menu soon!
