Wild Food Cafe

Wild Food Cafe in Neal’s Yard

Last week, I thought of eating at Wild Food Cafe in Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden, but as I was on my way to The Black Penny, I decided not.

Monday, I thought, give Wild Food Cafe a try.

How to get in, it was upstairs. Then I saw the door, it was closed.

20 inch pizza on communal table

Where now? I thought wander to Soho. But no, I would try the pizza place next door.  No great fan of pizzas.

Very basic, rough wooden tables.

I was shown to a communal table. It was ok, as I could place my stuff on the low window ledge behind. Other tables had coat pegs on the wall.

I was brought a bottle of cold water and a glass, and given an explanation of how the system worked.

I could order a slice (limited selection) or a  whole pizza. A whole pizza was a whopping 20 inches at £20. A slice a reasonable £4.

I ordered mushroom, with pumpkin seeds, I asked they skipped the chilli.

It came on a paper plate, no utensils, very thin base.

I started eating the edge, as less interesting, then watching others realised my mistake, hold by the edge, less messy.

It was the most delicious pizza I have ever tasted. Forget the rubbish served by Pizza Hut and Pizza Express.  Cooked in a wood-fired clay oven.

The only negative points, very hot, in the summer large windows to open, very noisy with awful music thudding out.

The place was very busy, I was told later they would be queueing out the door. It must be by word-of-mouth, as Neal’s Yard is not easy to find.

Home Slice started as a wood-fired stall in 2011, then opened in Neal’s Yard in 2013.

I did not try, they also have local beer on tap and in bottles.

I was going to The Black Penny for a coffee, but was advised to try a coffee in Monmouth Coffee Company. I was not disappointed.

    I returned Saturday night for a pizza, plus a lager, but very busy and even noisier. So busy, had to return hour and a half later to get a table.
