I had their Bosco salad which I always order come rain or shine. You just can't go wrong with mozzarella, garlic mushrooms, spinach, roasted tomatoes and artichokes, topped with dressing and dough sticks. I usually hold off the honey mustard dressing and ask for balsamic instead as I'm not too hot on mustard. It is the most colourful and aesthetically pleasing dish.
For years I always dismissed salads as being highly expensive for what they are and as things that left you hungry. But now I understand. If you pick the right salad - and Pizza Express's Bosco is way up there - it can be just as filling as any other dish. I always appreciate it when a salad includes a little substance in there so it's not just a pile of leaves looking up at you. The dough sticks here are wonderfully 'springy' in texture and all the textures and flavours of the salad work together well. Artichokes are a new addition to this salad which weren't there before, nor were they something I had tasted before. And I loved them. I found the texture very similar to mushrooms and I'm a huge lover of mushrooms.
Around the time of my birthday I got into cheesecake in a massive way. I was never particularly fussed with cheesecakes, now I'm all about that cheesecake life. When I saw that Pizza Express had a honeycomb cream slice which included a layer of salted caramel... easiest decision ever.
