Obika Mozzarella Bar has just opened on Draycott Avenue in South Kensington. And they do the most exquisite. stonebaked. wholemeal. mozzarella drenched. pizza.
I loved the 'Pomodoro Biologico'; a regular Margarita to you and me. All pizzas are prepared with Petra flour stoneground from soft local wheat from Molino Quaglia.
The dough then rises slowly for 48 hours and is baked until it's light and fragrant. My pizza was utterly delicious, I ate it all and then a third of my friend's - oopsies. Only criticism would be that sadly the rest of the pizzas on the menu are a bit of an acquired taste, as they are 'blanca' meaning that there's no tomato base.
The prices are utterly reasonable, starting at around £10 for a margarita; cheaper than Dominoes, ten times more flavoursome and with none of the gunk. The service was also fantastic. When we didn't like our four cheese pizza blanca the lady serving us was really gracious and bought us an alternative, no questions asked. This is definitely my new scrummy local.
