Pizza Lenuo23 Reviews
I love pizza. Its one of those foods that span nationalities and tastes with its flexibility. So its a damn shame when a food as versatile as pizza is almost confined here in Jeddah to the big three of assembly line pizza (Papa Johns, Dominos and Pizza Hut in descending order of quality) and a few fancy Italian restaurants. Which is why its a nice breath of fresh air for casual dining that places like Lenuos Cafe exist. Nestled a few blocks after Chilis and away from the main road is this little pizzeria that I found by complete accident.
The first thing youll notice (apart from the solitude, which may or may not turn you away) is their claim of using olive wood in their ovens. I havent actually checked if the wood they’re using to bake their pizzas and calzones is olive or not, but the end result does taste good. The next thing you’ll notice are the ingredients. Away from the hegemony of pepperoni, sausage, chicken and (shudder) pineapple you’ll find some refreshingly unique toppings. Artichokes, zucchinis, eggplants, anchovies and Nutella (!!) caught my eyes. I’m not a vegetarian by any stretch of the word but I have to say the zucchinis and eggplants pizza is my favorite. And the attention to quality goes to the rest of the ingredients.
So is this the best casual pizzeria in Jeddah? Quite possibly.Read more
