Posted by DulwichFox May 23, 01:18PM

The Old Jaflong Bangla / Indian restaurant is to reopen as a Pizza place
500 Degrees which is a chain

Just we need, another frigging Pizza joint, and another chain.

I like good pizza. If you havenít tried Theoís in Camberwell then you should. They have more than pizza too.

The big drivers for pizza's world takeover:
1 - children love it (well, lots of them do)
2 - you can get away with poor table manners - seriously, who eats a whole pizza with a knife and fork
3 - the profit margins are huge - it's very cheap to produce so, provided you get enough customers, you can make a canny profit for relatively little outlay. (Ignoring set-up costs, refurbs, etc).

Could have been another barbers/cafe or nail parlour I suppose.

Sorry, Pizzas and burgers are not my thing, I would rather have a decent Thai or Chinese restaurant. Have eaten in both ED Thai establishments - average and below average food.

Pizzas are awful. Unhealthy, full of fat and bad carbs. Basically a dolled up bit of Welsh Rarebit.

If this continues, our high street will be the exclusive destination for wealthy foodies and no one else. Sad news.

Louisa.

The pizza I had in Naples the other day wasn't awful.

Welsh Rarebit should have mustard,herbs, extra breadcrumbs etc. added and the cheese mixture lightly cooked before being added to the toast and then grilled smiling smiley Better than pizza if done properly.

On this point I have to agree. Authentic Welsh Rarebit pisses all over pizzas bonfire party! Wait til the metro elite find out about it, itíll be 10 quid a pop in some lifeless artisan spot on a edgy high street somewhere.

Moaning about a new pizza place? I'm thankful its not a dominos, or fast food chain.
A destination for wealthy foodies and nothing else? Sorry, please educate me as to why ED is a destination for anything else?

Sad to see that Loutwo doesn't know what Welsh rarebit is...

Happy Thursday

Why is it that Pizzas that are cooked in an oven between 450 and 500 degrees F (250 to 260 degrees C)

But 30 seconds after being put on a plate and served up at your table they are typically stone cold. ??

messageRe: The Old Jaflong Restaurant to become a Pizza place
Posted by Loutwo May 23, 05:41PM

A new pizza place when there is something similar less than 50 yards in the other direction seems ludicrous to me, and many others Iím sure. We currently need a lot of things on this high street, but we donít have them. Mostly because, the wealthy foodies can bring in more money than useable shops for ordinary people. Money speaks, as usual.

Also I donít need patronising on what cheese on toast looks like, and yes FYI, I am being ironic here.

Louisa.

The rarebit in Franklins is sublime.

We still have fewer pizza restaurants than 'Indian' restaurants.

500 degrees also have a restaurant in Herne Hill which is very good indeed (better than Franco Manca in my opinion)

Foxy itís cold because itís itís a wafer thin dough thatís been topped with various inedible ingredients. In Italy itís a snack, they donít treat it like a dinner. Not like people here do.

1/10 and rehashing your classic "posh cheese on toast" troll. Pizza is some high end dish for the metrololitan elite. Lolz.

messageRe: The Old Jaflong Restaurant to become a Pizza place
Posted by Loutwo May 23, 06:40PM

Dress it up however you like, we have a high street aimed at wealthy foody types, at the expense of a useable high street which reflects the wider population. Those are the uneasy facts, which are of course, uncomfortable for the metropolitan elite to have to admit to.

Louisa.

Proper pizzas aren't that unhealthy at all. Yes they have cheese but it's no more unhealthy than a cheese and tomato sandwich. I make them myself once or twice a month.
500 degrees is the one in Herne Hill isn't it? It's not exactly a multi-national chain, they have 3 outlets all fairly local to this area. Not exactly Pizza Express. I hear the pizzas are very nice.
Good luck to them.
Please stop making everything into a class war.

I think you'll find high streets everywhere have lost the 'useful' shops; butchers, bakers, greengrocers etc. hark back to a different time when there were no supermarkets. It's nothing to do with wealth and everything to do with shopping habits.

Fark me

2019 and Louisa and foxy still banging on about pizza, class, wealth and health

A tasty slab of pizza, filling you up in a restaurant setting for £8 - truly the 1% have taken over

Grow up you two. I know you havenít managed it in at least 6 decades but give it a go

Sephiroth, as you know, I am not one to instigate an argument, but I am one who will call out the elephant in the room. Do we REALLY need yet another pizza establishment in ED? Serious question. Because I can name at least two hands worth of different types of pizza within a quarter of a mile, and thatís a very conservative estimate.

Louisa.

I just reported that After being closed for a couple of years Jaflong was reopening as a new Pizza gaff.

I'm not banging on about anything. I haven't mentioned anything about Class Wealth or Health

So Please do one.

To be fair to you foxy, on this thread, you havenít.

I guess it was the old ďfoxy starts a thread moaning about a restaurant and Louisa pipes up with her usualĒ

Pizza paces are ten a penny. Because they are relatively cheap. And tasty. Bang for buck. People (as in ďwill ofĒ) love pizza. What are ya gonna do?

Not sure foxy has started a thread complaining about a new Indian restaurant - and what is the se22 Indian v pizza score these days?

messageRe: The Old Jaflong Restaurant to become a Pizza place

Jaflong hasnt been closed for 2 years and replaced by a pizza shop.

Jaflong moved its business to an adjoining road and left an empty restuarant behind that has fallen into disrepair.

A new employer is taking over an empty retaurant creating working class jobs and selling a traditional Italian peasant food.

I'm more concerned that new business owners are lacking in imagination. Another barbers just opened by the station and now another pizza place. Do these places actually make money with at least 2 other places of the same nature only less than 10 minutes apart?

And another opticians which I really don't think our high street needs. The fact is that our online shopping habits have reduced the need for local shops. Perhaps, in view of the acute housing shortage in London, we should be thinking of reverting commercial premises back to domestic (as has been the case in various side streets in ED).
