500 Degrees is the best ED pizza joint!


Recommended Posts

I don't know them, I'm not affiliated with them and I'm not getting paid by them, they're just the tastiest! Posting this was inspired by an inedible pair of pizzas from Franco Manca. We literally binned them, got a refund and ordered a replacement from 500 degrees. It's just arrived and it's delicious!

I thought 500 Degrees had closed down and been replaced by Yard Sale Pizza?

Does it still have a branch in Lordship Lane?

We had a very delicious pizza from the newly opened Yard Sale recently. Very different dough from Franco Manca.

Oh OK, how weird. Maybe I'm confusing it with somewhere else.

Is 500 degrees the sit down Italian place? We went there once fairly soon after it opened, and the food was fine but the atmosphere was strange and the music was terrible.

Will try a delivery though if it's still there, in view of the rave reviews above!

Franco Manca is now the usual private equity owned chain and I miss going to the original Brixton pizzeria - which was back in 2009. It has become unimaginative, variable and needs some fresh thinking. Their desserts are crap. Their Tiramisu an abomination. (Does anyone know a good Tiramisu delivered home - one of the brutal casualties of the lockdown for some of us)

My favourite pizzerias right now that deliver (not affiliated with any) in SE... ( I am in SE21)

Bravi Ragazza ( Streatham)

500 degress (Only tried the Herne Hill one)

Mama Dough (again, numerous branches)

BoNA sourdough in Forrest Hill

I personally prefer the sourdough, Neapolitan but ... have tried the two below ...

Voodoo Ray was not amazing pizza but had a good vibe, cocktails and you could do by slice etc. (I ony went to the one in Peckham)

Agile Rabbit - ditto as Voodoo Ray

Havent been out in a bit but Rocket in Dulwich village did a 5 pound pizza (or pasta) if you picked up.

And finally, I read that Pizza Express was on its knees so I have done a few charity acts. Will be a shame if it disappears...

    • Probably not, Alice. Never mind
    • I seem to remember it is quite straight forward - you just send them an email explicitly stating you are making a FOI request and who you are and say you want to see all the responses from the consultation. 
    • Vinegar seems to work. A few years ago we had a real fox problem, and I was told human urine is good. Thing is, it smells and seems you need a lot of it. Some vinegar along your perimeter should help. They've hundreds of other gardens to prowl.  
    • I was with TNV up until about a year ago and I had an out of hours emergency. I don’t know what they advise on their voicemail now but back then it was to go to the SLEVC on The High Parade in Streatham. In my panic I heard the message and went to Streatham instead of Camberwell (which is closer to ED) & the experience in Streatham was appalling. Perhaps my pet and I were just very unlucky with the vet on duty that particular night, I don’t know, as I hadn’t been before. But I do know I’ll always regret going to the High Parade clinic in Streatham and will never go near the place with a barge pole ever again. A couple of the nurses were wonderful but the rest was truly dreadful.
