Walking in Soho, we were looking for a quick bite before going home. Pizza is always a good choice in that case, because the wait time would amount to the time to order and then to heat the slices. As we were walking, we saw Famous Ben's Pizza, a small pizza joint. We were wondering what Ben was famous for and then saw the sign indicating that it was for his Sicilian Pizza rated best by...somebody.
This is you typical pizza joint: you would go there for the food, not the decor that was simplistic, if it was not for the quotes on the wall.
There we ordered the following slices:
This was a surprising slice: think about the vodka sauce that you typically find on penne pasta and put it on pizza instead of the classic tomato sauce. Et voila the vodka slice. Genius, original and very good!
The second slice was the Palermo pizza:
Last was of course the Sicilian pizza. Remember: "Rated Best Sicilian Pizza".
Well, it was just ok. For a better slice of this kind, I prefer Stromboli that is not too far from there.
I was a bit disappointed, not that I had high expectations, but sometimes, you find these little hidden gems. Famous Ben's Pizza is not one of them, although their vodka slice is delicious and I would just go back for that one!
