From The Independent
OK, it’s not adventurous, but it’s that rarest and most precious of things: an unerringly pleasant, risk-free dining experience. It’s comforting to know the menu off by heart. It’s strangely enjoyable to read the entire thing each time, as if there’s any real possibility you might order something different from the same two dishes you have eaten there on every single visit for several decades. Of course, you don’t – but hey, it’s fun to pretend.
If you’re in a strange town, looking for somewhere to get the kids fed, you know that Pizza Express is going to be fine. Maybe not the most exciting place, but not bad. And you know what you’re going to get.
