MINATO-KU, TOKYO 106-0046
I decided to try this tiny pizza place called Savoy today as I was enjoying a leisurely afternoon stroll in Azabu-juban after many wet Tokyo days. A friend recommended this establishment and so I decided to give it a try.
The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of a rather bland flat building . No signs of a pizza place in sight.
As you enter though, you’ll find that the interior is quite cozy with bar counter seatings only.
The menu is also very minimalist. They had a steamed broccoli appetizer but the main course only consists of two choices of pizza, Margherita and Marinara. Each costing about 1500 yen.
I decided to give the all time favorite a try and ordered the Margherita. The pizza dough was very thin and soft and you actually had to roll it in between your fingers to prevent the toppings from falling off. It was delicious.
One pizza wasn’t enough for me today so I decided to give the Marinara a try. I found it interesting how the chef threw salt inside the wood fire oven.
Here is the Marinara pizza and I have to say it is the better choice of the two. I loved the garlicky taste. Exquisite.
My verdict ?. I have to say that in Tokyo you very often find beauty in the most unassuming places. If you love soft moist pizzas I suggest you give this place a try.
