After reading great things about Anema E Core on the internet. I decide to head there to judge for myself.
Anema E Core is located in Meadowbank, right next to the station. It's a small restaurant with a pizza oven (pictured below) but they mount massive tents outside which is where the customers sit. I was concerned that it would be cold in the tent in winter but they had heaters heating up the massive tents.
Anema E Core is really busy so I recommend you book beforehand.I have read wonderful things about how great their pizza is so I was eager to check it out. The table next to us orders a metre long pizza which looks spectacular.
I order the "081" pizza which has a tomato base with mozzarella, ham, mild salami, ricotta, black pepper with basil and olive oil (top photo, $24 and below photo).
The pizza came out so quickly and looked amazing. What an efficient kitchen Anema E Core has.The base is nice and doughy. The toppings are basic but come well together like real authentic pizza. I would strongly endorse their pizzas!! Yummo.
I also order some dessert including the Nutella donut (above $7). It's quite a sizeable donut, comparable to a small cake. The donut is cut in half with nutella. It's topped with a bit of cream, strawberries, icing sugar and drizzled with more chocolate.
Yummo. I love nutella so this donut went down like a treat. woot woot. $7 is also a nice price tag.
MW orders an Italian classic of Tiramisu which is served in a little pot. It's a rich dessert of mascarpone and biscuit soaked in coffee ($12, below). MW looks happy and highly recommends the tiramisu. The coffee taste is subtle.
Summary: Anema E Core is a fantastic venue for a casual pizza with friends or family. The pizza is tasty and is authentic Italian pizza. I would love to come here with a big group of friends and order the metre long pizza. Best pizza in the area for sure.
