Japes Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Japes:

1) London’s best kept secret is out. Japes is the only restaurant in London where you can experience the real legendary deep pan Chicago pizza. If you love pizza with tons of topping and more melting cheese than Chesney Hawkes’ number one single, then read on.

2) Japes is on Dean Street in Soho, so there are plenty of options left, right and centre for pre- and post-pizza drinks.

3) The drinks list at Japes is as fun as their pizzas. Try an Aztec negroni, made with barrel-aged mezcal, antica formula and Campari, or the boozy, minty Grasshopper hardhake with vodka.

4) Let’s get down to business. There are two types of pizza: the deep-dish and pizza pot pie. The deep dish is baked in a deep pan, 4cms thick, giving it that high edge, leaving space for cheese. The pot pie pizzas are made in a pot, topped with dough and baked like a pie, before being upturned to reveal… you guessed it… the cheesy topping! The key difference is that the pot pie is more saucy.

5) The texture of the pizzas is also different to normal pizzas. Japes use a mix of flours for the base and crust which gives them a unique bite.

6) The all-important cheese pull is becoming one of the most photographed beauties on Instagram. Watch passers-by gawp at the wonder of the cheese pulling action and then try it for yourself. Just make sure not to spill any cheese on yourself or the table next to you.

7) Pizzas come in two sizes: normal and XXL. Only two people per week manage to polish off an XXL on their own so it may be a good idea to share. From the deep dish section, the Chicago is a classic choice topped with pepperoni, mountains of mozzarella, parmesan and tomato sauce. From the pot pies, The Chickenati is crowned with chicken, prosciutto, mozzarella, gorgonzola, broccoli and mushrooms.

8) If you’re on a diet, they also do some fine salads including a chicken and bacon Caesar and a veggie salad with greens, mozzarella, cherry tomato, walnuts and strawberries.

9) For puds, there are five waffles to choose from, all with lovingly homemade ice cream. For chocolate lovers, the Monkey Peanuts waffle is topped with thick, melting, peanut milk chocolate sauce, red berries, vanilla ice cream and crushed cookies.

10) The Japes interior isn’t too shabby either. Sleek and fun, comfy velvet lined chairs and sofas set the tone for a night out with a group or just the two of you. Just be sure to book ahead.
