There’s a shop in Clapton that bears an uncanny resemblance to a high street supermarket. Locals fondly refer to it as ‘Fake Sainsbury’s’. It’s a pillar of the Upper Clapton Road, and so is the pizza restaurant bang opposite it. Sodo Pizza is thought of similarly fondly, without any of the same concerns over trademark. The sourdough pizzas here are consistently up there with the best in London. They’re the kind with a crisp base and crust that taste of a lot more than dough. Plus the candlelit space itself is an extremely reliable (and cost efficient) casual date or dinner location.
