About Time: You Had Unlimited Lasagne in HackneyBy Angelica Malin
Calling all pasta lovers! Lonzo in Hackney has just started a series of amazing Lasagne Sundays. Imagine this: all-you-can-eat, family style lasagne, along with a large green salad, plus spiced rice pudding or apricot tart, for just for £20 per person. Sounds too good to be true? Read on:
How it works is that there are 2 large rotating lasagnes on the table, a large green salad and a bubbling rice pud in the oven. Sit down at any time from 2-11pm and feast up. No judgement made on how many times you come back for seconds. The lasagnes will change weekly – this Sunday is a bad-ass ox-tail version and a veggie option too. It’s basically like going to your Italian grandma’s house for Sunday lunch, be as greedy as you like!
The space not only supplies freshly baked bread to LARDO, sister restaurant Lardo Bebè and restaurants such as Taberno do Mercado and Mission, but also opens most days with a menu that is directly inspired by the production of food prepared within LONZO’s kitchen and by other local makers.
Customers can come to LONZO to enjoy some food and a glass of wine, and find out more about the range of products that the LONZO team has sourced from local producers. Skilled baker Ben Glazer heads up the bakery and has developed a range of breads such as Pane Cafone, baguettes and focaccia available at LONZO each weekend. Sounds good to use.
LONZO is at Helmsley Place London E8 3SB
