Discover the secrets of Italian cuisine, in Florence

I never order margarita pizza. Something about only putting 2 ingredients on a pizza makes me think “How Boring” and “What a waste of pizza base”. Surely, the cheese and tomato is the foundation for the other toppings? Surely, the pizza is not finished until more is added?

Anchor Beer, Cambodia

Asian Beers have a reputation for being weak flavoured, watery lagers. Although alcohol content varies, taste lies in the same ballpark, regardless of brand.
