The Gorilla Kitchen is a unique spot that is a must-try for all pizza lovers. This shop and pizza spot is tasty and cultural, with some unique ingredients brought over from all over, including Sussex, Umbria, and even Italy. They pride themselves in their unique merging of flavours to create an experience that you haven’t had before for a pizza shop or restaurant in general. 

The owners, Fiona and Roberto, let their Mediterranean roots come through to create their dishes. They collaborate with a family farm out of Calabria, Umbria, to get an organic and fresh pizza experience. They also have a few different locations to offer appeals to anyone around all of Brighton. 

Why Did We Choose The Gorilla Kitchen in Brighton?

So what makes The Gorilla Kitchen stand out from the rest? The biggest stand out factor is their environment and plethora of options that are unique to the pizza spot. They are served out of a small food truck that moves indoors during the colder season. However, don’t let the little truck confuse you to think that they don’t offer high-quality Wood-Fired pizza

Their Mediterranean dishes offer something that even the highest quality typical pizza spots do not: a new take on pizza. Whether you are looking for a pizza with all the toppings or something more classical, you can ensure that The Gorilla Kitchen is going to bring something fresh and fun to the table. 

What’s on Offer at The Gorilla Kitchen?

There are some classic dishes and lots of speciality dishes that The Gorilla Kitchen offers. Starting out with a Margarita and No-Nonsense Pepperoni to give you some options for the more picky bunch. If you are looking for something to branch out and get the full Mediterranean experience, La Reine, which is made up of mushrooms, oregano, ham, tomato sauce, and mozzarella. Another option is the Vesuvio which had a homemade pickled Calabrian chilli, salami, pepperoni, and peppery rocket to top it off. 

They also have a weekly guest pizza to give you something fresh to try, even if you’ve been plenty of times. This week, they offer Napolitano which has anchovies, capers, black olives, oregano, and sliced courgette. Top it off with some peppery rocket and mozzarella, and you have a mouth-watering dish to give a try. 

They also offer their own homemade olive oil and Nduja di Antico Nero from the farm they collaborate within Umbria to take home so you can get a piece of their flavour at home with your very own meals. Nduja is a unique meat dish to give your home an Italian touch that will have you and your entire family ready to dig in. 

Our Verdict

We cannot get enough of this fun spot no matter what mood you are in for flavour. This hole in the wall offers fresh and fun alternatives to your everyday pizza shop. It is affordable, unique, and offers everything that a good pizza spot needs with a twist. Give yourself a night out to treat yourself, and swing by The Gorilla Kitchen to keep your tastebuds happy. 

You can check out their weekly pizzas on their website to see whether you want to stick with the classics or try a new speciality option for the night. Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong with The Gorilla Kitchen pizzas, without a doubt!
