Thumbs up from me.

But my favourite is a place across from the Greens in Tecom (facing Al Sidir). It's a tiny hole in the wall but it's called Pizza Connection and it's damn good Italian style pizza. Nice thin and crispy crusts, not too much sauce, and it's run by a genuine eyetalian.

Al Sidir is that New Greens quadrangle closest to Sheik Zayed and Tecom, at the foot of the bridge over to Media City.

The pizza place is a bona fide hole in the wall. It's easy to walk past it and never notice it's there.

Don't talk to me about that bridge.

Question: is it possible to get lost on a bridge? Well I did earlier this evening (trying to walk from the Gloria Hotel bit over to the other side, then over to that Grand Millenium jobby - took wrong turning on bridge - TWICE!

the Bridge at the Gloria is the metro bridge not the bridge at the Greens?

That's the metro bridge, right?

The Greens bridge is a proper vehicle bridge. Can't see how one can get lost crossing it.

My Review:

Red Tomato’s pizzas aren’t too heavy and they certainly aren’t too light. The brown dough is hard to come by in Dubai and the toppings prove fresh and well-picked. The dough is hand tossed by real italians rather than machine tossed. Go for the spicy pollastrona with its marinated grilled chicken, roasted capsicum and touches of parsley, although you’d be hard pressed to find anything wrong with any of the other menu options – pretty, sweet, delicious.
