What's the SOOD STORY? 

In 2016, among the bustling streets of Broadway Market in the heart of East London, Sood was born. Initially known as Sood Family, we entered the scene offering tasty panzerotti and sandwiches with authentic Italian delicacies, such as parmigiana and octopus ragu. As our love for cooking grew, we expanded our activities, organizing Supper and street food and catering events. Our passion led us to Old Spitalfields Market, one of London's oldest and most renowned markets, where we had the honor of participating in the project The Kitchens by Nuno Mendes, a Portuguese celebrity chef. portoghese. 

Thanks to our unique concept, based on the freshness of homemade pasta, we have become a real reference point for Londoners. Our reputation has reached the pages of renowned magazines such as BBC Good Food, Hackney Gazette and others, solidifying our commitment to authentic Italian cuisine.
