My travels took me to the west of the city, today, so I stopped for a quick spot of lunch at Hungry Henry’s, on Slateford Road.
A simple little takeaway place, their menu features a good range of home-cooked dishes, with hearty fare to the fore.
I was in soup and sandwich mood, so opted for potato and sweetcorn soup and a pulled pork panini.
The friendly and efficient counter man was soon about the task of ladling the soup and toasting the sandwich, ensuring that I was swiftly on my way.
The soup proved to be very good. With a smooth texture, it was really well-seasoned and packed a good flavour punch. It pleased me, muchly.
The panini wasn’t quite so good. The pulled pork wasn’t very memorable, and the cheese could have used an extra few seconds to allow it to melt a little more.
So overall, I enjoyed the soup at Hungry Henry’s, but was less impressed by their sandwich offering. I’d be happy enough to pop back, next time I’m in the neighbourhood, so do visit if you happen to be passing, as their soup is worth sampling.
