When I spotted that it was under new management, I thought I’d give it a visit, not least because I’d heard tell of a breakfast wrap that sounded monstrously good.
The premises are very small, but this current configuration seems a little better than before, with room for a few tables of sit-in punters. I imagine the majority of business will still be from takeaway customers, though.With my order already in my mind and thusly communicated, the friendly counter woman was promptly about preparing the elements of my breakfast wrap, with items cooked to order. Once prepared, we collectively reflected that it was likely to be messy eating, so I left loaded with a healthy supply of napkins.
With a couple of sausages, rashers of bacon, a soft-yolked fried egg and tattie scone, it was a wrap of considerable heft and substance. It was tasty stuff that really hit the spot. I was very pleased with it.
So overall, the King’s Pantry seems on a much surer footing than before, at least in terms of its breakfast selection. It’s an item that I enjoyed, both in spite of and because of its messiness. I’d visit again and be happy to point you in its direction.
