October 29, 2015 Old Town, pizza No Comments



My late night pizza shenanigans have taken me down many strange routes, but I haven’t yet been lured in by an old haunt, Pizza Paradise on George IV Bridge. Burdened with one of the harsher varieties of hangover, I trotted there for a lunchtime visit.

The pretty simple interior layout features a counter next to the entrance then some cafe seating for those who choose to linger, of whom I was one.

My default hangover snack is a hummus falafel wrap so I ordered one of them. While I waited for it to be prepared, I was lured in by a tasty slice of Hawaiian pizza, so munched on that. It was pretty good.

Once my wrap was ready, I took a seat and prepared to tuck in. The wrap casing was very nicely toasted for good crispness. The filling was pretty good also, although there was rather too much of some sort of creamy spicy sauce, which would have worked really well with a kebab, but here only served to splatter my shirt and get lodged in my facial topiary.

Still, it did the required job and while I didn’t exactly feel splendid afterwards, I felt rather better than I had when I arrived.



So overall, Pizza Paradise was rather jolly and served its purpose very nicely. It was a little weird to be visiting in daylight hours but I just about coped. I’ll no doubt be back, probably when well on the way to another ruinous hangover. I look forward to seeing you there.
