After a fun time Scran Salon at Badabing, it was time to explore a new takeout option, so we wandered along Fountainbridge until we alighted upon Spicy Bite, a likely looking spot with a fine line in halal snackage.
I was in my usual topping mood, so chose the pepperoni and mushroom pizza. From the three available sizes, I chose the middle path with a 12 incher. On reflection, that was a trifle ambitious as it was a pizza base of considerable heft.
Once my item was with me, having been prepared by the friendly counter man, I initially ate as I walked, but soon resolved to save things until I’d returned to the safe confines of my abode.
The puffed dough base was perfectly pleasant; it just made the dish a considerable eating challenge.
The topping was fairly routine aside from the halal pepperoni, which packed all the cuminy goodness of Turkish sucuk. It made for good eating.
So overall, Spicy Bite was an interesting place to find, as I feel a decently good late night halal takeaway is probably something that might come in handy for future reference. While it wasn’t completely compelling, I’m glad to have visited and would be happy to visit again.
