I seem to be going through a bit of a masochist phase, at the moment, with a number of dubious choices that I’m taking a gamble on not turning out to best advantage. Undeterred, I thought I’d give Stop Take Me Away With You, which forms part of the Princes Mall food court, a go.

Princes Mall is thoroughly ghastly, but I’d really enjoyed my visit to Pizza Mafia when last I was there. They now have a sushi place and a branch of Chopstix, so I will be back to see where they register on the scale, in due course.

But today’s visit was at breakfast time so it was at Stop…that I stopped. Their seven item breakfast box seemed like the way to go, so that meant I simply had to select one item to cast aside as their full offering covered eight items.

I eschewed the grilled tomato, so the rather spiritless counter woman consecutively added bacon, sausage, black pudding, hash brown, scrambled egg, beans and tattie scone into a cardboard box. With financial transaction completed, I took up station at a nearby table and commenced eating.

It proved to be quite the worst breakfast I’ve sampled in the city. The sausage was particularly poor with a woefully low ratio of meat to rusk. The eggs were totally unseasoned and even the bacon was extremely light on the expected salty flavour. It was disastrously pish.

So overall, Stop, Take Me Away With You should be renamed Don’t Stop, Take None of the Dreadful Shit Away With You. I’ve never had such a flavourless and depressingly bland breakfast. With drab service and a gruesome location this has to be one of the dullest places to dine in the city. Make sure to learn from my experience and never visit under any circumstance.
