Our police boxes across the city have had some notable food and drink successes down the years. Tupiniquim, Barnacles & Bones and The Counter are fantastic, Souped Up and Miro’s Burrito Box are very good, and the Bollywood Box was a great favourite before Nutan moved to more permanent premises.
When McDougall’s opened in the police box on Drumsheugh Gardens it had a rather troubled run and soon closed.
In its stead has arisen Biscotti’s. Given it’s on my route between home and work, I paid it an early visit.
I didn’t feel like trying their coffee on this occasion, so simply ordered a bacon roll (£1.50), which was quickly prepared by the friendly counter man.
With the working day beckoning, I munched as I walked.
A fresh morning roll was generously packed with profuse and well-crisped rashers. I had expected a fairly routine offering, as the box looks quite modest, but this was right up there with the best bacon rolls I’ve sampled in the city. I was very pleased with it.
So overall, I was glad to have visited Biscotti’s early in its tenure. This location may prove a little tricky, but I think it has a decent chance to succeed on the basis of their impressively good bacon rolls. Stop by and try one, soon.
