Sometimes a walk off the beaten culinary path isn’t so much a foraging expedition as a trip to Meadowbank to check out one of its down-at-heel eateries. By this logic I stopped in at Snappy’s just across the road from Meadowbank House.
A straightforward takeaway, the counter set-up was very familiar. The blend of breakfast rolls and light lunch options was similarly recognisable.
I was hooked in by talk of a cheeseburger and chips option for the very reasonable cost of £3.50, so I ordered that.
The friendly counter woman was quickly about directing operations to ensure that these items were with me in quick time.
I thought it best to take up station at one of their shelf seats and commence munching there.
The chips were pretty routine and while the burger wasn’t of the best quality it packed decent flavour as it had a good fat content to it. It provided solidly pleasing eating.
So overall, Snappy’s lives up to its name in that it serves quick dishes to a good standard. It wasn’t the best burger in history but it was a fair feed for the money. I’d be happy enough to stop by again when next in the neighbourhood.
