Salt n Pepper

I’m enjoying the delights of Bruntsfield so far. It’s great to have Castello so near at hand, the flat where I’m staying has a particularly comfy chair, and there are some eateries nearby that I’d not previously tried.

One such place was Salt n Pepper on Roseneath Street. I popped in on another sunny lunchtime.

The cafe’s set-up has some tables at the front for sit-in customers, with the space tapering to a narrow counter at the back for takeawayers to queue. I joined the queue squeeze.

Their menu boards promised a range of wraps and panini with my eye caught by both coronation chicken and falafel options. I chose the latter.

Judging by the wraps made for people ahead of me in the queue, the default wrap base includes sour cream, guacamole, crunchy pepper salad and cheese with your filling of choice then added. This seemed a little unorthodox but looked like it would make for hearty wraps with no shortage of flavour going on. And so it proved.

The falafel balls were heated to order and added to the wrap case along with hummus and then toasted. With items paid for, I walked back towards home, munching on the go.

The combo of mature cheese and hummus didn’t quite work for me, but the fafafel and the crunchy salsa-like salad carried the day making things an enjoyably substantial eat.

So overall, Salt n Pepper pushed its combination of flavours real good. I enjoyed the wrap I sampled and would be keen to try more from their selection. Give it a look next time you find yourself in this part of town.
