Aberdeen Best Original Kebab: Market Street, Aberdeen
HAVING sampled a chain pizza take-away previously, I decided to get a meal closer to home.
And around the corner from my flat, I found a place often passed-by but rarely noticed.
Choosing the hottest thing on the menu, I went for the 10in hot and spicy pizza (£7). Pepperoni, slightly undercooked onions, peppers, jalapenos and a tangy tomato base were smothered in a ludicrous amount of mozzarella. Fine dining this ain’t – and I don’t care.
The missus, foregoing the healthy option for once, picked a 10in garlic pizza (£6) – and garlicky it was. Topped with huge chunks of genuine chicken, unfortunately processed ham, mushrooms and garlic butter, it was very pleasing.
The bases were doughy and the pizzas were a little greasy, but in that “guilty pleasure” way. Let’s face it, sometimes you’re not exactly looking for authentic Italian, with all its airs and graces.
The chips (£1.50), were crisp, dry and tasty, easily polished off with couple of generous dips (50p each). This is not food to have regularly – I could feel my arteries hardening – but as a sometime-treat when you’re feeling indulgent, it puts a smile on your face.
