CRIT: Eat Out The Box - Artisans of Take Away, Capetown

Out of a desire to *not* do the dishes on our last night in Capetown, Francis suggested that we take a crisp walk along Constantia Main road, and buy ourselves Pizza for a treat...

During our stay we noticed a small take-away called Eat Out The Box - and decided to try this one instead of the standard 'hamster-on-a-treadmill' KFC, Debonairs or Steers... I'm glad we did!

Firstly, we walked in the wrong door and found ourselves on the kitchen side. Secondly, it was 45 minutes before the shop *actually* opened... Instead of sending us packing, Nicole made us feel welcome and showed us around to the correct door. She personally saw to the order, and after a mere 25 minute wait we had two hot Pizza boxes ready to go.

Geek Fact: The acoustics in the waiting area are great! (Savanna «3yrs» did Modern Interpretative Dance while I sang the blues, Kelsey «11mo» did some sideways manoeuvres and 'sang' as well)

Ok, the Pizza:
We ordered the Cape Doctor - Bacon, Feta and Peppadews R62 (We added Free Range Chicken for an extra R10) *Pizza Prices range from R20 - R85
The children had the Leelo - Ham and Pineapple R35

Our Pizza was so full of toppings...we didn't know what to do with it! We are all so used to the mainstream Pizzerias and their "meagre-toppings-lots-of-sauce" rule that to suddenly have a food-laden pizza was a shock! A wonderful juicy tummy-filling shock! They were so generous with the feta, piled on the peppadews and chicken - thank you and well done! My only 'negative' was that the pizza was a tad bland and needed some salt and a shake or two of Ina Paarmans Cheese Spice. But once there was a touch of salt, the flavours really came out!

Savanna usually refuses to eat Pizza, it's like pulling hens teeth... she ate two full slices without a grumble. Our 11 month old ate all of my crusts and most of my bacon. Eat Out The Box got a firm 'num-num' from our little critic. Well done!

Eat Out The Box also make gorgeous burgers as well.

Interesting Fact:
-The bases are home-made with an option of 'Gluten Free' or '50% Rye' - Nice to have a choice!
-They often run specials.
-They have an impressive Kiddies Menu ranging from R30-R36 (We promise you *will* eat their leftovers)
