Friendly Food from Campus Pizzeria

previouspausenext

There are now a number of food outlets on campus which serve pizza, and for this innovation we probably have the double cohort of freshmen this year to thank, for the expansion of the eateries and their repertoire. Pizza is a perfect fast food, as it can be eaten with fingers, standing, sitting or walking, and is good both hot and cold. In this issue, the pizzas that came under our radar were from the SCR Takeaway Kiosk located at Clinic Road (opposite SCR Clubhouse).

Eating at the Kiosk is done standing and al fresco, which may to some bring back student day memories of getting fed on the cheap at Italian railway stations. But the fare was far daintier than what could have been bought at la stazione. The pizzas came in some varieties, the toppings being tomatoes and corn, smoked salmon and mixed peppers, the perennial Hong Kong favourite pineapple and ham, and the surprisingly pleasant teriyaki chicken topped with bonito shavings. As good pizzas should, they greeted the eater with their bright colours and the strong scent of melted mozzarella, and the first bite into the thin-crust base impressed with a surface crunch, followed by a chewiness that was the result of a well-kneaded dough. It was not exactly Italian, maybe not even genuine americano, but it was decidedly good food, which would invite the eaters to come back for their pasta and other dishes.
