Ziggy's Eatery

Delicious and nutritious
Among the trendy eateries on lively Carlisle Street is Ziggy's Eatery, which serves a fusion of Middle Eastern and Mexican cuisine to create deliciously interesting meals.

The popular haunt has a broad mix of healthy options and what could best be termed comfort food, to suit all cravings.

I got a chicken schnitzel wrap, which was a little more exciting than a run-of-the-mill schnitzel wrap, as it was dripping with aioli and Mexican sauce. While this mysterious Mexican sauce was tangy, it wasn't at all spicy. The wrap was quite sizeable, and was quite filling with a healthy amount of salad around the crunchy schnitzel.

I did make the mistake of trying to liberate the wrap from its aluminium foil. Big mistake, as the pita did not do a great job of containing its insides. Trying to re-wrap it up in foil did was a great failure, as the end of the wrap dripped out a mass amount of Mexican sauce.

A side of chips perfectly complemented the wrap. The regular sized chips, $5.50, were ample for two to share. The perfectly crunchy chips had just the right amount of seasoning. Also on the menu are the Ziggy's Home Fries lathered in their secret sweet and tangy sauce, which I'd be keen to try next time.

All in all, Ziggy's Eatery is a winner for taste but not so much on price as there are plenty of cheaper options nearby.

Love Ziggys! Never unwrap the foil all the way, just enough to take a bite!
