I’ve got to admit, I probably don’t have enough vegetables in my diet. My recent visit to Scoozi’s probably provided me with more vegetable than I had in days. The latter is a casual Mediterranean joint located near the Waterfront serving up a pretty large menu of breakfast and lunch items. I had their Meatballs and Alfredo Deep Dish (it was a tossup between their lasagna and their deep dish; I decided to get their deep dish since it’s more unique).
1/2 Dozen Meatballs ($11.95):
This came with tzatziki, warmed pita, and some greens. The meatballs themselves were quite tender and relatively juicy, and was well-seasoned with just a slight bit of spice. I absolutely loved the pita bread, which was warm, fluffy, and had a slightly chewy texture. There was a generous amount of tzatziki, which was thick and quite tangy, and went well with the meatballs and bread.
Alfredo Deep Dish ($17.95):
This was basically a casserole that’s filled with vegetables (tomatoes, artichokes, zucchini, spinach), ham, cheese and other stuff that I can’t really discern. The vegetables were pretty well-seasoned and flavourful, and I really enjoyed the cheese, which provided great richness. I do wish that there could be more ham, and the dish was also a bit watery from all the vegetables.
While I wasn’t overly impressed with the deep dish (even though it did provide me with a good helping of vegetables), I quite enjoyed their meatballs. I’m also quite impressed by their service: the food arrives quickly and there is a very friendly gentleman (whom I think is the owner) who greets all the owners. All in all, this is a place that I’d recommend checking out.
