I saw an advertisement online recently for a $10 pizza and soft drink lunch special at Transit Bar in the city. I hadn’t been to Transit Bar before, so I immediately jumped at the offer.
My partner and I went there on Saturday for lunch, but when I first told him where we were going he was apprehensive. A warning, maybe?
When we arrived we were literally the only people in the place. Upon ordering, the bartender told us she was extremely hungover. Other than that, she was quite attentive and friendly.
I ordered the vegetarian supreme pizza minus the olives, and my partner ordered the pepperoni pizza.
They came out pretty quickly (we were still the only people in there), and despite looking like pre-made frozen pizzas, they were far from it.
I know I shouldn’t be impressed that my pizza had the olives removed, but it’s so often that request gets ignored that Transit Bar wins points for actually listening to my order.
As for the pizza itself, it was okay. It had heaps of toppings hidden under a lot of cheese, but it was fresh and hot.
The mushrooms were also really flavoursome, which I know is a random comment to make, but I really like mushrooms and these ones were good.
