Slice Girls West

4 Yewers Street
Vic 3011

If you aren't looking out for Slice Girls West, it is easy to miss, with just the oversize street number and a few fairy lights marking it out from the other industrial looking units lining the narrow street running off Moreland Road near the Footscray Arts Centre.

Right inside is the counter with coffee and cakes on offer in addition to the Pizza menu.

The fit out of the relatively small space is cute and almost kitsch with a few high tables and openings through to the kitchen at the back.

Upstairs work is going on to fit out a bar, which will be larder than the restaurant downstairs, it should be opening in February. The licence has been approved and downstairs a few beers and a cidre are now available.

We'd already made plans to take our meal down to the river, to make the most of sunny summer evening.

The better half, a fan of the city branch already knew she wanted the mushroom pizza which was also topped with mozzarella, caramelised onion, black truffle oil, and parsley. It didn't quite live up to the original she loves, with a little to much cheese and not enough 'shrooms.

I went for the Vegan option featuring a Napoli sauce, olives, mushrooms, roasted red capsicum, basil, and garlic oil. I was impressed with the pizza, great quality ingredients on a fantastic thin and just crispy enough base combined to produce a healthy and tasty winner.

The two pizzas came to a fair $24 all up, and although they aren't huge certainly satisfied us. The service was friendly and our boxed up meals seemed to be ready in a speedy 5 to 10 minutes, although things were pretty quiet. It is certainly work seeking out Spice Girls West down and it will be interesting to see how the venue develops in what is an area with plenty of change occurring.
