We absolutely adore squid, especially when it is cooked properly. This was evident here, the crisp outer coat reveals soft and succulent flesh inside. Seasoned well and most importantly not chewy. The perfect starter with a refreshing salad on the side.
|Scallops in curry butter|
We got given a couple extra as they were a bit small. Being the first plate brought out to the table, the presentation surprised us for a "chippy". This was when we knew this was no ordinary fish and chip shop.
The scallops themselves were cooked to perfection, soft and succulent, without being too chewy. The curry butter was the perfect match for the sweet white flesh. They were seasoned well, with a light and zingy salad on the side.
It was nice to have a choice of fish to choice from. Having never had hake in a chip shop before, we opted for this twist. The batter was light and thin, which surrounded the white flaky flesh of the well seasoned fish. The chips were fresh and not too dense or thickly cut. A similar salad featured, which added some colour to an otherwise beige dish.
|Beautifully cooked fish|
The white flesh simply fell away from the batter. A wonderfully cooked piece of fish in a tasty batter.
This was always Mrs SEO's choice as a child when treated to a chippy for tea. It was different to the traditional fatty and sometimes dense main meal. The batter was light and crisp again, with a flavoursome haggis within.
The star of the entire show, however was the curry sauce. I know it may seem strange that we are actually blogging about curry sauce. But this was different. Fruity, creamy, spicy, the prefect thing to dip chips into. Flavours of mango and lemon came through, we don't know if it was a homemade recipe or not, but whatever it is, simply devine. A must if eating a supper here.
|Sticky toffee pudding|
We were more than stuffed, it was pure greed that we ordered a dessert. One of our favourites was on special, so it would have been rude not too. This was the only fault of the night, being a little dry. The sweet sauce moistened it a little, with the accompanying ice cream.
