“Sad to be leaving Scotland tomorrow, but I'll be back!”
My first taste of a chicken heart
After finding out that Prime Cuts (amazing steak restaurant) was closed this week we were stuck as to where to go for dinner. We wanted to have some steak before leaving Aberdeen since it is so good up here so had a look on the internet and found Tropeiro. We weren't disappointed! For a set price of around 24 you can eat as much as you want. The waiters walk round the restaurant with different types of meat and cut slices for you at your table if you want some. There are 12 different types of meat including 4-5 different types of steak, lamb, gammon, sausages, chicken and chicken hearts. There is also a salad and sides buffet bar so carb lovers like me don't have to worry about missing out! Although you do have to be tactical..
Union square is a big shopping mall with shops (obviously), cafes, lots of chain restaurants (Zizzi, Wagamamas, Yo Sushi, TGIs, Nandos etc.) and a big cinema. It is a good place to go if you are looking for somewhere to spend an evening. We went to see the new F1 film Rush this evening - such a good film! Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet. With Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde there isn't much that could go wrong!
Also, definitely try the ice cream sundaes in Handmade Burger if you want a post-film snack.. heaven in a dessert!Read More
It's legal tender!
I always think of the Michael McIntyre sketch every time I get Scottish money out of a cash machine up here. That man is so funny!
Union Street and bagpipes
The main high street in Aberdeen is Union Street. Along here you can find shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. There are also statues dotted throughout the city centre. One of these is of Edward VII and is situated on Union Street. Every day there is a man playing his bagpipes by that statue. Although I am not the biggest fan of the sound of the bagpipes it is nice to get into the Scottish atmosphere a bit as we walk past him on our way down Union Street.
