You've just finished a 10k run, your legs are burning and your belly is rumbling... what do you do? Refuel! After the Baker Hughes race today we headed to Rock & Oyster to do just that. They have a "Lazy Sunday" menu which was just what we needed.
The interior of the Union Terrace fish restaurant is very sleek and sophisticated. It's a place for wining and dining as well as relaxing with friends. The waitress was friendly & made us feel right at home. She quickly took our drinks order & left us to peruse the menu.
Celebratory prosecco for me! My first drink in a month, it went right to my head. #Lightweight. We skipped starters and dove straight into mains. A whale & chips each please! Ok it was a giant crispy beer battered haddock, which was delicious but we all struggled to finish it. The chunky wedges and tartare sauce were some of the best I've had. It's a good job we didn't do starters - as much as the calamari was calling my name, there was no way I could of eaten both.
Plus we were saving room for dessert. At just £16.50 for 2 courses it would be rude not to...
Gordon was boring and opted for strawberry ice-cream and M went for the lemon tart. I'm glad I resisted the tart - it was nice but a bit too lemony for my liking. Luckily I chose the rum & raisin panacotta with toffee banana. Holy sh*t. It sounded a bit of a strange combination (and looks like sausage with ice-cream haha!) but I can't even tell you how good it was. It was epic. I polished it off and finished the afternoon with a well warranted food baby!
The Lazy Sunday menu is short and sweet - you can have 2 courses for £16.50 or 3 for £20 if you can handle it! I enjoyed everything at Rock & Oyster and am dying to sample their a la carte menu one evening. Their Thai style mussels sounds amazing! You'll find the restaurant at 27-29 Union Terrace, Aberdeen.
