Thursday night, late shopping in Aberdeen...which means the Bon Accord Centre food court is open for tea. And lo, it is time for the highlight of my week in Aberdeen, the mince pilgrimage.
Not just mince: tatties (mashed, of course)carrot (mashed, of course) and skirlie, that weird north-eastern delicacy which seems to be fried pinhead oatmeal. All available at the Taste of Scoutland outlet, at which quality (and food temperature) can, shall we say, vary. But it's a matter of principle. Last night all was well. And to complement the sheer comfort food mashiness, I ordered a bowl of chips. They were good too.
If only there had been peas.
