Kilau: Little Belmont Street, Aberdeen
TUCKED off the hustle and bustle of Belmont Street is a haven of cool.
Kilau is the ideal city centre retreat – whether it’s for a lazy afternoon lunch or a late-night coffee.
And on a chilly Aberdeen night I headed to the eatery for a light supper – and a head-to-head game of Scrabble.
The cafe was packed with cosy couples, students with their heads buried in books and chattering pals.
We managed to find a table and scanned the menu – which is made up of baguettes and crepes stuffed with an array of tempting sweet and savoury fillings.
My pal went for the tasty-sounding chorizo and haloumi combo on a baguette (£5.05), which looked fantastic and tasted good, if his satisfied silence was anything to go by. I went for my favourite, a crepe filled with coronation chicken (£4.10).
The pancake – crispy at the edges and soft in the middle – was packed full of tender chicken in a light curry sauce dotted through with sweet raisins, all accompanied by a fresh salad.
My friend was tempted by a sweet pancake (£3.85) for dessert – the banana and toffee sauce option. The classic pud smelled heavenly and got a big thumbs up.
Along with a yummy hot chocolate and coffees to get us through our gruelling game of Scrabble the whole thing came to around £23.
And the only thing that tasted better than the delicious meal was the sweet taste of victory when I beat my dining partner in our board game!
