Murdos Bar: Cairncry Road, Aberdeen
SOMETIMES travelling into the town centre for a meal can be too much hassle.
Which is why when the hunger pangs hit, I decided to take a short journey to Murdos.
A welcoming, local-style pub, it provides quality food at recession busting prices – something that is always very welcome
I plumped for the vegetable lasagne (£4.15) which arrived with side salad and garlic bread. It sounded like just the thing to ward off the cold winter blues.
The pasta was cooked perfectly and the vegetables were coated in a rich, creamy sauce.
It did not take me long to polish off this dish, – and the side dishes also received the thumbs up.
Meanwhile, my friend ordered gammon steak (£3.99) and struggled to finish the meal, the portion was so huge.
As if the melt-in-the-mouth gammon was not enough, it came with a hearty serving of chips, a salad and a rather-generous two fried eggs.
No matter how much she enjoyed the food, there was too much of it for her.
Always ready to help out, I finished off the chips she left.
With a pint of lager (£2.20) and a diet coke (£1.15) the overall bill came to just £11.49.
