Edwards Bar: West High Street, Inverurie
ANYONE who knows me knows that I have a really bad sense of direction.
But even my best friend didn’t expect a wee trip out of the city would lead to a half-hour trek around Inverurie in the rain looking for somewhere to eat.
Fortunately, we stumbled into the welcoming warmth of Edwards.
We were soon heated up with a drink in hand, browsing a menu full of delicious sounding treats.
When I ordered the steak baguette with fries and coleslaw (£6.99) I must admit I was expecting more than what it said on the tin. With no butter, mayo or garnish on the bread, the sandwich was very dry. Fortunately there was a vast array of sauces on the table that I took full advantage of to make the tender steak strips a lot more enjoyable.
My pal opted for chicken goujons (£8.65) with BBQ dip, and these were delicious. Real, tender chicken breast in crispy breadcrumbs, accompanied by a thick, tangy sauce.
Both dishes came with thin, well seasoned fries (not chips) that tasted frozen rather than fresh, and got cold very quickly. The coleslaw with both dishes, however, was delightfully creamy and a very welcome addition to the plates. I doubt my sense of direction will ever improve, but if it leads to a tasty meal like this it might not be a bad thing.
