C and I had a great lunch at Roasti Bubbly Jocks last weekend. I can't recall the number of times I have driven, walk and ignored this wee restaurants on my way to Sainsbury and Morrisons. Its a pity this restaurant is not located nearer to byres road.
The food is unpretentious and in every way charming. COuld it be because we had lowered our expectations before going to the restaurant? Or was I biased towards the their contemporary Scottish style of cooking
The big question was how could there be no one here on a Saturday afternoon when 5pm does such a great lunch time deal
Mediterranean Fish Chowder. Rouille Crute. A very healthy portion of seafood medley that was good enough as a main meal on its own.
The vegetarian option of Cream of Celery Soup, Parsley and Croutons.
Seafish with Tagine Chermoula on Roast Aubergine. A Morrocan inspired dish that reminded me of sambal fish minus the heat.
Slow Roast Scottish Lamb Shoulder with very refreshing mint pea.
I highly recommend this place for lunch. Huge portions , home cook goodness PLUS great value makes a perfect start to the weekend.
