Mak­ing meal out of ‘quick bite’

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - EATING OUT -

ACATCH-UP session with an old mate was long over­due, so we planned a get­to­gether over some grub at Triple Kirks. But this was af­ter work and I was shat­tered, so it would just be a quick bite – or so I thought. Af­ter set­tling into a quiet cor­ner and or­der­ing a cou­ple of drinks from the friendly staff, I went for the smoth­ered chicken. This turned out to be a large, moist chicken breast, topped with a gen­er­ous por­tion of ba­con and sweet, smoky bar­be­cue sauce. Com­ing with crispy, fluffy chips – the best I’ve had in a while – and a good help­ing a peas, I pol­ished off the lot. My mate Andrew was chuffed with his chilli con carne, which came with a bowl of sour cream and chips. He said the chilli was sub­tly spicy and not too hot, but he would have pre­ferred the dish to have come with rice and not chips. Still, the two dishes were part of a two-meals-for£6 deal, which was good value for money. So in the end my quick bite turned out to be noth­ing of the sort. And sitting in the chilled-out pub with our bel­lies full, we were more than happy about that.
