Head­ing back for more great grub

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

WHEN I first moved to Aberdeen, Ma Cameron’s was one of the first pubs my mates took me to. I’ve been count­less times since then, but never eaten there. So, joined by a mate, I thought it was time to give it a try. I started with the crispy-coated chicken breast (£4.69) – moist, ten­der fil­lets in bread­crumbs. With a rich, tangy salsa and bal­samic-driz­zled rocket, it was de­li­cious. My mate’s breaded Scot­tish hag­gis frit­ters (£4.69) – bite­sized pieces of hag­gis in crisp bread­crumbs – were nicely pep­pery, though the whisky sauce was a bit bland. I love a good steak and the 8oz rump I or­dered (£9.99) for a main – juicy and ten­der, served with chips – ticked all the boxes. My mate gamely tack­led his huge New York BBQ chicken burger (£9.79). Filled with ba­con and onion rings, he en­joyed it but said it was over­loaded with sweet bar­be­cue sauce. With a few drinks, and a 25%-off meals be­fore 4pm deal, the bill came to £26.39. With great grub and of­fers like that, I’ll prob­a­bly be head­ing back to Ma’s pretty soon ... for more than just a pint.
