Hearty por­tions af­ter hard day

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

WHEN it comes to food, for me big is al­ways beau­ti­ful. And the hearty por­tions served up at the Gar­logie Inn were just what I needed af­ter a hard day watch­ing the foot­ball. My gar­lic bread cros­tini (£3.95) seemed quite dainty when writ­ten in ital­ics on the menu. But what ap­peared on my plate were six huge slabs of crisp gar­lic bread with a mix­ture of ched­dar and moz­zarella cheese bub­bling on top. My girl­friend’s chicken broth (£3.50) drew praise for be­ing full of veg. Any prospect of me need­ing feed­ing for the next cou­ple of days went out the win­dow when the main cour­ses ar­rived. My bat­tered had­dock (£9.75) was as big as they come, but while the fish tasted nice and fresh, the bat­ter was a lit­tle on the soft side for my taste. My other half opted for Gar­logie’s Fa­mous Parmo (£10.95), a bread-crumbed pork fil­let topped with bechamel sauce, ched­dar, parme­san and moz­zarella. Al­though shocked by the amount of cheese (she hadn’t read the menu cor­rectly), she said the pork was per­fectly ten­der, al­though the size de­feated her. Not a prob­lem that I en­coun­tered.
