De­li­cious din­ner in front of TV

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

SUN­DAY night tele­vi­sion ... I hate it. As an es­cape route from the re­al­ity-show night­mare I sug­gested a meal out. The Brig O’ Don, with its friendly, lively at­mos­phere, was the eatery of choice. As we were ush­ered to our ta­bles I was in for a shock – a tele­vi­sion at the end of ev­ery ta­ble. Thank­fully the hefty menu was big enough to blank out some non­sense about Dancing on Ice. My friend opted for the steak pie (£7.99) which ar­rived packed full of suc­cu­lent chunks of prime Bri­tish beef. Mar­i­nated in Belhaven beer, it was topped with golden puff pas­try. The steak pie, which ar­rived with sea­sonal veg­eta­bles and creamy mash, was quickly pol­ished off. I went for the veg­etable lasagne (£7.99), ac­com­pa­nied with gar­lic bread and a large, fresh salad. The dish was packed with veg­eta­bles in a rich, creamy sauce. Topped with shaved parme­san, it was de­li­cious. We also or­dered onion rings (£2.19) and potato wedges (£2.79) as a side or­der. And for dessert we shared a Swiss milk chocolate cheesecake (£4.29) that was a de­li­cious end to the evening.
