Tasty treat won’t bite the bud­get

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - WHAT'S ON -

FEEL­ING the need for a treat, I made the de­ci­sion to seek out some dev­il­ishly-de­li­cious grub. So my mate Andrew and I chose to sam­ple the gothic charms of Slains Cas­tle on Bel­mont Street. De­spite the spooky sur­round­ings we got a warm wel­come from the friendly and at­ten­tive staff. I staked a claim on the Hunter’s Chicken (£5.95). The but­ter­fly breast was smoth­ered with ched­dar cheese, ba­con and a smoky BBQ sauce and came with chips and peas. The chicken was de­li­cious, if a bit dry, and could have done with more BBQ sauce. Andrew chose the lasagne (£5.65) and was suit­ably im­pressed. The dish looked home made, with plenty of tomato sauce and Ital­ian herbs. He said the ac­com­pa­ny­ing gar­lic bread was de­li­cious too, but could have had more crunch. I also tucked into a por­tion of onion rings (£1.25), which were cov­ered in a crisp, pep­pery bat­ter. Both the main dishes were part of the “Two meals for £8” deal, which was a pleas­ant sur­prise. With a cou­ple of drinks, the whole lot came to £12.45. So, for a tasty bite at a scar­ily de­cent price, Slains Cas­tle was ghoul­ishly good.
