Making meal out of ‘quick bite’
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.
