grilled queenies (£5.30)
queen scallops in garlic butter served on a rocket, sun blushed tomato, parmesan and olive salad
mussels with white wine, garlic, shallots and cream (£12.20 for 1 kilo)
set along rose street, a bustling bar and restaurant area of the city centre, we had had been recommended this restaurant by our trusty guide book.
don't be fooled by the basic chip shop style interior, the food is beautifully presented and the mussels are to die for. from mexican to moroccan and blue cheese to roasted pepper sauces, you can have your mussels in ½ kilo or kilo pots. i went for a kilo of course, which was roughly 60 mussels. what's more, they're sustainable too! :) double yum!
"Our mussels are grown on ropes in sea lochs on the West of Scotland and the Shetland Isles. They feed naturally in the plankton rich waters. Sustainability and care for the environment are an important part of the natural cultivation skills practised by our growers."
fancy trying cooking scallops yourself? maybe try my scallops with white wine, garlic and rocket linguine. or for another stunning seafood bar, i'd definitely recommend mourne seafood bar in belfast.
