Aberdeen’s restaurants get it right around the clock
So then, first thing’s first, forget the Coco Pops and get out to Aberdeen’s restaurants and cafes for breakfast or brunch. Even early in the day, you’re able to chow down on local delicacies that the folk of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are rightly very proud of. Most famous is the rowie or buttery – depending on which camp you’re in – and this little thing is almost like a flattened, rounded croissant that’s kind of flakey, salty and, buttery to taste. One of these, we’d say, is damn good served with jam and tea or coffee as the starter leading up to your full Scottish breakfast of black pudding, beans, square sausage, a tattie scone and much, much else. You won’t be leaving any of Aberdeen’s breakfast restaurants hungry, friends, but if you do need something to fill you right to the brim even after all of that, then, well, you know, just have a bowl porridge.
