Eating in Aberdeen
Aberdeen has a number of restaurants where all the world's cuisine is
represented. And like everywhere else in Scotland you can of course find
yourself a pub and get a reasonably good meal for a cheap money. But remember
that not all pubs in Aberdeen serve food during the evening.
Now, Scots are not primarily known for their contributions to international
haute cuisine, but if you dare you can try the Scottish specialty haggis. The
recipe varies, but the main ingredients are liver and heart from sheep, mixed
with onions, flour, fat and salt. Preferably with a scotch of whiskey.
Aberdeen is a bit more expensive than neighboring cities, but it is not that

quality. Open all days.
Little Italy logically serves Italian food. You can find the
restaurant at 79 Holborn Street. Here you will find all kinds of pasta and pizza
dishes that you know before. One advantage of the restaurant is that it remains
open until 0200 at night Thursday through Saturday. The rest of the week closes
at midnight, except for Sundays where the restaurant is closed all day.
If you want to eat really cheap and at the same time taste arctic fish and
chips then go to Ashvale at 46 Great Western Road. It is said
that this is the most famous and best fish and chips restaurant in the entire
region. Closes late and has plenty of space, 300 seats.
Nightlife in Aberdeen
If you have not visited Scotland before, you have something to look forward
to. Here there is a high ceiling and a great atmosphere, almost every day,
although things tend to take off on weekends. So it is in Aberdeen. A number of
bars and pubs fill up with people drinking their pint and ale and meeting the
evening with a good mood.
One of the best pubs is The Prince of Wales. You will find
this popular pub on 7 St Nicholas Lane, not far from Union Station. A large
selection of beers on both bottles and barrels combined with reasonable prices
ensures that the premises are usually packed.
For those a little younger we can recommend Cocky Hunters,
located at 504 Union Street. It is popular with students and the pub often
offers live music.
