Last night's dinner at Crabshakk in Glasgow:


Monkfish cheeks w/ chorizo butter, fish & chips


Scallops w/ anchovy butter. Also had crab cakes & moules mariniere but didn't get any pics. The best seafood meal I've had for a long time.

I thought you only ate the tail (no homo) on Monkfish, the rest got binned, but good on 'em for finding a way to sell those bits.

Grill on the alley pal, Kobe beef burger. £20 but well worth it.

Never had one, but doesn't mincing a kobe steak make it kind of redundant?

Grill on the Alley do a decent burger, can't think of many other places to be honest.

Edit: Beaten to it!

I'm sure it's a Kobe blend mince, but why would it? It's just a higher standard of meat.

Aye Ross it is fairly pricey for the starters but the rest isn't too bad. It only came to 30 quid a head last night for 3 courses each + drinks.

Ay but I thought the best part about kobe was the texture you get from the marbled fat - if you blend or mince it instead of just cooking it as a steak then surely you lose this.

A good steak will make a good burger, provided you don't overcook it.
