If you don’t know about Aberdeen Restaurant Week (ARW) yet, where have you been?!
This fantastic foodie week has been an initiative held by Aberdeen Inspired and delicious, local Aberdeen restaurants for the past few years now and it’s BACK!
And as an ambassador for the event again, I’m delighted to tell you about the foodie week.
As of 24th February 2020 for the whole week, a plethora of restaurants and cafes around the city will be offering up some exclusive set menus for the week only.
The Menu Options
With the option of a 2-course lunch menu for £10 or a 3-course dinner for £20, it really is a brilliant time to head out and discover our local eateries at a great cost.
If those two offers don’t tickle your fancy, there are also restaurants showcasing tasting menus which are unique experiences especially for ARW. Why not try Cafe Boheme’s tasting menu where you can indulge in a 5-course meal paired with 5 glasses of wine for £60 or afternoon tea at The Station Hotel.
Perhaps you’d prefer to try your hand at some cooking yourself? Well, that’s possible with several eateries offering you the chance to take part in a cooking class. Think homemade pasta at Pasta; Thai cuisine at Chaophraya; or a mouth-tingling curry at Namaste Delhi.
The Street Food Tours
The newest addition to the Aberdeen Restaurant Week portfolio is the Street Food Tours. The team have partnered with Grampian Escapes and Tours to bring the exclusive tours to the streets of Aberdeen so you can learn about the history of the food scene in Aberdeen, hear about the passion for food from the restaurant owners themselves, while delving into some of the best street food Aberdeen has to offer.
Throughout you will get to try dishes from The Pigs Wings, LatinWay, Tango Turtle and finish off at Mackies Ice Cream.
