Last weekend we drove through to St Andrews, which is a hop and a skip away from Dundee. We were visiting a restaurant, one we hadn't tried before.
We often drive to St Andrews for a meal. It's only about 20 minutes from Dundee and there's much more choice. It's a great place to shop too with lots of interesting wee independent shops, which are perfect if you are looking for gifts. It's also a nice place for a stroll on a sunny day. It has some gorgeous architecture and lots of cobbled streets.
The restaurant is called Ziggy's and it's down a side street just before the cinema.
So what kind of food can you expect?
The menu features homemade burgers, Mexican dishes and steaks.
What is the restaurant like?
The restaurant has a rock theme with lots of memorabilia and guitars on the walls, blue neon lighting and rock music playing.
What did we eat?
Cooper started with some garlic bread and then moved on to macaroni cheese. Graham started with a mixed salad and then had vegetable fajitas with guacamole and salsa (hold the cheese and sour cream for this vegan boy!). I started with Cajun Shroomies (Cajun breaded mushrooms) with garlic mayo and then had a veggie burger with fried onion, slaw and fries.
Oh yes! Well for Cooper and I anyway. There was nothing suitable for vegans. Cooper had chocolate ice cream and I had a knickerbocker glory.
What did we think?
Cooper enjoyed his meal, although he is going through a lean period at the moment and eating like a mouse, so he needed lots of encouragement.
Graham enjoyed his salad (which had a balsamic dressing) and his fajitas. He could possibly have done with another tortilla wrap to finish his sizzling vegetables though.
I loved my mushrooms, but didn't eat much of my burger I liked that there were lots of toppings to choose from and how well it was stacked up, but for me it could have done with more spice and to have been a bit crisper. I was also quite full after a week of Jumpstart 2015. However I did have room for a dessert, which was a real treat
Yes, but maybe not the veggie burger.
It was well priced. £3.15 for Graham's mixed salad and £4.95 for the mushrooms. My burger was £7.75 with the onions added and Graham's Fajitas were £11.45. Cooper ate from the kids menu which was £4.75 for a meal, drink and ice cream.
Where is it?
Disclosure: Ziggy's invited us to review their restaurant. I was not expected to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own
