The Bay Fish N Chips, Stonehaven, Aberdeen

THE NEXT EVENING WAS A FRIDAY.... Aaron came back earlier than his usual time and took us to Stonehaven, a 15 miles away and a half hour drive from our place.  It is my third time going to Stonehaven and as far as I can remember, the famous joints are The Bay and Auntie Betty's.  

Originally a fishing village built around the High Street, and formerly known as Stonehive, the town has grown to a population of around 11,000. The sense of history, with the impressive ruined fortress of Dunnottar Castle, the awe inspiring views of the sea and harbour, the friendliness of the local people, combine to make Stonehaven  special.  Stonehaven is the main county town of Kincardineshire and the Mearns, although, due to Local Government changes, the town now lies within Aberdeenshire.  In August 2010, Stonehaven was voted the best seaside town in Scotland in a survey carried out by the Bank of Scotland which looked at the quality of life in coastal towns throughout the country, looking at factors such as crime rates, weather, property prices and earnings.

I normally don't like the normal Fish n Chips cos the fish Are usually frozen.  But I have second thoughts when I tasted The Bay Fish n Chips, the fish is so fresh and succulent.  My girl who is rather fussy on food, told her brother that we must come here here again for their Fish!!  And of course, it includes their homemade ice cream too!
The Bay is our first stop!
Just look at the long queue... 
Two lines and someone need to queue up for the famous Fish n Chips, right!
While waiting, we walked around.....
Ample parking for the locals and tourists....
Along the beach....
Stonehaven is another one of the famous beach spots....
A relaxing place to chill out.....How I wish... 

Yes, wishing Labby is here strolling too....
Outside the Auntie Betty's ice cream shop....
And our enormous fish n chips!
Two scoops of rum n raisin and diam something....
Thanks Aaron for waiting and getting us our dinner!
We are famished....Let's dig in!!

    That fish and chips place is a good find. Very hard to find restaurants selling fresh fish there, since their SOP is immediately freeze everything.

  8. The traditional fish and chips. Looks good!

    Triple cooked chips were at one point quite readily available in traditional fish and chip shops in London but not so now. I don't know about up North. Unfortunately, polystyrene is still widely used although paper plates and paper food cartons can be seen in fish and chip shops in London including other eateries.

  9. What a lovely place by the beach! I agree that most Fish & Chips used frozen fish and they tasted different.

    Without your glasses, you always looked like Aaron's sister. Now you looked like his loving mama! You look elegant with glasses.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
