EmmaEats on Tour: Dundee Part 2

So hopefully you have read the first part of my post on my recent trip to Dundee which tells you about about my lunch at Jute Cafe Bar and my stay in the Malmaison, you can see that by clicking here. This part is all about my amazing dinner at Bridgeview Station and the final part tells you all about my lovely lunch at Castlehill, which can be viewed by clicking here. I was only in Dundee for a little over 24 hours so I didn't manage to get to a lot of restaurants but I did my best. It is somewhere that I definitely want to go back to.

So for dinner I had decided to go to Bridgeview Station - this is a restaurant I had come across previously and loved the look of the menu so I knew when I finally got around to going to Dundee it was were I was going to have my dinner. The chef there is Rory Lovie - you may have caught him at one of his pop ups in Glasgow. As I’ve said in part one already - it was a miserable day so I was delighted when I arrived into the warm and welcoming Bridgeview Station and was shown to my table by the window.

Whilst I was sitting there all I could think of was that on a summers day the view must be amazing here … but on the night I was there it was so dark and yes, miserable, I couldn’t see a thing. I was given three menu’s - the March menu, the classic menu and the all important drinks menu. There is loads to choose from on these menus with each dish sounding amazing - but I finally made my decision and went for the almond milk pannacotta, broccoli, toasted almonds for starter, poached blairgowrie chicken, wild leeks & garlic, mushrooms, chicken consomm√© with a side of greens for mains and dark chocolate bavarois, sea buckthorn sorbet and crystallised chocolate. Each dish was just delicious.

My starter was so tasty - everything worked really well together. I loved the broccoli aspect of the dish - it was so full of flavour - I will admit I nearly licked my bowl clean it was that good. 

For mains my chicken was just cooked to perfection - I had my doubts about the chicken consomm√© when I ordered the dish but again the taste from this was just great. 

Finally my dessert was, can you guess, delicious. Everything on the plate was just so full of flavour and tasted amazing. 

This is a gem of a place with really good food at really good prices, you can get two courses for £18 or 3 for £23 pounds - for the quality of the food this is an amazing price.

As it was dark and wet (yes I had to mentioned it again) when I arrived i didn’t get any nice photos of the restaurant itself - however I managed to get some directly from the restaurant just so you could see how pretty the place is.

The food, service and atmosphere here are great, I really loved everything about it and I will definitely visit again. 

So after all that delicious food I headed back to the hotel and straight to my room. I had hoped to maybe sample a cocktail or two but I was just way too full, so I just had a early night instead. 

Don't forget to check out parts 2 & 3.

Thanks a mil for reading.
