Blue Lagoon - Skirving Street
I’ve never been to the Blue Lagoon on Skirving Street, mainly due to the fact that Guido’s on Coustonholm Road is marginally closer to me, however I wandered along one Sunday night to claim my winnings of a Fish Supper.
I’ve always seen people sitting in, however as a lazy Sunday evening was in store, I ordered the supper, and another one for my partner, to take away. Two girls were working behind the counter, who were very pleasant, and having shown them the letter I got my wrapped up tastiness to take away with me. As a bit of an avid badge fan, I then asked about the badge which led to a fair bit of hilarity as the girls, who, being eastern european, spoke better english than i tend to as a southsider, but did not know what a 'badge' was. Cue a game of charades, with as many words as possible to explain ‘badge’, which ended when one of the girls recognised the logo from the letter, and grabbed the badge from a shelf – I can honestly says it’s been the most fun I’ve ever had in a chip shop!
After a quick walk home, we sat down to eat our dinner. I was surprised at the amount in each supper – lots of chips, and one and half fish in each. My main worry with food from chip shops is grease, however neither the fish or the chips were particularly greasy, and with the addition of some tomato ketchup, the suppers went down a treat - Very tasty! I’ll definitely go back when a ‘chippie’ craving next hits.
