skate wing + mashed potato

A super-sized skate wing at J Sheekey’s, some time in 2007. It was probably 25 or 30 quid then. Now it’s £40-50.

Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery

A skate at Two Fat Ladies in Glasgow last summer. £25, and one of the most hilariously terrible meals I’ve had in a while. But that’s a story for another time.

Soho, 2015. A whole (if smaller than Sheekey’s) skate, cooked perfectly, £12 at Rex & Mariano. A steal. Go, and have a load of the Sicilian prawns whilst you’re there too.
