Scott’s Larder is one of those places that I’m been meaning to feature as a Local Lunch post for ages. Mr B loves popping down there for some fine lunchtime fayre. At first glance you might think it’s the usual burger van, but it’s a gem of a find, serving much higher quality food! As you can see, we’re not the only fans!
Parked up outside a gym nestled within the depths of an industrial estate, it’s not the easiest place to find for those not in the know, but their Facebook page provides a daily update of special mains and soups. There’s also a more traditional lunch menu (baguettes, baked potatoes) on their website.
It’s not the kind of place where you can hang around to eat your food (ie there’s no seating) but the canal is not far away if you’re after a scenic view while you chow down. And they do delivery (presumably within a small local radius of 1-2 miles).
Being a Friday, the special dish is always a curry which Mr B was well up for trying.
So.. what did we eat?
After the spice of our pepperpot stew earlier in the week, I was happy with a beef chilli topped baked potato. Served with a meaty (as in substantial!) salad of carrot and pepper batons, red onion and salad leaves, the beef was lean, the spice level one that was pleasant but still flavoursome. The large potato was soft but the skin had a good crunch. Perfect!
Mr B’s curry was of the thai green chicken variety. It included fine beans and was flavoured with lemongrass, ginger and coriander. Not only was their curry but there was also steamed white rice, prawn crackers, naan bread and a ginger and chilli pickled watermelon topping. Not bad for a fiver, and something you’d be very hard pressed to find in a restaurant for less than double the price!
