An enduring neighbourhood favourite, the new menu at the Hyndland Fox in Glasgow is sure to please the palates of its fans and should give an excuse for those who’ve never tried ‘the Fox’, as its affectionality known, to book a table.
Blending local and international flavours, the Scottish feel is clear in the new Fox After Four menu with dish names like ‘tipsy laird’ and ‘clam porridge’. Scottish ingredients and produce are also used to create dishes influenced from around the globe.
We took a visit to try the new menu at the Hyndland Fox and picked six delicious delights to entice you through its doors.
1. Ras Hanout scallops, pine nut brittle & roast Jerusalem artichokes
The blend of international and local shines through in this starter dish that combines Scottish scallops with the north African spice mix res el hanout.
2. Rosemary cured Angus beef & pickled walnuts
Picked walnuts add a lovely crunch compliment to the cured Angus beef, a must try starter for cured meat fans.
3. Masala roast pumpkin, chilli kale dhal & raita
Veggies have a substantial option on the new menu’s mains.
The masala roast pumpkin is a huge portion and combined with the flavours of the chilli kale dhal offers a warming and comforting main.
4. Sea bass en papillote, wild pulse & clam porridge
A sea food spectacle for your table, the sea bass is baked in a parcel ensuring the fish is moist, succulent and flavoursome.
Surrounded by a mass of mussels and clams and filled out more with pulses, it’s another substantial main that fish lovers will enjoy.
5. Tipsy laird, wild berry jelly & Drambuie soaked trifle
There’s a strong chance you’ll feel like a tipsy lady or laird after eating this dessert. The trifle is soaked in Drambuie which packs a welcome punch.
All memories of Granny’s soggy trifle disappear with this dish, a grown-ups trifle that impresses.
6. Matcha green tea crème brûlée & shortbread
We very much doubt you’ve ever had a green coloured crème brûlée. This was also a first for us but you definitely shouldn’t let that put you off as this dessert is not to be missed.
Matcha green tea gives the colour and global influence topped off with classic Scottish shortbread and a nutty, oaty mix. A match made in heaven. Both desserts are suitable for vegetarians.
