The 5pm Dining blog always likes to keep an eye on what’s happening on the restaurant scenes of Dundee and Aberdeen.

If you’re buying then we would like to start with the seared scallop with braised pork cheek, parsnip and hazelnut followed by the Campbell’s of Linlithgow haggis with confit lamb shoulder, neeps and tatties. Thanks.
Moving up the coast to Aberdeen, La Stella has become The Adelphi Kitchen.
If La Stella focused largely on using great Scottish produce to make innovative, creative dishes, then The Adelphi Kitchen is more about the simpler pleasures of smoked or BBQ meat and top quality seafood.
