At the end of last month we attended our first Foodie Friday at the Farmers Grill at The Store in Foveran, Aberdeenshire.

The Farmers Grill is a shipping container which has been transformed into a charcoal BBQ hut, cooking up local meat from the farm and butchery only meters away.

They are open through the day, seven days a week, but are also open in the evening on the last Friday of the month for Grill Nights. Plus there is an alcohol licence with some great wines and a range of local beers on offer.

The menu consists of burgers, steaks, hotdogs and a couple of specials. Perfect!

For starter I went for the hot smoked salmon pate, tasty and very big portion! The grilled lime juice over it was a lovely wee touch.

My boyfriend had the grilled tomatoes and shallots on toast, a kind of deconstructed bruschetta, with pesto. Which also went down very well. 

Washed down a really tasty and good value  bottle of red wine.

For the main I went for one of the specials, the cheese steak sandwich. OMG! Perfectly cooked strips of steak, in a soft roll with some grilled onions, lettuce and a generous serving of thick cheese sauce. Yum! The steak was so tender and juicy, possibly the best I have ever had.

My boyfriend went for the Aberdeen Angus beef burger, topped with bacon and cheese. Also very good, but the steak sandwich was the winner for me.

After this we were far too full to have a pudding, instead took the last of our wine outside to the courtyard, to enjoy the summer evening. 

We had a great evening at the Farmers Grill, and it was very good value for money. Will definitely be popping by again soon!
