If you're looking for al fresco lunch venues before the humidity spikes, check out Pomegranate Kitchen in Aberdeen. The once private kitchen is now open for lunch on week days only serving a range of dishes embracing the owner's Mediterranean roots with local flavours.
While the menu boasts seabass, salmon and lamb, we stuck to veggie options, trying the fattet, a unique (to me anyway....) way of presenting the humble humus by frying a pitta bread and topping it with warm chickpeas, cool tahini yoghurt and buttery pine nuts.
Alongside this we loved the Tunisian Shakshouka, dipping the Turkish bread into the runny yolks and smokey vegetable ragout.
And on the side we took the herb salad in its signature dressing of sumac and pomegranate molasses.
With its white table cloths and abundance of fresh flora, Pomegranate is the much needed oasis of calm in industrial Aberdeen, with easy parking at One Island South. Thank you for having us Pomegranate Kitchen!
