My first stop was with Love Fish, a stall showcasing seafood treats. My eye was caught by a mention of seafood chowder in a bread bowl (£5).Having spent some time helping Union of Genius with their trialling of bread bowls, both for soup and for curry with their Festival bunny chow, I was keen to try another variety.
This one, from a little bakery in south Glasgow, had a very stylish little tourie on its bonnet. It was generously filled with hearty looking soup by the friendly and chatty counter man. I was soon on my way with item in hand.I found a perch and tucked in, attracting many approving glances from those passing by, a number of whom were keen to find out where they could partake of this intriguing delight. I was happy to point them in the right direction.
The soup proved of very good quality with a range of chunky fish pieces and the odd prawns in evidence. The bread bowl retained its integrity very well and was nicely soaked with soup once I spooned things to a conclusion, making the chomping of the bowl a highly enjoyable and rewarding activity.
So overall, I was impressed with Love Fish and look forward to popping back to try some of their other dishes. Definitely add it to your list of places for a visit, this August.
