Rough & Fraser
Dundee. Fog on the Tay. Not being blessed with much time before a meeting, it seemed like a trip to one of the city’s famed bakeries was the order of the day.
Having met regular guest quester Graham near the train station, we decided that we would see what we could find on our drive up the hill. We soon alighted upon Rough & Fraser which looked a likely spot.
With a snaking queue almost reaching the door, we had a moment to consider our options. We were both drawn in by talk of onion bridies, served hot, and I added a cold steak and gravy pie for good measure. This came to the princely sum of £3.09. Graham paid.
Rather than turning Graham’s car into a pastry graveyard, we held our nerve until reaching our meeting location before tucking in.
The bridies were absolutely first rate with delicious beef mince, outstanding flaky pastry, and warmly sweet onions.
The steak pie was pretty good, too, with the great scotch pie casing a real strength.
So overall, I really enjoyed our trip to Rough & Fraser. They flew the flag for Dundee pies with considerable charm and elan. I’ll make sure to visit next time I’m in these parts.
