Soul food is a big thing in USA at the moment and Aberdeen is not being left out. Enjoy dishes like gumbo, southern fried chicken, smoked pulled pork, Cajun blackened salmon and much more.
Maggie’s Grill is about four tenths of a mile from Holburn Junction at the west end of Union Street. It is a cosy, informal diner.
On our first visit (we will be back!) the pulled pork sandwich was absolutely mouth watering, with tender pulled pork, coleslaw and barbecue sauce. But, although it was very flavoursome, the flavours were expertly balanced to ensure that nothing overpowered the other subtle flavours. The Howlin’ Wolf Chilli was similarly strong on flavours, but nicely balanced. This was a taste sensation with the usual minced beef complemented by smoked brisket and a section of chillies. It was pretty hot, but not overly so. Served on a bed or rice with the best corn bread I have tasted.
With all that going for it, it’s not surprising that it is pretty popular, so booking is advisable.
