Review on Two Fat Ladies
No relation to the leather-clad foodie ladies you may have seen on TV, this fascinating little place – a stone's throw from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery – takes its name from the bingo-speak of its address ('two fat ladies' – '88'!!).
The premises may look small, unassuming and rather cramped, with a galley-sized kitchen virtually by the front door and only eight tables, but the mood is thoroughly agreeable.
Piscine décor and artwork dotted around the room point up the culinary intentions of the place. Fresh seafood is the name of the game, and simplicity is the kitchen's hallmark. A bowl of steamed Loch Etive mussels with white wine and cream makes a great starter or you could go for king prawns sautéed in garlic, chilli and coriander butter. Main courses are equally straightforward: whole lemon sole with saffron and coriander butter or fillet of sea bass on basil mash, for example. A few meat and game dishes are also available, and desserts could range from a trio of crème brûlées to mixed berry Pavlova.
There is a second branch at 118A Blythswood Street, close to Glasgow city centre, and TFL recently took over the legendary Buttery on Argyle Street.
