Scottish Tapas in the Heart of Aberdeen


One of my aims this year was to try out new cafes and restaurants in Aberdeen that I hadn’t been before. I’m no foodie, but I do enjoy trying different food and restaurants. Nestled into the busy city centre of Aberdeen, I visited Ninety-Nine Bar and Restaurant with my Mum and sister at the weekend. We wandered in with no prior expectations as we hadn’t been before.


We were greeted with a funky interior and pleasant staff. As well as a range of drinks, you can also have Scottish Tapas with a wide range of various dishes. They offered three dishes for £15, so after much deliberation, we all chose three dishes each to share.

The dishes that we chose were; black pudding bon bons (special), goats cheese crotin, apples and sesame, battered haddock goujons, curried chickpea dhall, monkfish cheeks, Cullen skink, haggis spring rolls, nachos, and finally, the potatoes, capers & olives. (& yes, it took just as long to order them all as it did to read…)


Every single dish was just as tasty as they sound, and presented so nicely. We were a bit overwhelmed and didn’t know where to begin, but we quickly dug in to them all. My personal favourites were the black pudding bon bons, haggis spring rolls and the Cullen skink. All the food was freshly prepared, and fish delivered every morning from Peterhead.


I highly recommend popping by for a visit, especially if you want to taste some Scottish dishes. It’s also dog friendly, much to my delight, and I met a couple of friends.

Thank you for reading!

Until next time…
