An Edinburgh hotel has introduced its largest ever portion of fish and chips and is challenging diners to polish off the massive dish in its entirety.
Apex Grassmarket Hotel has added the 500g fillet of haddock to the menu along with chips, tartar sauce, minty mushy peas, pickled fennel, lemon and a pint of beer or glass of house wine for £20.
Diners that complete the challenge, which is three times the size of the hotel’s standard portion, receive a miniature dram of whisky, collapsible copper shot cup and crown to remind them of their efforts, and are also entered into a prize draw to win a meal for two at the hotel.
Alan Taylor, GM at Apex Grassmarket, said: “The fish supper is a classic dish and a firm favourite for many across the country, including myself. We have taken the dish to a new level with the addition of Edinburgh’s biggest fish supper ‘The King of the Sea Supper’, which I’m sure our diners will be eager to taste and attempt to finish!
“Britain is increasingly a nation of foodies who delight in sharing their gastronomic finds across their social channels and I’ve no doubt this dish will catch their attention and net some likes.”
