Anstruther, Alba, Scotland, UK (Gastrosofie). The Best Five in the Kingdom of Five in Alba is in an old fishing village called Anstruther. Salmon, mackerel, herrings, cod, haddock. These fish are available, for example, in the award-winning Anstruther Fish Bar, which is not just a snack, but also a restaurant. Prices have been hailing almost year after year since 2005.
Fishing village? You could also say and write small towns, because the place with around 3,500 inhabitants consists of Anstruther Easter, Anstruther Wester and Kilrenny. And then there is the real village of Cellardyke. They are all on the Abhainn Dhubh (Firth of Forth). It is a fjord and not the oversized estuary of the River Forth.
The Picts are said to have lived in Anstruther in the past and brought their fish to shore. So it’s no wonder that the Scottish Fisheries Museum, known as the Scottish Fisheries Museum, now stands in old buildings across from the harbor. Well worth a visit, but then head to the Anstruther Fish Bar & Restaurant, whose reputation is legendary.
But please don’t just order and eat the award-winning fish & chips, but also the fresh seafood and fish from the fishing grounds in front of Anstruther. Even today, owners Alison and Robert Smith have their sister company Argofish deliver good seafood every morning. The fish is filleted by hand on site and delivered fresh.
An extensive menu with seafood and fish, haddock, halibut, hake and snot tongue through to crab and lobster (of course seasonal) is sourced sustainably. How about haddock in breadcrumbs or traditionally hadock in batter? The “catch of the day” and fresh fish from the quay is always good for a surprise. Hake (hake) in batter, breadcrumbs or grilled sounds as delicious as lemon sole (red tongue) in batter. Cod fish is also delicious – no question about it. There is all this and much more in the
