Trend puts the latest additions to the city to the test!



Forget your traditional meal deals and leave your packed lunch at home! If you’re looking to spice up your lunch hour, the newly opened Freshmex has something for everyone to add a bit of heat to your day.

A wide array of options are available, from traditional Mexican fajitas to a hearty chilli packed burrito for those who need that extra kick in their afternoons. You’ll be spoiled for choice by the fillings and additional toppings that are all included in the reasonable prices. The adventure for your tastebuds doesn’t stop there – impress your colleagues and try the chilli chocolate brownies, they pack a punch, but are ideal for a post-lunch snack.

Mamma Pizza

Walk into Mamma Pizza and you’ll likely find yourself enjoying your traditional Italian fare sat next to quite a few Italians – a good sign of just how good the food is when Italians themselves are flocking to this molto buona restaurant.

The food is simple but tasty, and all prepared by Italian chefs. Start off with the deep fried rice balls filled with melted mozzarella and ragù sauce, followed by typically Italian thin crust prosciutto pizza or tonnarelli bolognese pasta.

Wash it all down with a bottle of vino of your choice – the restaurant is BYOB – and enjoy a relaxed evening of la dolce vita.

Authentic doesn’t come close to describing Aberdeen’s newest Thai restaurant. Located in the former Monkey House building, everything in Chaophraya is truly Thai in origin.

From the food, handcrafted by native Thai chefs in the specially designed kitchen, to the traditional Thai welcome by the waiting staff, to the décor imported all the way from Thailand itself, Chaophraya is a cultural food haven in the middle of the Granite City.  The food is exquisitely prepared and presented, with the beef dishes in particular succulent and deliciously flavoured with herbs and spices. As for the cocktails, they’re out of this world. It would be criminal not to try one.
