Another food that Scotland is known for is their smoked salmon. I am a huge fan of seafood so I know that I will be taking advantage of this local delicacy. A couple of nights ago, I went to Mitchell’s Deli in St Andrews, where I tried it for the first time.
I ordered the Surf Board to share with a friend, which was made up of hot and cold smoked salmon, peppered mackerel, smoked halibut, garlic mayo, and bread. This board was phenomenal. The cold smoked salmon was my favorite. Put the garlic mayo on a slice of bread, topped with the salmon, and you will be in heaven! The mackerel and halibut were also good, just not something I am used to eating.
Also, as a fun fact, yesterday I saw Mark Wahlberg! I was heading towards the West Sands Beach, which is near the 18th hole. Suddenly a car slowly drove by, with Wahlberg in the passenger seat with the window down. I let out a gasp and he saw my happy face. He waved, knowing that I was a fan! I will keep you updated on any more famous people sightings in St Andrews since the golf course attracts people from around the world.
