    They are kinda flat bread baps. If that makes sense. Sweetish, and usually a little salty too. Lard is a favoured ingredient, and they sizzle in the toaster, mmmmmmm. Need to stop, or i'll ging mad. I've got a pic of Willie Miller and Alex McLeish holding a gigantic one, but that's going too far. Stand free peeps

    Rowies are indeed the food of the gods. I introduced wiskey to them and now I have to take some down everytime I go south.

    Eating a tattie scone with cheese & bacon! :D

    Butteries are a more Angus/Dundee & as their name suggests, use butter instead of Lard. Bit softer/doughier as well IIRC. Been years since I last ate one.

    Yup, Thains bakery in late-night munchie mode is a true wonder. Half a dozen 2nd-day rowies for 50p :) Just delicious, toasted with cheese or Tate & Lyles Golden Syrup. 2nd-day is just fine as Rowies keep for ages, traditionally they were made to last without special storage on the fishing boats. Some relatives swear that they don't reach their best till they are about a week old.

    Another recent innovation is the Veggie Rowie. Dearer, but sometimes also available 2nd-day for the same price. For once, the switch to Veg fat makes no difference to the quality of the Rowie & indeed, I prefer them to traditional as I tend to like my rowies less greasy. However, if you want the full-fat experience, go for Aitkens or Grampian Bakery! Both made amongst the fish-houses in Torry! :)

    Shit! I feel a late-night blat to Thains coming on. Been sitting here wondering what I'd like to eat. Then I checked this thread.

    Hmmm, cheese, syrup or one of each? Choices! :D

    Dunno actually, but 'shuch aye' was/is common parlance amongst the park keeping team in Hazelhead in the early nineties. I didn't understand half of what was being said, conversations like this were common:

    Parkie 1: Hoot toot
    Parkie 2: Aye
    Parkie 1: Shuch aye
    Parkie 2: Schuch
    Parkie 3: Aye

    All while gazing out upon the drizzle through shed window :)

    Took a couple of rowies out of the freezer last night to celebrate each of the Dons goals at easter road ;)
    Had them for breakfast with jam, and felt like a king for five mins. Must try the branston/mayo combo...
