    First time I ever went in there they had a AA burger with a creamy mushroom sauce, never had a tastier burger.

    They also tried a pie burger. I'll try and explain what that is, it might get a bit complicated so try and keep up. It's a burger bap cut in half with a pie inserted in the middle.

    I think they sold about 3.

    Wifey that runs it is a dandie and I was told that the mannie cook is Darren Mackies old man but I've never confirmed, he always speaks about the dons though.

    Have they started the restaurant bitty next door yet?

    Is that nae just a pie bap? Jutes love them. They're also big on mince in a bap. Nothing new that like. Mince sarnies were popular up here in my youth as well.

    Affa fine.

    Wherever lorry drivers do gather, the pie-in-a-piece (some say softie), preferably washed down with a can of McEwan's Export, is the go-to repast.

    "Hattoncrook" . Another one of those made-up place names that have proliferated once some new Cala or Malcolm Allan hooses have been built for the upwardly-mobile who canna afford to bide in toon. It was aye Bogfechel when I was a loon, in the same way as 'Pitmachie' was Old Rayne.

    Lorry drivers must have an an awful diet unless they are some of the guys that carry a little stove about them and do a bit of home cooking under the cab. We were working up the Broch/ Peterhead way and we stopped in by a little post office type place in the middle of a long lay-by one morning and the guy had mock chops, white pudding etc heated and ready to go at 10am. Turns out a lot of the ASCO drivers stop in by. I like a morning piece but a king rib at 10am is just wrong.

    I worked in the maintenance squad at Arthur Simmers piggeries at bogfechel briefly. Worst job I ever had. Practically everyone who worked there headed to the Horseshoe Inn at lunch and after work. That was the building that the deli have just knocked down. Many a pub fight was had there, the staff would switch the lights off until it stopped. Pool cues and a'thing getting thrown about. The deli itself was actually a chipper back then.

    No takers for a cold mince sarnie. Preferably second days mince.

    Fit a rare piece.

    Aye that's the one. Makes sense he has a good stock of dirty mags if most of his customers are truckers. Ah the pages would get stuck together....with the grease from the king ribs,

    The late Michael Marra was once reminiscing about some of his Dundee worthy pals, and told of the time that The Four Tops (probably with at least three original members) played at the Caird Hall and the audience was a bit slow in reacting to their emotive powder-keg Motown grooves.

    In a bid to generate a bit of enthusiasm, one of the worthies jumped onstage and urged the Juteopolis soulsters to their feet, with some success. The Tops loved it, and let him stay on with them.

    Later on, he, who declared, "Noo eh'm the fufth Tap" took the Detroit soulsters on a trip round the less-salubrious shebeens and knocking shops of the crumpling, manky ruinous 'hood, ending back at someone's flat, where the Tops were introduced to Dundee soul food - "a piece wi chips". **** this 'butty' nonsense.

    When I cook mince I put a spoonful of mustard in the gravy. One of the best cooking tips I was ever given
