Aberdeen Restaurant Week 2019 is back from the 15 - 21 July 2019, giving you the opportunity to fill your week with some serious eats, at your city centre favourites. With only a few days to go, the only thing standing in your way is deciding what/where you are going to eat for lunch and dinner from the 15 - 21 July. And, maybe asking yourself the question - can I try them all?
If you're struggling to choose where to dine next week then look no further. Introducing our #ARW2019 Brand Ambassadors, who will be giving you the low down and providing you with exclusive reviews on what you can expect from your dining experiences. Give them a follow and be prepared for some serious food envy for the next week!
Let's get to it and meet the team!
Claire Jessiman is a Scottish freelance food and travel writer based in Aberdeenshire who has been blogging her Edible Scottish Adventures as Foodie Quine since 2012. A mum of two and wife of one, she is passionate about cooking from scratch, seasonality, food education and family-friendly recipes. She's always keen to seek out food specialties, markets and experiences whilst travelling in the UK and abroad and is eager to champion local farmers, suppliers and producers. Addicted to social media, Claire is also partial to Cheese, Gin, Peanut Butter and Rhubarb and is permanently looking for the recipe that can successfully combine them all.
Becca Walker - lipstick loving makeup artist by day, vegetarian foodie and gin lover by night. Becca blogs about all things cruelty free beauty, lifestyle and local happenings related with a shot of no nonsense attitude and a twist of self deprecation.

We are Sarah & Euan and together we are the The YoungWilsons! We are a recently married couple from Ellon and we stay there with our two pugs (Douglas & Keebo). We are both disney obsessed and enjoy eating out and trying lots of new food! We love heading out on adventures and exploring the world together while drinking lots of gin & whisky!
Christy Williamson is a local lifestyle blogger at Dinner Stories who loves to eat, drink and travel - sharing "dinner stories" from Aberdeen and shire, and our adventures around the globe!
Waffling on about food is a food Instagram page run by Darren and Morven, a local Aberdeenshire couple. They use their instagram page to highlight some of their favourite food spots throughout Aberdeen City and Shire. When they are not scouting out a new place in town, they are off exploring other cities and countries. Some of their recent food-based trips have included Manchester, Belfast, Berlin and Mexico. Their food photos range from street food to tasting menus and everything in between.
Whether it be eating out or cooking up a storm in the kitchen, Colin is never far away from food. With eating always on his mind, it only seemed right that he turned to the world of blogging to share his love for food and give his readers content to make sure they never go hungry. Restaurant reviews, cost saving recipes and travel inspiration, you’ll find something for your taste on his blog.
Meet Nikki, the face behind the food photos! With a love for all things tasty – from fast food to Michelin star dining – Nikki decided to take her passion for food global less than a year ago and has already enjoyed sharing her food adventures from as far afield as Dubai, Boston and Queenstown. A bit closer to home she is a keen supporter of ‘eat local’ so you’ll probably find her in one of Aberdeen’s many fantastic foodie spots (and quite possibly with a gin in her hand)!
Review - Dinner - Howies
I'm Greg, lover of all things craft beer (and food of course) and I've been blogging over on gregwhodrinksbeer for almost three years to the day now. Initially just focusing on craft beer, my blog soon evolved to include content about local food, travel and more recently - my love of running. I am a keen runner, with me running my first marathon in Cyprus earlier in the year, and in November I'll be taking part in the New York City Marathon. My favourite Aberdeen restaurant is Maggie's Grill and I'm looking forward to what Mac's Pizzeria will bring to the city...because Aberdeen need's more pizza joints!
