What to Eat in Glasgow

If you're on the hunt for traditional Scottish specialties, such as haggis served with neeps and tatties (grated sheep's organs and mashed potatoes and turnips) or cullen skink (a soup made of smoked haddock and potatoes), you'll find it in Glasgow. But if you're hoping to branch out from these classic Scottish dishes, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the scope of Glasgow's dining scene.

Indian fare now ranks among the city's best cuisine (in fact, Glasgow is often voted Britain's "curry capital") and deep-fried everything, especially deep-fried pizza, is another Glaswegian forte. The city is also recognized for its vegetarian and vegan fare – PETA UK named Glasgow the most vegan-friendly city in 2013.

Alchemilla, Bella Vita, Jodandys, MacTassos, Obsession of India, Ox and Finch, Scran and Wee Lochan are among the buzzy and popular restaurants demonstrating the wide variety of cuisine styles on offer in cosmopolitan Glasgow. The city also has numerous spots that are not exclusively or even primarily restuaruants, but which rank as food destinations, such as Mono (also a music venue and record store) and Drygate Brewery.

For a little help navigating Glasgow's dining scene, consider signing up for a food tour.
