Best Scottish Restaurants In Glasgow
Country of the brave, land of the free, home of the Irn Bru. Scotland is known for many things - its unconventional culinary offerings being one of them. But, besides chips and gravy and battered Mars Bars, it's also distinguished for its first-rate farming, Highland-reared meat and North Sea seafood. For those wanting to experience some of the country's finest produce or if you're just feeling Mel Gibson-level patriotic, here's a list of the best Scottish restaurants in Glasgow.
The Finnieston is a refreshing mix of the old and the new - a contemporary seafood restaurant with a history as Glasgow's first and best gin cocktail bar. Its bar houses over 60 gin brands, all hand-picked by the venue's award-winning bartenders. Count us (G)in.
One for the meat lovers, Porter & Rye specialises in dry-aged beef. Meat is treated in-house to ensure the unique flavour and texture that comes from the process is maintained throughout. The accompanying fresh produce is either sourced locally or foraged to create a truly wild dining experience for customers.
They may have Scottish origins but these dishes are anything but traditional. The large menu features fun and inventive plates including various burgers, tacos and pizzas (shout out to the scorched jerk chicken & corn sourdough pizza). However, they do offer smoked haggis bites with house BBQ ketchup which sounds like a modern update that we can get behind.
Set in a beautiful Grade 1 listed building in Glasgow city centre, the US-Scottish restaurant uses the finest local produce to create its combination Ameri-Scot menu. Open 7 days a week, the venue also has a cocktail bar with a heavy focus on whisky, bourbon and gin
Inspired by the owner's home region in the west coast peninsula of Ardnamurchan, this snazzy joint sources all its produce from the surrounding Highlands and islands. The restaurant's menu specialises in serving unpretentious comfort classics such as seafood chowder, braised venison stew and black pudding fritters accompanied by an extensive wine list. Magic.
Located in the heart of Merchant City, Rab Ha's has an eclectic menu of International and traditional Scottish small plates, dishes and sharing platters, meaning there really is something for everyone. Sometimes they've even combined the two cuisines to create a continental hybrid. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you ... the haggis pakora.
Fondly known as 'the Chip' among locals, Ubiquitous Chip is an unquestionable Glaswegian institution. Complete with an indoor-rainforest, glass atrium and numerous fairy lights this aesthetic 'AF' landmark also serves up a number of dishes all inspired by various Scottish regions.
