A dish deserving of respect, haggis will always be synonymous with Scotland. Between its clever balance of ingredients, finely tuned union of flavours and cultural significance, it’s a culinary kingpin in its own right. Whether contemporary or classic, indulge in Scotland’s national dish and consult our edit of Glasgow’s best eateries serving ‘the great chieftain of the pudding race’.
The star of Glasgow’s gourmet haggis show, Stravaigin is less of a restaurant and more of a culinary adventure touring the globe one artisanal bite at a time. Blending in beautifully amidst the other worldly dishes, Stravaigin’s Own Haggis comes with classic neeps and Maris Piper mash paired with a whisky sauce and sage crisps. Awarded with the Michelin BIB Gourmand consecutively since 2012, this legendary eatery transforms the finest Scottish produce into a pioneering celebration of flavour.
Tried and true, Café Gandolfi is known for its inimitable atmosphere and first class Scottish cuisine. Set amidst a backdrop of driftwood and hypnotic stained glass, haggis is a signature dish on the Classics Menu. A testament to the Gandolfi empire’s dedication to honesty and locally sourced ingredients, the haggis hails from Cockburn’s of Dingwall and is paired, as it should be, with expertly prepared neeps and tatties.
Based in the heart of the West End, Roastit Bubbly Jocks is an easy-going bistro that boasts modern Scottish food prepared and cooked with soul. The kind that will warm you to the core, bringing back memory after memory. Praised for their Sunday roasts and hearty breakfasts, haggis is a regular contender across the expertly curated menus. Foodies can indulge in Scotland’s great chieftain from Dingwall served with a side of neeps and tatties to the veggie alternative, which is a beauty in its own right. With the view that it’s always haggis o’clock, the brunch menu showcases haggis in both The Glasgow Fry and the full Scottish vegetarian breakfast.
A culinary icon, Mister Singh’s India counts a long list of locals and happy travellers to its clientele. Although the Ambala, a traditional dish with a safeguarded family recipe, is perhaps the menu’s most popular dish, it’s safe to say that the haggis pakora comes in at a close second. A wondrous fusion of both cultures, this haggis dish is praised by the masses and is a wonderful representation of the culinary and cultural diversity in Glasgow. If the pakora isn’t your thing, then the haggis, neeps and tatties samosa is also one to rave home about!
