Glasgow’s food scene hasn’t always had the best reputation – we’re talking about the home of the deep-fried Mars Bar, after all. But anyone who truly knows it will tell you Scotland’s biggest city boasts a thriving (and vastly underappreciated) culinary culture – plus a wide range of top restaurants servicing the ever-growing demand. Inventive use of produce sourced from the rich Scottish larder, friendly informality and excellent value for money are all hallmarks of contemporary Glaswegian dining. And these days you’ll find upscale bistros and brasseries, hip vegan cafés, first-rate steakhouses and a constellation of excellent Indian, Italian and Chinese restaurants offering sophisticated, vibrant, impressive variety – so much so, you could spend weeks here and your taste buds would never get bored. Looking for inspiration? Here’s our pick of the best restaurants in Glasgow right now.
