Where to find a haggis?

Okay guys, I know this is an odd one but this Friday is Robbie Burns Day. I live in the Beach and am looking for two items: Black pudding and haggis. I know some places in the NorthWest end (that would be Brampton) but really don't want to drive so far during the week. Does anyone know of a Scottish baker or butcher that makes both black pudding and haggis? Hell, either black pudding and haggis! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks! MLG

  1. A variety of suggestions were posted on this thread last August. I would guess most of them are still valid.

    1. Alan's Butcher in Whitby (maybe closer than Brampton). My Scottish brother in law served us a lovely haggis from there a couple of years ago. If you don't find anything closer...

        Oh, and I should add that when accompanied with a fine single malt served straight up...it is amazing how good oatmeal in sheep gut tastes. Seriously I was surprised by the whole taste event. I totatlly underestimated it. Ach aey :)

      2. If you're willing to come out to Scarborough, But N' Ben (SW corner of Ellesmere and McCowan) should be able to hook you up with both.

          Also at Ellesmere/McCowan, you can also check out St. Andrew's Fish & Chips for your search...it might even be in the same plaza! Known more for their fish and chips.

          1. re: jinxed

            Yeah, they are in the same little strip mall, but the OP asked for a baker/butcher, which is why I didn't mention St. Andrew's. However, if takeout will do, they do, in fact, have both black pudding and haggis on the menu. I can only vouch for the fish & chips, though, which are artery-clogging goodness - haven't tried any of the puddings and such.

          Kidding....

          Scotland?

          1. I think you may be able to get both at Meat on the Beach. I've bought haggis there before, and I think I've even seen black pudding there on one occasion.
