Traditional Scottish meal in Glasgow?
We'll (2 adults, 2 children ages 7 and 11) be in Glasgow in mid-August and would like to have a typical Scottish meal. Recommendations on a family-friendly restaurant, preferably near the airport, would be appreciated. What should we order? Steak pie? Haggis, neeps, and tatties? Anything vegetarian?
As far as I know there's nothing really around the airport. Obviously the airport has some of the usual food outlets but no decent restaurants as such! You'll have to hop in a cab (15-20 mins) and head to the city centre/West End. What kind of price are you looking at? You can't go too wrong with Stravaigin on Gibson Street, though, which I think is very representative of Scottish food in that it always has haggis, neeps and tatties and fish & chips on its all-day menu, but also lots of lovely curries and stuff like that (Glasgow being more famous for its Scottish-Indian food than perhaps any other!).
The airport is only 15 mins from the city centre and in a bit of a wasteland! If you're comfortable with a taxi ride to the city I'd recommend going to the west end of Glasgow to either Stravagin, the Bothy or The Ubiquitous Chip (downstairs fancy/expensive, upstairs more affordable and still yummy.
Haggis Neeps and Tatties are usually available as a starter or main course.
