We just bagged ourselves a tenner. We knew you’d be back.
If you’re feeling hungry then you’re definitely in the right place. And if you’re not, then you soon will be. With the Commonwealth games round the corner, we thought it’d be cool to dedicate this week’s tasty offerings to bonny Scotland; Glasgow to be precise. So if you’re planning a cheeky trip up North to check out the games, be sure to sample their local grub (and beer) whilst you’re there.
Glasgow, show us what you’ve got.
So, being in Glasgow and all, it makes sense to start native. Let’s get stuck into some traditional Scottish nosh. We present to you: ‘Guy’s’. A hidden gem right in the middle of Merchant City; it’s small but perfectly formed, like…(okay we won’t say what like…) The owner, Guy (obviously) has a real passion for food and you can definitely tell. Proud members of ‘The Scottish beef Club’ and using only the best produce around, it’s probably the only place you can get sushi, sashimi and ‘mince ‘n tatties’ all under one roof.

With five menus (yes, five!) including a lunch, pre-theatre, A La Carte menu and more, the place really has you spoilt for choice. If we could have it all, we would. Out of everything though, you need to the try the Glasgow Tapas. A mini steak pie, mince ‘n tatties, MacSween’s Haggis and chips. Oh man. What an absolute find. Of course, they also serve up the best Aberdeen Angus fillet steak EVER, the freshest locally sourced fish and Sanquhar reared, grass fed veal.
AND they host live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Bonus!
Ok, so let’s get this straight. It’s based in Glasgow, serves Italian food and has a German name? Right. Could we stray any further from the Scottish theme if we tried? Not to worry though, it’s the food that matters most, and oh boy, does this place matter.
A man cave if ever we did see one, ‘Republic Bier Halle’ is an edgy, dark hideaway for those days when you fancy stuffing your face with carbs and washing it down with nature’s golden elixir, beer. (Every day then?)

As if we needed to sell this to you any more, how about 2-for-1 pizza? 7 days a week! You heard right. Serving up food like there’s no tomorrow, Bier Halle offer the best stone-baked pizzas along with Italian ciabatta sandwiches, gourmet sausages and their infamous pizza burger. We’ll leave you to work that one out yourself.
Aptly named, the heavenly joint also boasts over 100 ice cold beers, ranging from Cypriot to Brazilian and Vietnamese to Canadian – all at decent prices too!
Meat lovers of the world rejoice. We may have just found the best steak house in the world (or Scotland at least). ‘Alston Bar & Beef’ is tucked away beneath the Gordon Street entrance to Glasgow Central Station, through the underground arches and down some stairs. After you’ve managed to find it, you won’t be disappointed. It’s Glasgow’s worst kept secret.
If your date’s a veggie then don’t despair, they even have some spot on vegetarian options. The Pea and Roquefort risotto sounds immense and the pan fried sea bream will satisfy the taste buds of any pescetarian.
We couldn’t leave you hanging without a good pud. Scots are famous for their deep fried mars bars, so expect something indulgent. We’re gagging for the chocolate tart with mascarpone and raspberries… (So what, we like chocolate, okay?)
So what do you fancy first? Better make it quick, next week for our grand finale we’re trekking back down south to the capital. Are you ready London?
